  • Hello no contribution,

      If your Windows will expire in 30 days and you don't have a Product Key, you will need to obtain a Valid Product Key to continue using Windows.

      a) If you received your Windows Pre-Installed with a computer, please look for a Sticker (called a COA Sticker) on the side or bottom of the computer. It will contain the Product Key and list what version of Windows that key is good for.

      b) If you bought your windows seperatly from a computer, please look on or inside the packaging that Windows CD/DVD came in.  There should either be a sticker or a card that contains the Product Key

      c) If you received your Windows in some other manor and it did not come with a Product Key, you will need to purchase a Genuine copy of Windows (from a Trusted Retailer). You could even purchase the Windows from the Microsoft Store at http://store.microsoft.com

    Hope that helps,
