Laptop Serial Number location

A software installation asks for the serial number of my laptop - but wont accept the one that is printed on the underside of the laptop. Is the serial number stored internally in the software of the computer - how can I access it?

Sounds strange for a software install to ask for your Laptop Serial number. any info on what the software is called, your laptop Make & Model and you windows ?

I'm trying to install Avanquest Fix-It Utilities 7 . A previous installation didn't ask for this info .

click here may give it to you but I`m surprised too. Are you sure it`s not asking for the Serial Number for the programme?

Belarc confirms the serial number - perhaps they are asking for a product registration number - however it appears on the user info card.
