XP validation key

  Windsor 10:53 19 Dec 07

I recently had to re-install Windows XP and was told I needed a new validation key, which I got OK. But before I could write it down it had gone.
Can anyone tell me where to find it in case I ever have to re-install again.

It should be on a COA sticker on the side of your computer with the Keycode on it.Or like fruit Bat says SIW will show it.

Down load and run either Belarc advisor it will list all your serials numbers of everthing installed on your computer. Or downlaod and run the Magic Jelly Bean keyfinder. Just type magic jelly bean keyfinder into Google

To determine the Windows product ID on your computer:

On the task bar, click the Start button.

Right-click My Computer.

On the context menu, click Properties.

On the General tab, examine the number that is listed under Registered to:

System administrators may find it useful to check the product ID through the Registry Editor.

The registry path is:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\ CurrentVersion\ProductId
