Hi,i currently have a dodgy copy of windows vista home premium on my laptop and it keeps asking for a product key,can you help and tell me where to get one,thank you.

If your PC came with Vista pre-installed, there should be a sticker somewhere on the case. The sticker is relatively small and rectangular. On most laptops, it is found on the bottom (Didn't specify laptop or desktop). If you upgraded to Vista from a previous Operating System, your product key should be included on the box or the instructional booklet.

What is the product key of windows XP?

Each key is unique.
It is contained on a sticker that should be attached to your comptuer. Laptops are found on the bottom, and towers usually along the side, but have been found on the bottoms, and tops.

You can find your installed Windows key using many free tools available to you.

I like the one from Piriform called SPECCY.
After you install it you can see your XP Key.

NOTE: Don't install the yahoo toolbar included with Speccy.
Just uncheck the box.

If you are just installing XP from a NEW holographic xp disc then you should have an XP Key Sticker on the package that the disc came in.
You need to remove the sticker and place it on your computer somewhere convenient.

Need product key code for windows vista cant get to windows on laptop

They key will either be in the box the disk came in or on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop. If you ruined that sticker because they put it in a place that gets ruined easily, then you are screwed.

Downgrading vista to xp

Now you need to find a Windows XP install disk that can match the licence number printed on the sticker at the back of the laptop and reinstall XP using your serial key.
You will have to download and install also the XP drivers, you find them on manufacturer website.

See links below on reinstalling XP on a Vista system:

If the laptop was bought as new, the message can be a bogus , coming from some kind of virus. It is rare that a seller distibute a laptop with non genuine software.

To know if you own a windows valid licence check if there is Windows licence sticker on the bottom side of the laptop.
If you have no sticker with Vista serial, like this one (they are for XP yours must be for Vista):


Then installed Windows is probably a pirate copy.

The fact that the problem has gone undetected for some times may be normal, as Microsoft controls genuinity only when you do certain updates.

How to install XP in toshiba Satellite L45-S7423 laptop

You cannot uninstall Windows Vista, but you can reinstall your previous operating system, which then replaces Windows Vista. To reinstall your old operating system, you must have the original installation disc. Back up your programs and files, insert the installation disc into your computer, and then reinstall the old operating system. To regain the hard disk space used by Windows Vista, reformat the disk during the reinstallation process. After reinstalling your previous operating system, reinstall your programs and files.
