Ebok is still being judged by the masses


Default product key?

Where do you find the product key in the registry? Sister-in-law wants to do a quick restore on her Compaq 5360, she has disc, but no key, bought it used. Or, suggestions on how to get rid of the Compaq stuff and just install WIN98. Any and all help needed. Thanks

isn't there a product key on the computer case, perhaps in the back... alot of name brand computers have it on the case.


try this.. its been awhile since I checked.
Click Start, then run, then type regedit.
then browse through to this point and look for a productid
(i think there was two numbers there, ignore the one with the OEM listed in it, its the other you want)

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion

Most important!! Do not delete anything in your registry as this could cause you problems.(Unless you're comfortable with this procedure)

Hope this helps

If i'm wrong, i'm sure someone here can point you to the right spot.

Exclamation

For the amount of time it took you to type in your request, a quick search on the good old internet would have been more fruitful!
