    On the underside of the laptop it has a sticker that says "Windows Vista Home Basic OEM something.
    Yet when booting up, it shows the obvious W7 logo

    The key can be retrieved if it is unknown. A little utility that I use is called ProduKey.

    That Product Key is for Windows Vista. Windows 7 will or should have a different key.

    Ok, I should of thought of this earlier, but this laptop has a tiny harddrive capacity. 49.7GB's USED. 28.7 GB's FREE.
    79 gb harddrive. I don't know what the person uses it for so I think I best leave it as is, thanks.:)
