Lenovo G580 - where to order original sticker?

Q: Lenovo G580 - where to order original sticker?

Hi all,is there a way to order new original sticker for Lenovo G580 (like this one on picture)?I have new, very good G580 laptop (model 20150) and I am very satisfied. I replaced the CPU and put the new i7 3610QM in it, 8GB of RAM and SSD. The only thing that tore and which bothers me is sticker. xDIf anyone from Lenovo can help me with this, I would be grateful.

A: Lenovo G580 - where to order original sticker?

Hi Wind,

Welcome to Lenovo Forums.

It really feels something amazing when people are concerned about stickers more than issue. I can honestly say that i haven't tried it. However if you asked me to guess I would suggest you to contact the nearest service center for futher assistance.

Hope this helps. Let us know how you get on.

Regards,
Shashi Kumar

My g580 ran out of battery while using it, and now it gets stuck on the lenovo logo. I tried a different hard drive which changed nothing, I've tested both hard drives on a different computer and they both work. However when I boot the laptop with no harddrive it will get past the logo go to a screen saying something about an unplugged cable then reset and get stuck on a blank screen.   If I plug in my windows recovery usb drive( and no harddrive) the the machine will boot normally and go to the windows installation screen. So any ideas on why a working harddrive would stop the system from booting? Also I've tried the whole taking out the battery unplugging it holding down the power key and then plugging it back in thing, did nothing.

Hello experts,

I tried automatic updating of my ie today, but it said that it was a pirate version. I just bought the computer and on the underneath of the computer is an original Windows XP Pro sticker. I am thinking the person I bought it from just used some dodgy version of XP and used his own verification number. Is there any way (withiout losing all my programs or having to re-install) that I can change the current version of XP with the number of my original number to verify my IE program.

If not, what are the implications for me. Must I buy another windows XP programme?

Thanks Marcus

You can perform a repair install and use the legal key at the prompt

Technically the breaking of the seal does void the warranty, but the final determination is with the service center.   If you are looking to get the charger port repaired than I would suggest you check with your local Best Buy to see if there are an authorized Lenovo Service Center.  If they are then bring the laptop in an explain how the seal got broken to one of their service techs.

Hello.

I have a Lenovo G580 with Windows 8. I have a weird problem with audio. If the default audio is set as internal speakers and I plug in my headphones the sound just keeps coming from the internal speakers. But if I set the headphones as default, I can switch between the speakers and headphones as I want and there is no problem if only I play music from my computer.

If I try to play something from my browser, however, the sound only comes from the internal speakers and connecting the headphones does nothing. Except (and this is where it gets weird) if I play something from my computer first using the headphones. Then I can play anything from the browser and hear it through the headphones as long as I don't plug them out. If I plug them out, the sound switches back to the internal speakers and trying to plug in the headphones again doesn't do anything. So I have to play something from my computer again with the headphones plugged in and then switch to my browser to again play everything through my headphones.

What's wrong with it? Any way to make it work as it should work?

It's working. Well no, I did everything and it didn't solve my problem. Any ideas?

Hi Puneet,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Forums.
 
We are really sorry to hear about the issue you are facing.
 
Firstly, Check BIOS? Sometimes a BIOS has fan speed controls.
 
This is normal as the game is running and full GPU is utilized, if the temp increases more than normal.  I suggest you to use the Laptop by placing it on a flat surface for good ventilation.
 
Please go through the below link to understand about Safe Temperature range for CPU?

Recently bought a new Lenovo G580 to replace my old decrepit Toshiba. It worked fine for a couple of days, but suddenly started BSOD-ing as I began to use the laptop more and more.

I have noticed it is more susceptible to BSOD-ing when I am running Bit Torrent. Although it seems to wait until it strikes, luring me into a false sense of security and then crippling me.

I ran BlueScreenView, as I have seen many people mention it on various forums, including this one, and the such and it gave me these results. Sorry if this is not the accepted way of throwing out these results, but I am unsure what I am doing.

Hi there all, Recently I got a Lenovo G580 (2189).Because I need WiDi (wireless display) options I bought a Intel Centrino Advanced-N6230 wireless card. After installing this hardware an error showed up at the startup: error 1802 ... unauthorized etc etc. I did not know about Lenovo - Bios and whitelisting hardware. Anyway this simple question remains.

A:Lenovo G580 replacing wirelesscard not succesful -...

Hello and welcome,
 
I'm more familiar with ThinkPads, so please double-check anything you read in this post...
 
