Windows 8 product key RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have the OEM system builders version of windows 8, 64 bit which I purchased through NEW EGG.  I have built a new system and cannot get the windows 8 product key to work.  It keeps asking me to check the code and try again.  Any thoughts?  Btw I did reuse an old motherboard and CPU in this new build other than that everything is new.

  • When typing in the product key, make sure you are not confusing an 8 for a B or a O for a Q.  Using a magnifying glass would be useful in ascertaining the correct letters and numbers.
