The COA code has rubbed off from the label on the bottom of my laptop. Can I find the number somewhere within the laptop so that I can make a note of it before something happens where I will need it. Thanks in advance! :thumbup2:

Some manufacturers will place a second product key in the battery compartment.

 

But you can use Belarc Advisor to find the product key.

I used program Product Key Finder to retrieve and activate the Windows product key. I've entered the 25 digit key and windows throws up this activation windows: a problem occurred when windows tried to activate error code 0xc004f063.

The following information was found for this error:
Code:
0xc004f063
Description:
The software licensing service reported that the computer BIOS is missing a required license.

Any thoughts on this please.

Time to use the automated phone activation service.  If you keep telling it that you want to speak to a representative you can get hold of a person.
