A guy gave me a laptop to repair, and his windows product key sticker is no-where to be found on the case. He says he does not have the original disks, so no help there. Is it possible to retrieve the key from the harddrive, and how pls?
Thanks

Slave the HDD to a working computer and run ProduKey. Browse to the slaved HDD's windows directory and viola.
