Preferred Solution: Thinkpad T440p preinstalled product key missing

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

  Hello,

I upgraded my lenovo thinkpad t440p (20AN00CBRI) from Windows 7 professional x64 to windows 10 . Now, after all the updates (provided by microsoft and lenovo) to the laptop I encounter the following problems :

>> the Power Manager aplication from windows 7 it's not present anymore on windows 10. I understand that on Windows 10 this it is not needed anymore but this is a big issue : " The CPU FAN is not working at the same speed like on windows 7 and It is very slow (!??!?!) " because of this the laptop heats very bad and it is very deficult to use specially for typing . :(
>> Another thing, I thing the heat dissipation in the design is poorly done for a laptop meant for business .
>> Also, the heat (left side of the laptop CPU, GPU and SSD ) always present by heating I mean > 50 Celsius degrees even in idle mode with the battery out from the laptop and no aditional software installed but only the default upgraded windows 10 .

Please let me know if this is " known heating issue with lenovo thinkpad t440p product code 20AN00CBRI " with this product. I want to get a replacement but hopefully without the heating problem . And let's not forget this is an expensive product designed for business ussage and it is kind of disappointment that it's not delivering the necessary fiability for a business product !!!

Thank you,
Best regards,

Only thing that Lenovo would give me was vague configuration on the 20AN. Was hoping someone could direct me to something more specific.

When I buy my product the Windows 10 Original was preinstalled on my Notebook PC and backup files were given in a locked drive. Recently my hard disk has been crashed and backup files are gone. Can I get my windows product key back?

A:Preinstalled Windows product key

Mahbubur_Rifat Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums! Your product key is still on the PC.  On Win8 machines and newer, the product key is embedded into the UEFI firmware of the motherboard.  You can retrieve is using this tool:  http://www.tenforums.com/software-apps/2577-showkey.html Howver, what you SHOULD use to restore your PC is HP Recover Media and that will automatically find and reuse the product key. HP Recovery Media is a set of DVDs and a CD, or USB stick, that will erase the hard drive (removing all data, settings, and applications, reinstall the original OS, drivers, and some HP Utilities. In some cases, you may be able to order a USB stick instead of disks. You have to order these from HP; they can not be downloaded.You can look online for Recovery Media starting with the linked paged: http://support.hp.com/us-en/driversOnce there, input your Product name or number.

No need to add product key to a Windows 8 image, as the installer will see the key in the BIOS.






Where is the Windows 8 Product Key?


Factory-installed Windows 8 computers differ from previous versions of Windows. Previously, the Product Key for Windows was attached as a label on the computer so that, in the event that the computer required reinstallation, the key could be referenced for activation.

For Windows 8, the Product Key is "injected" onto the computer motherboard at the factory, and the installation and activation processes refer to the BIOS of the computer to verify authenticity and activate Windows. No Windows Product Key is otherwise provided or needed by the customer.

A:Have preinstalled ms office but need product key

@Mohammadali1 Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!First of all, you need to know that HP keeps no records of individual MS Office product keys associated with individual PCs. That means there is no way to obtain this information from HP.Second, ever since Office 2013, MS Office has been distributed in two different forms: (1) installed locally, (2) installed using Click-to-Run (CTR).  The local versions used a product key received with the purchase (or via email, from a download), the CTR versions used a product key received via email from MS, but it was NOT stored on the PC. If you have the Local version, you should be able to retrieve that key using these utilities:  https://www.lifewire.com/free-product-key-finder-programs-2625119 If you have the CTR version, the key is not stored locally, and you can only get it by contacting Microsoft.Good Luck

I haven't downloaded an installation media from microsoft website yet because I realized I don't know the product key. I have searched through my laptop's box and case with no result.

i have a lenovo notebook (G50-30 Laptop (Lenovo) - Machine Type 80G0). I want to install Windows 10, but it always said that it needs a windows key. I found out that there is no key in my BIOS (Windows license - NO DPK). So i'm sure that there was a paid windows license, when the notebook was bought, so where is the key?

A:G50-30 - Missing Windows Product Key

Hi Dosihris , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
Starting with Windows 8 onwards , product key for OEM preloaded computer would no longer be seen on the COA sticker and would just inform of the Windows version it came with . 
 
As some software would try to recover those keys , it may not always work as it is embedded on the chips of the motherboard using Activation 3.0 . 
 
Verify that all updates are done on the preloaded windows 7 sp1 / windows8.1 to avail of the free upgrade to windows 10 . Part of those updates would automatically offer you the Windows 10 upgrade . 
 
Additional reference guide here , already checked G50-30 with windows 8.1 is eligible for the said upgrade. 
If you just upgrade it with a Win10 installer , most likely it would treat it as not part of the free upgrade similar to a retail version installation.
 
Update us how it is on your system.
 
Regards

Missing product key

Greetings, The product key is in the BIOS and Windows Registry if your factory operating system is Win 8.x or later. Use Belarc Advisor to find the key if your PC is bootable. Cheers!

I am building a new PC, bought a Retail "box unopened" copy of XP Pro on Ebay but was supplied with an unbranded OEM CD, apparently unopened, with the Microsoft booklet, but no COA or product key.
I have submitted a dispute claim with PayPal but would like to know if there is any way I can use this CD legitimately.
Is there any way I can install from the CD without knowing the product key?
Can any of the tools which find the product key on an installed WinXP, find it on the system CD?
Or do I just have an expensive bird scarer?
Thanks for any help or guidance.

You are now the proud owner of a very expensive Frisbee.
Seriosly i think the only thing you could do is contact Microsoft and they might SELL you a product key

Hello Ande,

If it was a retail copy of Vista that you bought from the company on Amazon, then it should have a COA sticker or paper in the packaging with the key number on it. If not, I would recommend to contact the company that you bought it from for a replacement that has one. It's real shady if it didn't have a key with it though.

Laptop ordered via Costco, working great. Had a problem and had to reload all software 8.1...Mircrosoft Office at Home did not get loaded and need to retrieve from Microsoft support, but cannot locate 25 chararacter product key when I originally purchased laptop.Costco does not have it. Does HP have any record of this MS product key when they originally built the laptop?

@ioncountry? HP might have the key information; I would not count on that even assuming you had purchased the box from HP.  It is likely the information is archived "somewhere", getting it from company might prove difficult. Try the following: Product Key - Find for Windows 8 In particular the provided link inlcudes the following Section:OPTION THREE  Find Windows 8 and 8.1 Product Key with "Belarc Advisor "  ____________________________________________________________ Belarc is a very nice program and provides a great deal of information, including key(s). When you see a Post that helps you,Inspires you, provides fresh insight,Or teaches you something new,Click the "Thumbs Up" on that Post. Click my Answer Accept as Solution to help others find Answers.
