I need help activating my windows 8.1 laptop RRS feed

  • Question

  • My Computer caught a virus earlier this year and I recently got it repaired. I need to reactivate my laptop, with my product id, cause every time I try to do the online activation, it always says try again later. Then I tried the product id in the pc info page. I try to type it but it says certain characters aren't allowed to be used as a product id. Please help!!!

  • Maybe I worded it wrong. I would like to find out my product key. Perhaps an email or its on my computer somewhere. Also I don't have a windows cd

  • You did not word the question wrong, you just posted in the wrong area.
