check that window key is correct RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a Toshiba laptop of around 2011  with genuine  window 7

    After all this years of using now I want to format my laptop &  reinstall the window 7 

    Unfortunately the product key is lost 

    & somehow I get the product key of my window with the help of a software

    But now I want to check that the product is original  & correct so that I can format & reinstall the window so I don't have to purchase a new one

  • You'll need to obtain the appropriate Toshiba Recovery Media which does not require typing in a Windows 7 product key.  The product key you found using third-party software is likely the one-time product key used at the factory to install Windows 7 using a master image and will be of no use to you.
