  • Hello 47johnnyj,

    Look on the bottom of the laptop, is there a certificate of Authenticity (CoA) for Windows?  If so, tell us the brand name on the CoA (should match the brand name of the laptop) as well as the version and edition of Windows.  Don't post the product key.

    If there is no CoA, tell us that, too.
