  • If Windows 7 Professional came preinstalled on your laptop, all you need to do is perform a system recovery per the computer manufacturer's recommended procedure and the product key will not even be required.

    If you use the Recovery disk from the manufacturer for the reinstall, you should not need the Key.
    Your COA Key should be on a sticker on the machine's case (or inside the battery compartment, if it came with the Win7 Pro installed.
    You can recover the current Key from the install using  Belarc Adviser (www.belarc.com ) – but it may be the OEM’s Key which will only work with their recovery disks.
