  • If your computer is "working" .... install either "Speccy" or "Belarc Advisor" .... both can create a report that will show your MS Install key for Windows.  I save a copy of the report as a pdf on a drive not located on that computer as well a paper copy of the report.

    There are lots of "Microsoft keys". For which software - Windows operating system (Windows Home Server, Windows 7, 8, 8.1?) or Microsoft Office or something else?

    If you don't have a sticker, and the key is not embedded in the Bios like for Windows 8.x on some more recent machines (in which you do not have access to the key) you have basically no license any more and are not entitled to use the software.

    Best greetings from Germany
