Product Key problem with notebook computer

I received this computer for Christmas and the Product Key information keeps popping up. I type in the Product Key number on the bottom of the computer, but when I get to the last digit it will not be accepted. I also tried every digit available to see, just in case. Now it's saying my computer will be inoperable if I do not put in the Product Key. NOT COOL! This computer was purchased from Best Buy. Acer Aspire 7720

Hmm, it's sound like you'll have to give microsoft a call to issue you a new key. They are usually very helpful.


You can also extend your trial (that's basically what your running without activation) by clicking on the start menu, searching for 'cmd', right click on cmd and click run as administrator, then click continue or accept, and type in:

slmgr -rearm

Hit enter. It will take a second, but your computer will reboot, and you will have another 30 days to activate. You can do this to a max of 120 days.

If you are running the original version of windows that came with the notebook pc, then it's on the bottom of the notebook pc (laptop).

If not, and you bought/received another version of windows, then it's on a sticker/disc sleeve or sticker inside the original package.

or just call microsoft and request one.

I need a 25 character product key for my microsoft licence

You may be able to find the product key for a full version in more than one location, depending on how it was obtained (CD/DVD, downloaded, subscription, or preinstalled by the computer manufacturer, system builder, or reseller). To find the product key for a full version, check the following locations:
  • Sticker on the CD case or other packaging.
  • Certificate of Authenticity.
  • Confirmation e-mail message that was received from an online purchase.
  • Sticker on the computer.
  • Documentation or user manual included with your computer.
If you cannot find your product key, you can obtain a new one. To obtain a new product key, contact Support. Find the Support telephone number for your area by running the Product Activation Wizard on your computer.

Request for product key keeps popping up on my laptop. I looked on the bottom of my laptop and found the product key, however, the message keeps popping up that the key is invalid. Where else could I look,...

Click on "Telephone Support" in that window. You must call Microsoft to validate this copy of Windows! No other way - short of purchasing another valid product key - they're usually arount $150.00+

Have typed ma product keybuh cant get access to ma desktop

If you are refering to the activation window of Vista Operating System, you need to enter the Product Key which should be available at the bottom of the Notebook and it should be of 25 digits in length and it contains both Alphabets and Numbers.
Make sure that you enter the correct Product Number without any confusion between Zeros and alphabets like 'O' etc...
If you are sure that the typed Product Key is correct and still you are unable to use Windows, I recommend you to reinstall Windows using the Recovery Partition by pressing the F11 Key at startup or using the Recovery Disks you might have created.
NOTE : Performing a System Recovery will erase all the data in the Notebook and take it back to factory default settings.
If you are currently located in US or Canada, you can contact Microsoft directly and get the copy of Windows in your Notebook activated by calling 1-866-530-6599 and informing them about the situation and provide them the required details.
Hope this information is useful...

First : NEVER post your key online !!!! then anyone can use it and activate it!!!!

Did you get the install CD's for Office? if not the Office you have is a trial and you have to buy it and get a key.

For windows change the key to the one on the bottom of the machine .

If you have Windows XP you can change it with this software:

If you have vista try this page:
