Re: I lose my Hp530 products key
The product key for Vista is normally on a sticker on the side of the machine if it was supplied pre-loaded, or on the certificate of authenticity if you bought Vista separately. Microsoft do not issue duplicate product keys - if you've lost it, and you need to reinstall, your only legal solution is to buy another license and another key.

Try hitting the "Windows" key on your keyboard to bring it out of sleep mode. The "Windows" key is generally found on the bottom row of the keyboard, near the Alt and Ctrl keys, and it has no letters on it, just the Windows logo. That key brings my Windows Vista machines out of sleep mode when other keys won't.
As for the power button, anytime you need to force a computer to turn off, you can press and hold the power button to do so. Usually, you need to hold the power button for 5-10 seconds and it will shut down. Use this option with caution, as it turns the computer off without running through the shutdown process and can cause you to lose data.

If this is an upgraded system it may not be the correct key on the computer sticker. or if someone has upgraded this computer with an unlicenced (cracked) copy the product key may or may not work.
Contact Microsoft and have another product key issued in the event that you cannot determine your current product key. This is also something you may need to do when you upgrade Windows XP from one version to another. For example, you may need another product key issued when upgrading from Home Edition to Media Player Edition.
