The number at the back is belongs to the Operating System itself Not for word. If you purchase is bundled check with your reseller If its full version or trial. even if trial reseller should provide the Key. Also you can contact to Microsoft to verify.

Good Luck

I have lost my certificate of authenticity of dell optiplex 745


A free program called SIW windows will show you your present key by starting it then going to the License Option on the left side of the screen. The program also tells you everything else you need to know and then some.

Here is a download link for SIW from Cnet.http://download.cnet.com/SIW/3000-2094_4-10326678.html

Hope it helps. Dale

You need to run an anti-virus program. this is most commonly someone trying to get your password for face book using a Trojan of some sorts. looks like you been browser hijacked. AVG is the best free anti-virus software in my opinion. if you get any error trying to download it it is most certainly a virus. as most virus's prevent you from downloading software that will remove it.

I have an Acer Aspire x1700 and it will not reboot, I cannot locate the reboot disk. How can you help?


Yuo need a lot of try and error to be successful.
First your OS and the BOOT disk that comes with your machine.But if you dont had the CD you need to buy and download it.
Store like Bestbuy,CompUSA,etc.. sell this CD,s or go to this LINK where you can buy it online and download it, choose your OS and any other specs about your System.
After all you need to BURN the files in a blank CD or order for mail shipment.

Then we going to BOOT the system id the CD drive.

To rebuild your hard drive, do the following:
  1. Power up your Acer system.
  2. When prompted (after memory testing completes), press CTRL + ALT + ESC to enter CMOS setup.
  3. At the CMOS Setup screen select Advanced BIOS Features
  4. Verify the Boot Options Sequence is set to the following order:
    1st [CD-ROM]
    2nd [Floppy Disk]
    3rd [Hard Disk]
  5. Insert the Acer System CD, DISK 1 in your CD-ROM drive.
  6. Press F10 to exit and save. When prompted, Do you want to save CMOS data?, select [Yes], then press ENTER.
  7. The system will reboot from the CD-ROM. After booting from the CD-ROM, you will see the Acer Hard Drive Rebuild options displayed.

    Note: Use your mouse for choice selections during the HDD recovery process. The mouse will respond slowly during this procedure, DO NOT press the Enter key. Pressing the Enter key will cause the HDD recovery process to terminate.
  8. Select HDD Full Rebuild and follow the on-screen instructions.
  9. When prompted to insert Acer Recovery CD, DISK 2, wait for the CD-ROM to eject DISK 1.
  10. Close the CD-ROM tray and click OK. The system will continue to rebuild the hard drive back to factory load.
After being prompted to remove disk and restart system the unit will load system software and hardware. During this process the system will reboot several times.
Your Microsoft Certificate of Authenticity (COA) ID number will automatically be entered for you. Should you need this number for any reason, look for your Microsoft Certificate of Authenticity (COA) ID number on the cover of your system.

It wont take cd ey off


visit this microsoft link for support on this.
They will give you an alternate string of characters in lieu of the actual product key - provided your tower has a COA sticker (certificate of authenticity).
This call will be free and you can activate windows and never mind about the old key.

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.

Product key


You wont find a Microsoft Office product key on the back of your PC< this key will most likely on the original packaging your Office pack came with. The key on the back of your machine would be for your Operating System.

Product key not accepted


Hello Zamis,

Where did you receive the product key to enter for microsoft office? Did this come with the software that you brought seperately from the PC? The Product Key that is attached to the PC that may be on the back or side of the PC is most likely the product key for the windows operating system. Unless otherwise says Office XP, 2003, 2007 on it.
