It's a 24 inch desk top monitor. How do I vfind out the model?

Technician's Assistant: The Laptop Technician will be able to walk you through that. Anything else you want the Computer Expert to know before I connect you?

Yes. I was also told that since I had Microsoft office on my other computer, I could ask for a transfer to this computer. How do I that if I can?
