Sticker ripped/damage RRS feed

  • Question


    I had to restore windows from scratch on my laptop, but now I see the product key sticker had partially torn and I'm missing the last 3 characters of the XP Product Key... Does Microsoft have some way to recover those last 3 characters? Obviously the vast majority of the key is there, I'm sure there can't be that many, if any, other copies with the same characters all the way accross.

  • Contact the manufacturer of the laptop and explain the problem.  They are responsible for OEM software.
