      be on the side of your box… or on the bottom of your laptop… you will have to reactivate it no matter what. If you get the activated to many times error, call them they will activate it for you.

        Activation or installation key?

        If you’re talking about the key you put in when installing, then the previous posts will suit your needs.

        If your talking about activation after Windows is installed, I can’t say I have ever seen anything for that on Belarc, and I haven’t used Jellybean in a while, so I can’t say.

        If your reinstalling on the same hardware, then Microsoft should recognize it is the same computer and allow it to activate. If you changed some hardware, such as replacing a motherboard, and Microsoft saw this as a different machine and didn’t allow the activation over the internet, you can just call the number it gives you, tell the nice Microsoft person that you changed the motherboard, or your computer died and you are legally installing your copy of Windows on another computer, or whatever, and they will get you activated.
