Question about Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional for PC

4 Answers

I have a properly licensed copy of Win 2000 pro on my desktop computer. I have misplaced the CD Key. I think it washed away in an unfortunate aquarium accident. I am upgrading the MB, CPU and video and fully expect to need to reload Win 2000 but can't without the key.

Hello there bfhaynes.

Here's your GEEK-steer ...

There are three potential sources for your key code:

  1. You should be able to locate the product key code on your Win 2000 installation disk/sleeve, or on the PC case itself.
  2. If you've lost your disk/sleeve, you can contact Microsoft support services [800-MICROSOFT (642-7676)] for a no-charge resolution.
  3. HOWEVER, if as it sounds, that your Win 2000 is currently installed on a functioning PC, there are many software applets that can present the key code to you, but I'll recommend "Belarc Advisor". Download/install and/or on-line run it, then after it process, it will display its report in your default web-browser. You'll then find your key code in the "Software Licenses" section.
Good luck, and thanks in advance for posting back ...

If you registered your copy of windows thru Microsoft then they will have the information on file. You can contact them and get the key for your windows 2000. If you cannot get it from them there are programs available to view the operating system key...but not from this site.

Where can i find the cd key of xp pro sp2


If it is a PC desktop manufactured by a company like Dell for example you should be able to find the CD Key on a Genuine Microsoft sticker placed somewhere on the side of the case or tower of the computer.

Should look something like this:

Hi there, i am new to this site & hope you can help, i have been given windows xp pro + service pack 2 but have no installation code to install whith, i have tryd the unnatended folder but the pro key...


The 25 digit code actually comes with the cd and is not on the cd but is a yellow label that was in the box when it was purchased.
I would go back to the person who gave it to you and ask them for that label. My guess is the disk came with a computer that has the windows sticker on the side and that is why you do not have the license number.
Unfortunately the only way to get a legal license is to buy it.

Hello,

Your license is still valid but you have to call Microsoft ( 1-800-805-4440) and provide them your product id so that they can generate the a new windows XP key for you or may be they will offer you Windows 7. Anyhow, you do not have to buy a new Windows XP key.

Need A product key


Hello,
Unfortunately, Fixya does not provide crack passwords for such softwares as it is illegal. Aside from the fact that it is indeed against the law to obtain pirated keys, it also takes away the privilege of having software security updates.
It is best if you can purchase the license for the said software to avoid hassles.

Windows 7 revert back to Win XP


I think that what's important is license key of your Win XP, the installer for Win XP can be downloaded from any download site now a days. If you have a friend or know someone who has the Win XP installer, you can barrow it from them or have it copied on another disc. Then use the license key that you have from your previous operating system (Win XP).

You must also make sure that the installer that you will be using is the same version that you used to have before installing Win 7. I hope this one helped in a way.

Does any one have a serial key for Acrobat 8 pro that works?


Hello,
Unfortunately, Fixya does not provide crack license keys. Installing one means that you are taking away the right for your computers to be safe. Product updates, most especially the security patches will not be installed if you are using a crack key. One more thing, it is ILLEGAL.

Is it find the product key from windows xp cd?


If the hard drive is still alive, you can use a Key generator or "Key gen" on the old hard drive, it will search for all installed versions of windows and give the key that it was registered to. Magic Jellybean key finder is a great free program.
