Post Need my Key
On a laptop bought about 2 yrs ago or more. (Dell) How can you reload W7 if the sticker is worn?
No receipt of course.

...and I dun forgot what it was. :think:

anyways...my bad...it's my Toshiba laptop, not the Dell. And I got it. Just hit F8 on reboot and follow the recovery instructions. It reloaded Windows to "out of the box" specs.
And all the bloated Best Buy, Norton and Toshiba SW to boot. meh. But I wiped all that crap out.
Quite simple and quick but it took hours for Windows update..SP1 etc.

Dam thing rebooted to reconfigure exactly 7 times while reinstalling I might ad......
