How to find part number for a machine?

by Lenovo Staff on ‎01-19-2012 01:32 AM (10,100 Views)


Sometimes we do not wish to send our machine into service centre and would like to fix the system ourselves, i.e. keyboard. 


There are so many different parts for different type of machines. How do i know the right part number for a machine?


You may download Hardware Maintenance Manual (HMM) from Lenovo Support Site


  • If you're using the support site for the first time, you'll be prompted to insert some keywords, product numbers of machine type models into Quick Path.
  • Key in the machine type model (MTM) of the unit you want to find the parts for, for instance, 7660-14A.

  • Click on the Hardware Maitnenace Manual Index - ThinkPad.

  • Click on the link will eventually lead you to HMM pdf.

But what if the support page does not recognize the Lenovo computer number?  I just bought a used model G550-2958 in almost pristine condition, but the cover plate on the optical drive is missing.  I want to find the number for the whole drive so I can start searching to replace the cover plate or the whole drive.  I have tried three attempts and still get no recognition of the model number.  Any ideas?
