No satellite L855-B511 - how to activate the operating system Windows - no serial key


I had to replace the HDD on my L855-B511, I tried to create a recovery media to replace the HARD drive by using both DVD and USB sticks, but it didn't work because I think that the HARD disk has been corrupted.

There is no license sticker windows at the rear of the laptop or under the battery (only the windows logo 8), so I downloaded an app to retrieve the product key from the registry, but after reinstalling windows, I tried to turn it on, I discovered that the product key is not valid (tried the application on another machine and it gave me a product key different than that on the sticker).

is there a way I can reactivate windows without having to purchase a new license?


> is it possible I can reactivate windows without having to purchase a new license?

There is unfortunately no way to do it. In my opinion, your problem is clearly guaranteed service provider and the question should swap HARD drive for free. This model is fairly new, so I assume that the warranty is still valid. You could tell the guys to service this recovery media creation didn't work and ask if you can get a free recovery media.

If you want to fix on your path you must order the new recovery disc. This laptop model is available on the Middle East so I don't know if you can order it on but you can check it out.

    My PC running the 32-bit version or 64-bit Windows?

    Windows 7 64 bit comes in handy when you need to deal with at least 4 GB of RAM or more. Windows 7 32 bit can use up to 3.2 GB of RAM. Because the address space of memory is much larger for 64-bit Windows, this means that you need two times more memory than the 32-bit Windows to accomplish some of the same task, but you are able to do much more, you can have more apps open, do things like run a virus scan in the background it will affect the performance of your system. 64-bit Windows 7 is safer too, malicious code cannot easily infiltrate it, drivers are more reliable because they must be signed before it can work with 64 bit Windows 7.

    Regarding compatibility, you need device drivers 64-bit hardware devices, you may have. In addition, there is no 16-bit subsystem in Windows 7 64-bit, which means, your applications must be 32-bit only, not 16-bit Installer or programs uninstaller. Also, if you decide to switch to Windows 7 64 bit in the future, there is no way to upgrade from 32-bit Windows, clean install only.

    Hey Buddy,

    First of all I must say that it of not possible to download the operating system. It s just preinstalled on your laptop and you can find it on Toshiba Recovery disk as well.

    If you don t have a recovery disc, you can order one from Toshiba but I m not 100% sure if it of possible old Equium A200. Just check the online store:

    If you can t order it, ask a service provider authorized in your country. Maybe they have such a disc and can give you.

  • How to deal with operating system windows 8.1 and apps on usb device

    Hi, I have a laptop Lenovo G505. Windows 8 64-bit was preinstalled in it. Later, I upgraded to 8.1. Laptop is almost 9 months and still under warranty. Since a few days, built Lenovo solution Center alert this analysis of hardware detected failures in one or more devices. On suggestion of Lenovo, I ran hdtune pro app in my machine and it also detected 3 hard drive errors. As my machine is under warranty, Lenovo is ready to replace my hard drive with a new one. But they say that it is the responsibility of the customer to return the windows 8.1 operating system and install in the new drive and their liability is limited to the replacement of the hard disk only. I am not computer savvy and I request concerned to guide me how to deal with operating system windows 8.1 on external media like USB, DVD, and install in the new drive. I also installed a number of apps and paid games. Therefore, I would like to resume these games also files so that I need not buy again. Assistance in this regard is required.

    Hello Mohan,

    Thanks for posting your query in Microsoft Community Forum.

    I can of course understand the situation and will be happy to help with your query.

    Let me ask you;

    • You have the key product for Windows 8 or 8.1?

    You can create an installation media (DVD/USB) for Windows 8.1 and re-install when you want. However, in order to create an installation media for Windows 8.1, you need the product key. If you don't have the product key for Windows 8.1, you can not create installation media.

    You can create the installation media for Windows 8 by using the product key Windows 8 If you have. In this case, install you Windows 8 first and then go to Windows 8.1 through store.

    As far as your paid apps (purchased by store) are concerned, you should be able to install them as soon as you sign in with the same Microsoft Account where apps were purchased.

    You can see the steps indicated by Ronnie Vernon replied on 24 December2013, re - install paid apps.

    You can follow the steps below to create installation media.

    1. Run the program Windows 8.1 configuration or installation of Windows 8 (depending on the availability of the product key for the specific operating system.
    2. When you are prompted to run or save the file, choose run

    3. When you are prompted to enter a product key, enter the 25-character product key, that you received when you purchased Windows 8.1 (or Windows 8).

    4. When you are prompted to install Windows 8.1 (or Windows 8), select install by creating media and then click Next.

    5. Select the type of media you want to use: either a Flash DRIVE or a DVD.

    To create a USB flash drive

    1. Click on the USB flash drive.

    2. Plug the USB key into a USB port on your PC.

    3. When you are prompted, select the USB key that you want to use, and then click Next.

      If you have files on the USB flash drive, it will remove them.

    To create a DVD

    1. Click on the ISO file , and then select the location where to save the ISO file.

    2. Insert a blank recordable DVD into your DVD drive.

    3. Burn the ISO of the DVD file using Windows disc Image burner, or another program DVD burning.

    Note: Ensure that the USB or DVD key that you use has nothing else stored on it and has a sufficient free space to download the Windows 8.1 Installer: about 2.3 GB for the 64-bit version.

    You can also read the article below to create a USB stick recovery.

  • Satellite Pro A100 - how to activate the shortcut keyboard-support on Vista?

    Hello. I've recently updated my satellite pro a100-828 to windows vista, and things work well to a large extent with two exceptions:

    1. I can't figure out how to activate the shortcut keyboard-support: media-keys to the left and the fn keys do nothing. There seems to be no shortcut keyboard-utility for windows vista in the drivers * tion. So what to do?
    2. the standby electricity utility is not available, which is good because of the power saver new vista. Except that I can't dim the screen, so the battery does not last me too long. How can I do this?

    Thanks in advance
    Best regards
