how to change product key RRS feed

  • Question

  • i bought my laptop from Dell that came with Windows.

    My friend borrowed it and formatted it and now it tells me that it is not gunuine, counterfieted

    i have the original key, the sticker is on the bottom of the laptop.

    how do I change the key in Windows so that it recongnizes my bought version?

    I tried to run validation - but it says it is already validated. But still gives me messages on counterfeiting.


    pls help thanks
