  1. I have a laptop, it came with Windows and lots of other programs pre-installed. The laptop did not come with the product key written down. I've had it for about a year now and i feel it's time for a re-install. I have a Windows XP cd, i just need to find my product key before i start.

    Is there a setting in the registery with it written down?

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Download the free SIW programme from HERE

    When you run the programme just click on the operating system icon. Your product key will be shown part way down the list.

    If you click your start button, then settings, then control panel, then system, it should show your number in the system summary. If it doesn't then you can google for magic jellybean key finder.
