  • Hello chukicay,

    It's not on the Certificate of Authenticity (CoA) affixed to the computer (if an OEM installation)?

    Did you lose the retail package?  If you have a retail license, it's printed on a yellow-orange Proof of License sticker affixed to the last page of the heavy plastic-coated paperboard CD holder folder that's inside the retail package.

    If all else fails, you can try a keyfinder utility such as the Magical Jellybean Keyfinder or Belarc Advisor.
