Solved!

Can serial numbers be duplicated

HP Notebook
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Have discovered that a care plan warranty was in place for my laptop between 2011 and 2014. However I purchased the laptop in 2015 as new from a national store in UK. What are the chances of serial numbers for two laptops to be the same, especially years apart?

Zero. What model laptop is this? Likely did not exist in 2011.

Showing as HP Notebook with Product number  P0U71EA#ABU.

 

What would explain the expired warranty showing for the laptop?

 

Have concerns as company was fined in 2002 for selling old pcs as new.

 

Thanks

15-ac152sa is the model number. Intel 4th gen processor was not introduced until late 2013 at the earliest. So it could not have had a warranty in 2011, but I also do not believe it is a new laptop.
