check the back of your laptop, there's got to be some kind of identification, service tag, serial number or something. then you could try to check on the producer's site if they offer support for your tag.
For example, my Dell Precision has a Service Tag on it's back, and when I go to get drivers from their site, i can either pick a model, or enter the service tag.
Another solution is to call the producer and ask if they have your serial number in the database.
Can't think of another solution, hope these ideas help
Assuming by 'fake laptop' you mean that it has fake specifications when sold, you could check either by validating the components by hand, or booting into an operating system that you know has not been tampered with, and checking what is listed. (
