How do I get the Product and Serial Number of ASUS EeePC netbook on Windows (XP preferably)?
Edit: I am not a label reader and I am interested to retrieve the two numbers by software or tool.

I can see two ways to do this:
Type "msinfo32" on your "Run"(Windows Button+R). Search for "System Model" or "System Serial". Certainly you will find the information that you need here.
SIW(System Information for Windows):
SIW is an advanced System Information for Windows tool that analyzes your computer and gathers detailed information about system properties and settings and displays it in an extremely comprehensible manner.
Or even a 3th option:
HKLM\HARDWARE\DESCRIPTION\SYSTEM. There is a lot of information about your system an about your BIOS here.
You can also do this from the command line by typing
wmic bios get serialnumber
This will give you the laptop or desktop computer serial number.
wmic csproduct get name will give you the computer model.
I can confirm these both still work in Windows 7.

If for some reason the sticker is not there, you can use software tools to recover the product key and get the model of your system. Belarc Advisor is one such tool.
From the site:
Overturn your EeePC. There will be a sticker with with the Serial Number (SN:). That is your serial number. But if like mine, with time, the Serial Number on my EeePC has disappeared, then what ?!
Instead of my Serial Number, the sticker has become blank ! Shame on you Asus for using disappearing ink for the serial number.
If you still have your EeePC package box, then the Serial Number (SN:) is printed on the box. If you don't have the EeePC packing box then you can check the Invoice of your EeePC. The EeePC serial number will be mentioned in your Invoice.
There is one last way you can find out your Computers manufacturing serial number.
This will only work if you have your original battery. Remove your battery. Under the battery you will find a sticker (hopefully as it is hidden inside, the number would not have disappeared with wear and tear).
