Hi Shankly,

As Roy explained, when you do a Factory restore you don't need a activation key.
You can launch the Factory restore from BIOS.
It will format the C: drive (everything will be erased) and load an image from the restore partition.
Did the laptop came with win 7 or win 8.1?
If it came with win 7 you should also have a COA key stick (look under the battery) if you decide to install win 7 (clean install).
