    Hello Kompressor,

    It looks like you may be out of luck. You should always write down or print out your product key and keep it somewhere safe.

    Did it come back from warranty with your Windows 8 already installed and activated? If so, then you could use one of the programs in the tutorial below to see your product key number.
