Find product serial number

If I may ask; for Driver download, or because you are trying to obtain a Restoration Disk?

Or prove ownership?

Driver download I can help you with, without the Serial Number.

The Serial Number (S/N) should be on the Bottom of the laptop.
Usually very close to the Windows product key.

Just a start. Post back in a Comment.


(I know that Magic Jellybean Keyfinder can find the Windows product key, with their free version. Don't remember if it finds the computer serial number, though,

No sound winxp

Roy, Roy, Roy,..............if I've told you once, I've told you..............

..................Oh, were was I?

Oh yeah, I need the Product Number, and what Windows operating system you are using.

The Product Number can be found on the Bottom of the laptop, in a white Service Tag.
P/N = Product Number

[S/N = Serial Number
DO NOT post on a public worldwide forum such as this.
ONLY give to an authorized HP service provider ]

Windows XP Home? Windows XP Pro?
Windows Vista? What?

We will look together as to which Audio driver you need, if more than one is available. Then I will guide you in downloading AND installing the audio driver, step by step.

[Sometimes Windoze has a brain f@rt. Looses the address to the Driver.
Think of your harddrive as a Library, and the files on it as Books.
Loose the aisle the book is in, (Address), and you may not find it.

Driver: Small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device

Device in question is the Audio Chipset.
O/S wasn't stated ]

When i start the asks for hdd password i enter it and then it goes to a black screen saying windows is corrupt or missing and i don't have a recovery disc to do this anyhow and it is a second...

Is sounds serious. You will need to reload windows from scratch and format the disk.
If you have a windows COA (serial #) sticker under the laptop, with a serial number, you can borrow a Windows disc or download and burn a Windows disc to work with and use your serial to register it. But it needs to be the version named on that serial sticker.
After loading Windows go to Acer for all your drivers

How install windows 2000?

Just like any other Windows. That is to say, insert he Windows Installer CD and power up. Boot from the CD and follow the instructions. Answer some questions and supply the correct Serial Number and after two reboots you have Windows 2000.

I lost my Activation Product key. I need it for my activating my Windows Vista Starter. Please help me. Thanks.

There is two steps in installing and activation Windows.
First you need the Product Installation Key to install Windows.
After Windows is installed, Windows will requite Activation. When you boot up Windows will ask you to Activate your Windows program (you are given a 30 days to activate then Windows will lock you out).
You can activate Windows over the Internet or you can activate the Windows license using the phone. If you select the phone method you need to select your country and windows will display the phone number. Then follow the screen instructions.

Before you can install Internet Download Manager (IDM) you'll need to find the serial number that came with the software. IDM requires that you enter a unique serial number.
If you've lost your serial number, there is a way to find it as long as IDM is still installed. You might be able to find your Internet Download Manager serial number if you've uninstalled the program but only if the serial number information was left in the Windows Registry.
The Internet Download Manager serial number is actually more of a product key than a serial number but as with most software, the terms are usually used interchangeably.
The best way to find your Internet Download Manager serial number is with a product key finder program.

I would like to scratch-install the new WINDOWS 7 on the TOSHIBA P105-S6114. Is this okay? Are there any problems I may encounter?


ecommended Windows 7 Installation Method SelectionToshiba provides support for installing Windows 7 on laptops built since 2007. Depending on your model, Toshiba recommends using one of the following software tools as part of the Windows 7 installation process, to support ongoing use of Toshiba provided features and functionality:
  • Toshiba Upgrade Assistant for Windows 7, for upgrading from Windows Vista to Windows 7 on laptops made in 2009
  • Toshiba Software Installer for Windows 7, for performing a Custom Installation of Windows 7 ("clean install") on laptops made 2007-2009
Find your laptop's serial number on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop, note the second character in that serial number, then click on the matching link in the list below for instructions on Toshiba's recommended Windows 7 installation method for your model.
For all laptops made since January 1, 2007*
When upgrading from Windows Vista (not a Custom or "clean" Install)
  • if the second character of your laptop's serial number is 7 or 8, click here.
  • if the second character of your laptop's serial number is 9, click here.
When upgrading from Windows XP, or doing a Custom Install ("clean install") from any operating system
  • if the second character of your laptop's serial number is 7, 8, or 9, click here.
  • if the second character of your laptop's serial number is not 7, 8, or 9 then it was manufactured prior to 2007.*
* Installation of Windows 7 is not supported by Toshiba for laptops made prior to 2007.

Hope it helped.

I installed windows sp1 and my computer is not working. I want to reformat it but I need to install a new player. How do I do that? Thanks

insert your windows cd into the notebook and restart. It should give you a message like this:
Please press any key to start windows setup, or start windows installation. Or anything like that. Press any key and installatiomn will begin. In one point, the installer finds your existing windows installation and asks you if you want to repair or install a new windows. Do not do a repair, instead install it new. Then it asks you for your drive, where you want it installed. It then gives you the option to format, format quickly or leave your drive intact. Select format and off you go :-)
