The sticker key on the back of my laptop produckt was half torn and I lost the installation CD. My laptop has is broken, replaced the hard drive and used a borrowed product key.

Call the manufacturer of your computer tell them the exact situation.

1. ask if they can help you with unreadable product key.
2. ask for a set of recovery disks. The cost of a set is minimal, and it is worth the money spent.
3. at the same time, ask a technician to learn you how to access the recovery Partition from your computer and how to make the system using the partition recovery.

#2 and #3 methods do NOT require the use of product key. ****

  • I need to reinstall Windows Vista but the sticker on the laptop product key is not readable.

    My partner has an Acer laptop running Windows Vista Basic 32-bit. He needs a complete reinstallation of Windows because there a lot of problems now. The problem is the sticker of the product key on the laptop is often illegible. I tried to use the Magic Jelly Bean finder key to resolve this issue, but the key does not match what the letters which are readable on the sticker. I tried this on my own laptop and had the same problem (sticker key did not key on the computer). Neither laptops have had Windows reinstalled before. I learned that the keys posted by Magic Jelly Bean are in fact license keys of Volume factory installed by the OEM rather than found on the stickers product keys and Volume license keys cannot be used to reinstall Windows.

    His cell phone doesn't have a recovery disk or a recovery partition, but even if she did, given its current state, a complete reinstallation is what it takes. Her cell phone is not come with a Windows Installation DVD, either, but we can borrow one from a friend who owns a disk with the same version of Windows as his laptop and I know that works perfectly. We just need a way to recover the product key that was on the sticker. We are not ready to buy a new copy of Windows that we already have a license (through the purchase of the laptop) key.

    PS I remember that I helped my father after reinstall Windows XP. We tried both the key on the sticker of his PC and the one that we found on the PC itself (Volume key). In the end, only the key on the sticker has worked. This confirms that a Volume license key cannot be used to reinstall Windows.

    recovery discs are brand and the specific model

    and product key finder programs will not help you find product keys that you can use vista preinstalled in these circumstances

    to reinstall vista use either disk or recovery partition recovery manufacturer, since they do not normally require an input key product on your part

    The manufacturer must provide a way to reinstal vista or by disk or a recovery Partition

  • The sticker on my laptop product key is worn, but I can still do a number above the code bar. Can I still get my product key?

    I have an old laptop that took Vista Home Basic (32 bit) and I need to reinstall Vista but the sticker on the laptop is slightly worn I can't see the product key. There are other numbers, I can make out on the sticker, however. What I need to know, is if it's possible for me to get the product key? Also, I might also want to install XP SP3 instead, because it uses less resources, and I heard that you can use the Vista key to activate XP, I'd be able to do?

    Hello

    You can contact your computer manufacturer and ask them to send you a set of recovery disks.

    They should do this for a small fee.

    "How to replace Microsoft software or hardware, order service packs and replace product manuals.

    http://support.Microsoft.com/kb/326246

    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 Vista on how you purchased 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.

    And if you do not score a manufacturer of recovery on your hard drive, you should be able to make your own recovery from her disks to reinstall the operating system.

    Go to programs > name of the manufacturer of your computer > then their system or recovery tools software topics for them, depending on how it is formulated.

    If you can't find any reference to it, contact the manufacturer for advice on how to make these recovery disks.

    The methods above resettlement generally do not require 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.

    Windows 7 is pre-installed on my computer, How can I find the product key?

    The product key is located on the COA sticker attached to the bottom of your laptop or in the battery compartment. In rare cases it can be found also in the memory compartment. For systems of the Tower, look at the top or the side of the system unit. It looks like the following:

    If the certificate of authenticity (COA) label is damaged or letters or not readable, you will need to consider the following options:

    • Use a digital camera to capture an image of the COA and enlarge him on your computer.
    • If the COA sticker is damaged, you must use the recovery partition to reinstall Windows 7, it will be exempt from the need to use the product key to activate your installation of Windows 7.
    • If your recovery partition is not available or damaged, you must contact the manufacturer of your computer, and requires only a defined recovery disk you can use to reinstall Windows 7. They could practice a small shipping and handling. This will exempt the need to also use the product key.
    • If none of the above works or is not available, then its best you buy a new license Windows 10 or Windows 7:

    Buy Windows 10 family/professional edition

    You can find software OEM System Builder of dozens of online merchants. The current price for OEM Windows 7 Professional Newegg, for example, is $ 140. When I checked a few minutes ago, Amazon offered packages OEM Windows 7 Professional from several vendors at prices ranging from $ 101 to $ 150. When I checked earlier, a package specifically designed for reconditioned PCs cost only $ 50 for a 64-bit copy.

    There is no technical limitation to prevent you from using OEM software on your computer, although this software only works for a clean install, not an upgrade. In the past, Microsoft has been remarkably inconsistent in his advice to clients on the question of whether this practice is allowed. (See "is allowed to use Windows OEM on your own PC? Don't ask Microsoft. »)

  • Windows 7, re - install on the PC Toshiba laptop - product key

    Original title: Bob Metzner

    I have an older Toshiba laptop that came with a version of the OEM of Windows 7 and I want to do a restore of the entire system from scratch, which means that I need an activation key.

    The problem is, the Windows sticker on the bottom is so worn OUT, I can't read, but I'm sure it's licensed.  Y at - it a utility or a query I can run that will recover the activation of its installed Windows 7 key?

    I am retired and would not spend $100 to buy another license when I already have one and just can not read.

    Thank you.

  • Is it possible that I can use at the back of my machine product keys to activate a Windows XP SP3 as a copy authentic?

    real operating system

    I bought 8 computers to set up an Internet Café which is windows xp professional authentic, one day, I was attacked by a power serge that crashed all my hard drives in the computers and had nothing to recovery... I replaced all the hard drives and surprisingly enough my original CD with the real BONES has a lot of scratches and can install the operating system. The version I have is only SP3 and is not authentic. I always authentic labels with product keys of the defective operating system stuck in each of the computers. Is it possible that I can use the product keys for SP3 as a copy is authentic?

    You need get the good one, the CORRESPONDENT XP installation CD.

    So, if all COA stickers indicate an OEM version of Windows XP Pro (MS level does not count), so if you can get a real GENERIC OEM Windows XP Pro installation CD (MS level does not count), simply use the product key on the COA sticker.
    You say that the version available is "not true." Because I don't know what you have, with the exception because it is not a true generic OEM XP Pro installation CD, I recommend that you do NOT use. Although hard to find, there are reputable dealers who sell this authentic CD. You can also borrow one from someone you know. Alternatively download the file .iso for him, but ONLY if YOU KNOW WHAT YOU DO! Fortunately there are values of hash MD5 and SHA1, published online to verify that you have the right pair. But if you don't know what you're doing, you could very well end with something that's plagued malware!

    New computers coming often pre-installed with Windows 7 have what is called a recovery partition. This is used to reinstall an operating system in the case of a system failure. To access it, you need to start when you start your computer by pressing a function key. This can be either F1, F2, F9, F10, F11, F12 key DEL or tab. See the manual that came with your PC for instructions on how to reinstall Windows.

    If your recovery partition is not available or damaged, you must contact the manufacturer of your computer, and request that a defined recovery disk you can use to reinstall Windows 7. They could practice a small shipping and handling.

    This is how the recovery partition is accessible to most popular brands...

    For Dell, press CTRL + F11 directly after switching on the device

    For HP, press F11 directly after switching on the device

    For LG, press F11 directly after switching on the device
