Identify Brand & Model
Identifying the correct laptop brand, series, model number, screen size and resolution is essential to finding the correct part for your laptop. The laptop series is typically more prominently displayed as part of the branding of your laptop, typically on the top cover, or on the keyboard area or display panel area of your laptop when you open it up. However, laptop model numbers are not always easy to find. Please select your laptop manufacturer, below, to get help identifying your correct model and series. Please note that some manufacturers have both a series AND a model number, you will need to identify both of these numbers to find your part. Other manufacturers only require a series to be identified, as shown below.
