    My father bought me a laptop about a year ago, and i never entered a product
    key, i didnt know that i had too. i have since moved, and lost my box that
    the laptop came in. How do i get a product key without having to pay for one?

    The Vista product key has nothing to do with Microsoft Office. The product
    key for a laptop is normally found on the bottom of the laptop.

    Usually with preinstalled version of win the product key is on a label
    afixed to the underside of the Laptop, which clearly states Windows Key
    You must have activated vista, otherwise you couldnt have continued to use
    it for more than a short while.
    If you are now being prompted to enter a product Key, something else is
    going on with your system

    Hi Jen

    There is yet another way other than looking into the affixed label.
    'Product Key' could also be available in the windows registry. But, i
    believe its in encryted form. So, you can use the Product Key finder to get
    this.
