Lost Windows 7 product key

I had to re-install Windows 7 on my B570. I have lost my product key. There is no sticker anywhere on the laptop with the key anywhere. Is there anyway I can get it back? Or am I going to have to buy another key?

 

Thanks

Hi jayncc1701 and welcome to the community,

 

Try taking out the battery and looking in the compartment, it should be in there.

Re: Lost Windows 7 product key

Well, if that's the case then yes, you will have to come up with a new key, Manufacturers  only give one key per computer.

 

You could contact service and get a set of restore discs, they will come pre-activated, you won't need a key.
