I just purchased a laptop with windows 7.The program was pre installed. I was going to activate the program and went right by the production key. There is no cd to look at the number. How do I get that number so I can activate?

Need to get a new or retrieve a production key for microsoft 7

If you bought a computer with Windows preinstalled there should be a COA sticker somewhere on your computer. It will say what version of Windows you have and will alos have a 25 alphanumeric code on it - that is your product key. If it's not on your computer look in your paperwork or on any CD/DVD cases that were included with the computer.
