Have you ever wondered how old your or actually is? Time can really fly especially when you’re busy at school or work and a new or laptop can surprisingly quickly start to develop issues related to it’s age. So rather than digging through your receipts drawer or wracking your brain trying to remember when you purchased your I’ll instead show you a super easy and fast way how to tell how old your PC or laptop is.

If you’re using Windows XP, 7, 8 or 10 simply hold the Windows key (it’s the one on your keyboard usually to the left of the space bar right next to ALT) and press the R key. You should be presented with a box that you can type a command into. Now type msinfo32 and press enter. 

So to repeat that it’s Windows key + R then type msinfo32 and press enter.

You should now see a window pop up that shows your system information. Look for an entry about halfway down on the right called BIOS Version / Date. This is the date your computer motherboard was built. Add a month or two to this date to allow for shipping and the time it may have sat on the shelf in a store and you have a very close idea of when you purchased your PC and at the very least a solid date at how old the components that make up your PC are. 

Have a great day!
