Belarc Advisor will tell you what the key is, plus more about your system.
Belarc Advisor - Free Personal PC Audit

This is good information to print out, just incase you need OS specs that you can't remember.

Again I say:
Quote:
There is a small program called, KeyFinder 2.0
all you have to do is GOOGLE Keyfinder 2.0
It will give your the KEY you used to install with...
and It is SAFE ALSO.

I didn't use a cd key to install. I thought I could insert it at the activation screen. That's why I can't use keyfinder... But I did use a key on previous activations and that worked fine, but now when I go on the Ms site it gives me a random one, it didn't used to before.

Even if it is auto inserted for you. the keyfinder will find the key.

Well if you used a KEY previously then use it now. You say one thing then say another.
To be honest now it seems that you are trying to find out how to ILLEGALLY activate your installed OS. 7100 RC.

but. I can't find the cd key. I didn't insert it at installation because i thought i could do it now. which aparently i can but i dont know where to find it. I have been going to the same page all along and it used to display my cd key when i logged on but it changes when i refresh.

I used this page twice previously and i'm sure it gave me the same cd key (what i thought was mine) and it worked fine. but now its just displaying random ones as i said. I do not have the original one wrote down as i threw it away after the first install.

I wouldn't be talking about doing illegal activity here on the forum or unless you want to be banned, so you should edit your post before the staff sees it.

Ok will you answer the question now? this is just getting annoying. I'm not going to reinstall again after everything is working. But I cant activate so I have 11 days to use the PC. what then? reinstall because microsoft stopped me from entering my key at a later, more convinient date??

it finds whichever cdkey i put into the change product key page. which would be useful but i already tried like 5 ones from the link in the previous page. I don't understand why its giving me different ones. if you think i am making that up then i can screen shot it. but i think its supposed to do that in which case these keys should work. i will try using safe mode with networking later today (when i wake up).
