If XP was originally loaded on this laptop by the manufacturer, there will usually be a sticker on the bottom of the laptop. It will state the Windows Version and the Product Key (long series of letters and numbers). If you have upgraded from a previous version (such as 98) then it won't do you any good. Unfortunately, if you have lost the jacket that your XP CD came in there isn't much hope that you can find it. The key is not included anywhere on the CD so trying to search for it on another computer will be useless.
Does this look like an OldGrumpyBastard or what?
