How To: Find Your LCD Panel’s Model & Other Information

Whether you want to find a replacement for your laptop’s LCD, or know the safest and most optimal monitor overclocking configurations, or just simply know some technical details, you will most definitely need your LCD panel’s model or ID in order to look it up.

Nailing lazy thumbnailing.

Without any further bullshittery, let me show you how you can do that.

Step 1: Download HWiNFO (Hardware Information)

You’re going to need a tool called as HWiNFO, which you can download from here.

This tool gives you a heck ton of technical information about your system. From hard drive models and temperatures to your monitors’ hardware IDs and what not.

Going “Ham With Information” (HWiNFO)

After the download is complete, extract the .zip file anywhere you like. In the extracted folder, you will see HWiNFO32.exe and HWiNFO64.exe.

Step 2: Run HWiNFO

Run HWiNFO32.exe if you are on a 32-bit system.

Run HWiNFO64.exe if you are on a 64-bit system.

You will see a little window like this:


Click on Run.

Step 3: Check your LCD model

Close/Ignore all the extra windows that open with HWiNFO, and jut keep the main window open. This is the main window:


Expand the “Monitor” section in the left panel of the window to see your specific LCD monitor. Then, click on the specific LCD monitor to highlight it and show all the technical information of it on the right panel of the window (shown in the above image).

You can see just how many technical details it displays. Out of all this information, your LCD panel’s model will be the first line itself, as highlighted in the below image:

You’re done! Now you know how to get your LCD’s technical information.
