    Which keyfinder did you use? Did it say it's a Windows 8.1 N key and do you have that version installed?

    Download Portable RWEverything. Run it , Click on ACPI then MSDM .. The last line in the table (DATA) gives your Product Key

    This will work if you have a Bios embedded OEM key

    Cheers

    showkey is easier to use, just saying. Did this PC come with Windows 8 installed at the factory? If it didn't there may not be an embedded key.

    Just ran rweverything on my desktop PC, no UEFI and no embedded key. No MSDN either.

    Ok, then it won't have an embedded key. The key your pulling is the key currently in use and stored in the registry. If the PC is already showing as not activated, typing in this key will not help, its the same key its already using. You need to call the shop that installed Windows on that laptop. Was it ever activated while you owned it?