The problem with the white list is that a wireless card has to have a Lenovo FRU number.  It isn't sufficient to be an Intel XYZ board, it has to be an XYZ with the firmware ( the PCI subsystem ID) modified for Lenovo.  Reputable vendors will list the FRU if the board will play nice with the white list.
 
Take a look at the hardware maintenance manual for the G580, page 102l.  It lists an Intel 6150NX with an FRU # of 20002543.
 
Lenovo G480, G485, G580, G585, G780 Hardware Maintenance Manual (English)
 
As I said, this isn't my field of expertise (if there is one...) but maybe this will at least get you started.

Just started happening this week.   It's stuck at the boot screen "lenovo".   I tried many different methods like removing battery, holding power button to reset, etc.  The *only* way to get it to boot is the remove memory card, and put it back.  Then it will boot up fine.     It might then boot fine for the rest of the day.  But then the next day (or after being shutdown for a while), it happens again so i have to remove memory card, put it back, etc.  What could be the problem here ?  I tried both memory slots.  So i don't think it's particular to one slot.

Hi,
My daughters laptop has me baffled. It started with a blank screen issue, which I solved with a system restore. (theres was nothing of importance on the hard drive) I did try taking the battery out and after replacing holding the start button for 30 seconds first.
All appeared fine untill I shut it down. There was a massive 186 windows updates to do, which was expected after rolling back so far...
The issue now is a I get this message on the screen "failure to configure updates, reverting changes. do not turn off you computer. I get stuck with this screen with no change, I even left it over night.
I haven't managed to find the safe boot option with this Win 8 machine, I tried the F8 key on start up but no joy.
Has anyone solved this problem before?
Thanks in advance

Hello, The Problem:Recently I installed Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS  to my HDD in UEFI mode. Soon I found out that I could not access the BIOS using F2, but F12 allowed selection of boot device. Reinstalling Windows, I found out that the boot menu still had the Ubuntu entry and I still could not access the BIOS. I searched on the web for a solution and before I could manage to find a proper one, I managed to delete both the ubuntu and windows boot manager boot entries, still locked out of bios. This time I could not boot into any OS, could not access bios using f2 nor access boot menu using f12.  The Solution:There was one last hope, during boot I noticed that PXE (Boot via ethernet option was still showing).Note: This solution requires you to update the BIOS. This is a very risky procedure, so proceed with caution. This will also probably void your warranty. If you can access boot menu (F12) and want to regain access to the BIOS (F2), boot into Windows 7. Install a bios update for your laptop (specifically for your laptop) available at The Lenovo Support Site. The oldest BIOS (probably for Windows 7) is preffered. If you donot have access to windows 7, perform step 2 and boot into the created ISO by creating a bootable CD or pendrive. Then goto step 11.If you can't access F12 and F2, cannot boot into OS, but can boot via Ethernet (there should be a message about trying Atheros Ethernet PXE Boot during startup), start from step 1.

I came across a solution on the internet, that works without having to update the BIOS if Ubuntu can be accessed. To fix it, boot into Ubuntu (should be installed on the system), start Terminal and type in the following commands:sudo grub-install
sudo efibootmgr -b 0 -BReboot and F2 should work. BIOS should be accessible through F12>Tab>Setup also. Ubuntu will boot no more but can probably be fixed.

hi sameerjha28,
Welcome to Lenovo Forums!
 
?
You can try doing this:
-Turn off the computer.
-Unplug AC Adapter and remove the battery.
- Hold the Power button Down for at least 10-15 seconds, Then try reconnecting the AC adapter only and leave the battery out, turn it ON and see if it will make any difference.
- If it powered on Try it with the battery and check if it would still turn on properly.
?
If the above steps did not work Try an external monitor and check if it works there.
 
I would suggest Contact Lenovo Technical Support for service if the steps above did not help.
 
?
Hope this helps,

Im not native english speaker, sry if u cant understand some parts. Ill try my best to make my message clear so eventual will come easier.

This problem occurs for quite some time, its rather calm since few weeks when I downloaded shitload of new drivers and some other lenovo stuff but might be just coincedence. Since this issue doesnt want to go away itself I have to do something about it. I can send it to Lenovo for free service anymore so Id like to ask some experts if theres something I can do to fix this issue.

Some info:
- occurs usually while typing or other stuff, but few times my laptop literally went nuts and flashed black screens few times a sec, no matter if i touched it or not

- its not overheating, i bought cooling pad and it didnt help much

- can happen just after turning laptop on and not happen during 10h+ session

Thank you in advance.

Work through these Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 which will uncover most problems. Report back results as there may be other steps indicated.

Why did you install all of these other drivers? Did you already have performance problems or just create them?

Do you have a System Restore point still available before this problem began?

What else have you installed? Please post back as screenshot of Control Panel's Programs and Features after maximizing the page, using the Snipping Tool from Start Menu: Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums - Windows 7 Forums

I bought my Lenovo G580 more than 3 years ago, and it came with Windows 8.
For a certain reason, my coworker installed on it windows 7.
I tried to restore it to the original image by using the Novo OneKey Rescue button next to the power button... but unfortunately it didn't work... when i press the Novo button, four (4) choices appear on the screen:
- Normal Setup
- BIOS Setup
- Boot Menu
- System Recovery
When i press "System Recovery", windows 7 starts normally without recovering anything...
Is there any way to restore my Laptop to the original factory software???
Thank you in advance...

Your One Key Recovery (OKR) button is working, but most likely the recovery partition that contained the necessary files was removed or destroyed during the install of Windows 7.You have a couple of options:1. Contact Lenovo Support by phone, ask if the recovery DVD's are still available and purchase them, it is a reasonable price...2. Purchase the retail DVD of Windows (7, 8.1 or 10) and perform a fresh install.3. Pick a Linux version you like - download and burn to DVD, then install from media.I personally use Windows 10 Pro and Linux Mint (Dual Boot) on my G580 with no hardware issues in either OS... Really like some of the applications that Linux has, and the fact that it is completely free to use.Good luck.CB

Hello All,
 
My Lenovo Laptop, Lenovo G580 Model 2189, was upgraded from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10. Up until then I had been using Lenovo Solutions Center (LSC) and the Backup utility within it.
 
Now post the upgrade the Backup option has disappeared from the LSC. I am running LSC Version 2.8. 
 
I upgraded to LSC 3.x after reading somewhere that I should do this if I have upgradred to Windows 10. Then the only option I got was the periodic hardware scan for problems. So I downgraded again to LSC 2.8.
 
Will LSC Backup work under Windows 10 ?
Is there a Windows 10 version of LSC I can download that does have the backup option ?
 
Thanks All
John.

Hi

I got a new Lenovo G580 laptop which did not come with any pre-installed OS. I installed Ubuntu in UEFI mode (I had not disabled UEFI/Secure Boot). Later I installed Windows 7. During installation it asked me to format the entire format as it did not recognize the GPT partition. Accordingly without thinking twice I erased the entire HDD and installed Windows 7. Now I am unable to enter into BIOS

Things I have tried:
Tried with F2, F1 and Delete keys while booting
Tried removing the battery and booting while pressing the above keys individually
Tried removing the battery and adapter, held the power button for 1 minute
Tried removing the battery and held the power button for 1 minute while the adapter was plugged in
Tried pressing F12 and going to the APP MENU but I can only see "Diagnostic Splash" Nothing else and in that diagnostic splash screen I see that the System BIOS is "shadowed"
How can i gain access to BIOS so I can disable UEFI and install Win 7 and Ubuntu side by side

If you're seing an Unknown Device in the Device Manager with an ACPI hardware ID (see image below) then try to update the driver manually and point it to the C:\ProgramData\Lenovo\ACPIDriver folder

If you're unable to see the driver files, I've uploaded them here.

Here the suggested solution from neokenchi that helped.
 
1. Boot into the BIOS by repeatedly tapping F2 on startup
 
2. In the BIOS, navigate to the Boot Tab and set UEFI to Disabled or Legacy then press F10 to save and exit. When
the computer reboots, check if you still get the errors and/or if you're able to boot into Windows.
 
3. If same problem, leave the changes that you made on Step 2 and attempt to re-install Windows via a Windows 8 recovery drive or OneKey Recovery button (note that this will wipe the computer to factory settings)
 
Hope this helps,

Hello. I have a Lenovo G580 Notebook with Windows 10 installed. The issue is that the Windows hotkeys, that is Windows key and other letter combinations, aren't working. For example, normally, if I press Windows key + I, then the Settings app should open up or if I press Windows key + R, then Run should open up. But the Start screen opens up instead in all such cases.

This is happening since I have updated the Synaptics touchpad driver via Windows Update. If I uninstall the driver, then the hotkeys start working again. But as soon as I install the driver, they stop working. This was not happening with Windows 10 before, even when the Synaptics driver was installed. It has suddenly started happening couple of months ago. Also I cannot completely uninstall the Synaptics driver because my laptop came with it itself nor can I stop the driver from updating as it is an important driver and it needs to be updated to be compatible with Windows 10.

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

A:Windows hotkeys not working on Lenovo G580 Notebook (Windows 10).

On the configurator/customizer website, I'm building a P50, and I have no drive selected for "first hard disk drive," but I have a 256GB SATA3 OPAL 2.0 for "second hard disk/first solid state" option. Then there's an option for a "second solid state" which I can check, and this option is only a SATA3 OPAL 2.0. If I have the HDD as the option for "First Hard Disk Drive," I still can select a 2.5 inch SATA3 as a "first solid state" drive. This seems to imply I could order this computer with 2 2.5'' drives.The SATA3 OPLA 2.0 is a 2.5" inch form factor, not a PCIe type. Does this mean that if I can get this computer with space for two 2.5" drives, or this is a glitch in their configurator? I've seen videos and pics of people opening up this computer and they all have one 2.5" slot and two PCIe slots.

My understanding is that the slot with two PCIe slots can also support a 2.5" drive, if you order the necessary rubber mounting bracket.  I could be wrong.  I do not actually have a P50 to tell you exactly.In my experience, the P50 and P70 only offer as the "second SSD" option exactly what the first SSD is (both size and type, irregardless of raid).  So, if you ordered the first as a 1TB SSD, the second SSD is only available in the 1TB size.  If the first is 512GB, the second is only available in 512GB, and so on. I think the P70's second HDD follows the same rules--they only offer the same size (for the optivcal drive replacement) as what you chose for your primary HDD.

The Windows Photo Viewer will not display photos in the order they are sorted by Windows Explorer.
This is not referring to the slide show feature, just the forward and back arrows.
The only order pictures can be viewed is by name despite Windows Explorer being set at view by date, ascending.
I have repaired Microsoft Live Essentials, uninstalled and reinstalled but the issue remains.
This is also not an issue with photo tags or photo names.
Windows Explorer sorts as selected but click a picture in the middle to view, click the forward arrow and instead of the next date picture being viewed, the next name picture is viewed.

A:Windows Photo Viewer; sorting order not the same as view order

Hi!

I upgraded to Windows 10 recently as well, I have the same problem and I also have a solution. However, I do not know, if it is ideal. :-)

What is obviously missing is an entry in the registry called DropTarget. This entry tells Windows Photo Viewer to display the images in the sorting order of the folder Photo Viewer got called from.

Non-solution:
I saw that at least in my registry there is a DropTarget defined in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Applications\photoviewer.dll\shell\open\DropTarget. From the name of the key and from reading the docs this looks as if it would be applied to all calls to this program, but -if that actually is the case- for me this entry does not work. It has been there (at least) after my Windows 10 upgrade, also the "Clsid"="{FFE2A43C-56B9-4bf5-9A79-CC6D4285608A}" seems to be fine, but it does not do the job.

Solution:
For me, this problem was present for jpg and png files, but not for bmp, dib, gif, jfif and what else can be opened with Windows Photo Viewer. To fix this, I have added the following to the Windows Registry:


Code:
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\jpegfile\shell\open\DropTarget]
"Clsid"="{FFE2A43C-56B9-4bf5-9A79-CC6D4285608A}"

"Clsid"="{FFE2A43C-56B9-4bf5-9A79-CC6D4285608A}"

A:No coa sticker

 A Certificate of Authenticity (COA) is a label that is used to identify genuine Microsoft Windows software. The COA included with Acer products is not used to reinstall the operating system. If your computer is shipped with windows 8 or 8.1, the Product key is electronically stored in the firmware of your mainboard.This is one of Microsoft's security measures to reduce piracy.So if you need to reset or reinstall Windows 8, you don't need to hunt for the product key. It's automatically applied and activated.That's certainly a plus, especially when the numbers on those product key stickers wear out or are just too small to easily read.   Click the Kudos to say ?Thanks? for helping! select "Accept Solution" if your issue is resovled.

If your computer is shipped with windows 8 or 8.1, the Product key is electronically stored in the firmware of your mainboard.This is one of Microsoft's security measures to reduce piracy.So if you need to reset or reinstall Windows 8, you don't need to hunt for the product key. It's automatically applied and activated.That's certainly a plus, especially when the numbers on those product key stickers wear out or are just too small to easily read.   Click the Kudos to say ?Thanks? for helping! select "Accept Solution" if your issue is resovled.

Quick Question:

I got a new motherboard and there's a sticker on the back of it. I peeled it off but now there's bits of it stuck on the motherboard. Mostly over the small lines, i think the bus lines.

Is this fine?
 

A:Sticker on Motherboard?

Stickers and paper are not conductive so yes that's fine. Also the traces on the motherboard are not exposed and are covered. You could use isopropyl alcohol to gently clean it if you wanted but be carefully that you don't introduce static electricity through your body to the board.

Try Produkey.  If that doesn't work, you may have to try other key finder programs.  You may find some similar software here.

"Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1
Product Part No.: X15-37379
Installed from 'OEM' media."

Is what Magic Jelly Bean Keyfinder says. The system won't boot, and the COA is mostly unreadable. The key that MJB keyfinder gives me is clearly different from what is on the COA on bottom of laptop. So I first loaded Win 7 HP 64 bit, and got an Activation error, so I reinstalled using Win 7 HP 32 bit, and got the same error. Both installs were done with OEM discs. The machine was working prior to HDD failure, she just doesn't remember what exactly the OS was. What are her/my options to get her up and running without repurchasing a new COA.

Thanks,
Scott

Hi,

I just want to throw in a disclaimer that this may sound like a paranoid question.

That said, I recently purchased a new Asus ROG notebook. I'm loving it and it's running all my games and apps smoothly. However, I noticed that right out of the box it has this weird residue above the intel sticker. I've attached an image to show what I'm talking about. I've been reading that laptops can have toxic chemicals in them and I don't know much about quality control standards overseas.

Does anyone have an idea of what the residue might be? I thought that the glue on back of these stickers were concise so it didn't make sense for the glue to just spread upwards, if it is glue at all.

A:Sticker Residue, What Is It?

just rub it off, stop worrying over nothing.

I've been using Linux for a while exclusively lately due to some heavy issues I had with Vista a few months ago. While I was running Linux I decided to make my laptop OS Neutral. I Removed the Windows sticker, sanded down the windows key, and removed the OEM Windows Sticker on the bottom. My questions are:

1. Is it legal to remove this sticker?

2. Without the code that is on the sticker, will I still be able to use the Upgrade Disc to Windows 7 since my Vista will still pass WGA or do I need the codes that were on the sticker?

(PS. If it was illegal then this whole situation is hypothetical)

A:Laptop OEM Sticker

LOL, hello Marty.

It is perfectly legal to do remove the sticker and make any kind modifications like that to your legally purchased computer.

However, I would strongly recommend that you at least write down the product key number on that sticker somewhere safe in case you ever decided to reinstall and activate Vista with it on that same computer.

My computer has recently died the death (multiple errors) and a techy friend of mine has recommended reinstalling Windows.

My problem is that the sticker with the product key on is faded all to heck and unreadable.
Is there any way to reinvigorate the sticker? The top barcode is still visible if that is of any use.

Alternatively I have an old dud laptop (also dead, I think the motherboard burnt out) which was on Vista. The sticker on this one is perfectly visible. Would I still be able to create a vista installation media and then perhaps upgrade to Windows 10.

I really don't want to have to purchase a new version of windows for the sake of a faded sticker.

Thanks in advance guys.
 

A:Faded Sticker... Help

Windows will be tied to the hardware
Vista is not free to upgrade to W10

if you have the recovery DVDs for the PC you may not need the Key
Also the recovery partition may still be working and you may be able to recovery using that

whats the make and exact model of the PC

I thought the clean install of Windows 7 (x64) on my son's Acer Aspire laptop had gone OK but I reckoned without Microsoft's activation. I ran the install using a retail disc which came with another computer.

Before running the install I took the precaution of running Belarc Advisor on the laptop to check the W7 licence key was the same as the one on the sticker. It turned out to be completely different, although both keys are in the normal XXXXX-*5 format.

Windows activation will not accept either key, but gives a different error for the two. When I try the sticker key it says

Invalid product key. The product key you have entered does not appear to be a valid Windows 7 product key. Please check your product key and type it again.


When I try the key retrieved by Belarc Advisor it comes up with error code 0xC004003 and message

I have an acer chromebook 13 CB5-311.  After watching someone replace a harddrive on a C720P, I realized they removed a acer sticker that was placed over a screw on the back cover.  They said if you remove this sticker it would void your warranty because it lets acer know your computer has been tampered with.  So I turned over my chromebook and I noticed all my phillip head screws were visible.  Should my CB5-311 have a acer sticker over one of the screws?

