    Yes it worked! It brought up the OEM key. Every other key finder gave me a wrong one but that worked perfectly. Thanks a million for that. Thanks to everyone else who replied as well.
    I had the same problem and this worked for me too!! Big thanks to Superfly

    Wow... this trouble just to activate. I ran ShowKey and it says OEM not found. All I did was a factory reset and now I cannot activate. Hmmmm

    Where did you buy the PC? The OEM key should be in the chip, may need to contact the seller.

    Please make sure you use ShowKeyPlus... it's fully compatible with all versions Win 7 through Win10.

    The old version (Showkey.vbs 1.3) won't recognize Win 8 keys (it's Win 8.1 specific)

    Win 8.1


    Awesome! It worked like a charm!
    I had the same problem. I actually downgraded my laptop from Win 10 to Win 8.1 cuz it was lagging a lot (I have a low RAM). So i made a clean install of Win 8.1 (torrent downloaded) but couldn't fix the key problem.
    You made my day. Thanks! @Superfly (:
