What do you mean it is gone? You can't find the sticker?

Yes, the sticker is gone, it was not the original windows installed on my computer. So it did not come stuck on to my tower. And i can tell that it was ripped off of the envelope with my XP cd. So I'm asking if there is a way to find the code because its already in the computer.

I don't think you can do that.

No - as far as I know its not possible to find the code in the Restistry - otherwise it wouldn't be very secure. You'll have to buy an upgrade copy, or phone up Microsoft about the problem.

This was given to me from someone at another forum when I was reformatting my HD, Don't know if it's legal or not but you can take a look at it:

Doesn't look very legal! But hey.

Interesting Computer - very external? Why?

I'm a musician and this past year I've been getting more involved in home recording.