It is an older modem that he states worked when he stopped using it and somewhere along the way the sticker with the customer s/n number fell off. is there anyway to connect it to my computer and gather the information. I am running xp on my computer.
thanks, for your assistance.

I have some new G-skill 1066 Mhz RAM. My motherboard has the voltage at 1.8V. The RAM spec voltage is 2.0-2.1V. I have set this at 1.9V but am wondering if going to 2.0 or 2.1V would be a good idea. I have seem some tutorials and 2 page long papers on overclocking RAM but this is more simple. Is it better to have RAM voltage set to spec or leave it at "normal" or "auto"

A:Adjusting RAM voltage to sticker on RAM

As far i know.

More RAM voltage = higher frequencies that the memory can reach and lets you use minor CAS latency than default. For example: the memories by default are set to 1.8v and 5-5-5-18 CAS latency, if you set them to 2.0-2.1 you can use a lesser latency like 4-4-4-12.

I hope you understand and I am sorry for my bad english.

Quick question, haven't paid attention before to know.

Hi again!

I have a question regarding the product key 'sticker' located underneath laptops and/or the side of your desktop. Before i begin, let me just say that the question(s) below are basically just out of curiosity (for now). It sure will come in handy in future if i need to perform such action(s).

Back on topic. I'll be using a laptop as an example in this post.
Scenario: So let's say my HDD died and there's no possible way to send it (to the manufacture) for repairs or perform a data recovery on the drive as it's too heavily damaged. I then purchase a brand new HDD to replace it. The 'original' HDD of course contains the 'recovery manager' (on a separate partition) for us to perform a clean install/repair (plus the drivers, etc). By replacing the HDD, it's obvious that i no longer have the 'recovery manager/partition' as it's brand new (and oh, i didn't have a recovery CD/DVD too in this example).

Question: Is it possible for me to use a friends' Windows DVD (of the same OS and 'type' such as Home, Professional, ultimate, etc) and perform a clean install but instead of using the key which came with the DVD, I'll be using the product key located underneath the laptop? Will it work?

Every DVD are the same right? Or perhaps each DVD require it's own specific keys?
If i can't, you could stop reading here.
If i could, other than having to install the drivers myself (as opposed to the 'recovery manager' method where it'll install the drivers automatically since it's n... Read more

A:Question Regarding Product Key (sticker)

Yes, you can use a friend's dvd and install the SAME edition that came preinstalled on your computer, then activate online with the sticker key. If that doesnt go through (normally it does), just call MS and they'll activate for you. You'll still be genuine after all this.

The best way to preserve the recovery partition is to make recovery disks using the recovery manager software on the OEM computer. Running these disks on a new hdd can be tricky at times- you may need to create a minimum no. of partitions or go through some other loops for it to work. It depends on the OEM brand. You can also copy and save the recovery partition on an external drive, the specifics again depend on the oem brand.

I have my Satellite L750 for about 4years now, i recently had a accident witch lead to me having to have the bottom of the case replaced but no longer have the windows code sticker and i wanted to know how do i go about getting a new one, do i have to email support or but a new one.

A:How to get new Windows Code sticker?

Maybe it sounds stupid now but this sticker is useless. It is just evidence that you got valid product key with your recovery image. I write recovery image because this product key belongs OS version that you got with your notebook.
Do you have original recovery installation disc? If yes you don't need the key because recovery image can be installed 1000 times and every time preinstalled version will be activated properly.

With other words nobody will send you the key that you got on the sticker. The product key is implemented in original recovery image and cannot be used in case that you want to activate any other Microsoft OS version.

I need some more experienced advice about product key stickers. I have purchased a used dell Inspiron n5010. It originally came with 7 Pro. I contacted Microsoft to check the product key on the sticker and they say it is no good. I was told some time ago that the possessor of the sticker is the owner of the sticker. Is this true? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hey everyone, I use the sticker labels quite a bit, and I was wondering if the added thickness is OK to play in a slot inserted CD Player, like the in-dash CD changers in cars? Would the added thickness cause the CD to get stuck?

Also, is it OK to put sticker labels on CD-Rs with Printable Surfaces? I read some where that its bad to do this with Printable Surfaces, because its easy for the label to peel off or something.

I'd love to hear peoples' experiences with Label Stickers, good or bad...Thanks!
