How to recover a corrupted Windows Vista serial key?

I bought a license of Windows Vista with my Toshiba Satellite A300 computer laptop on July 2009, but the ticket where the serial key is printed under the laptop has been damaged by heat and it displays more information on the license or the serial key. Unfortenately I rebooted the computer on a new version of Vista that is demo lasts only 30 days. What I learned from some forums, miscrosoft team could get the authentic series keys with fees of $10, is it possible, and if it is how to do it?

How to get a replacement product key

If the software is preinstalled on your computer, contact your computer manufacturer to obtain a replacement product key (normally, they don't do that).


You can ask Toshiba to send you a set of recovery discs for your laptop model to reinstall the operating system to how it was when new.

And if you have never received a recovery disk when you bought your computer, there should be a recovery Partition on the hard drive to reinstall the operating system back to the way in which you bought your computer.

The recovery process can be started by pressing a particular combination of the key or keys at startup. (Power on / start)

Maybe it's F10, F11, Alt + F10, etc., depending on the manufacturer.

Ask them to the proper key sequence.

With Toshiba, you press 0 (zero) at the start and follow the prompts. but install another operating system could destroy the recovery Partition.

None of these methods of resettlement requires normally allows you to provide a product key during Installation, the recovery process uses the Installation product key factory to activate automatically during the resettlement process.

See you soon.
