I am having a hard time figuring out how to locate the volume license product key on my computer. This computer was donated to me by someone who went to a computer program , where it was donated to her. I am nolonger able to get in contact with her so I'm basically stuck.

Please someone tell me how to figure this out.

The manufacture name isn't even on it I don't think.

but there is a sticker of some sort:

Volume License keys are sold to businesses in bulk...if you are not the original holder of the license, you are not entitled to use this copy of Windows, I'm afraid...they should have wiped the machine before donating to you.

In other words, inadvertantly, you are pirating software. We cannot offer help on this forum for this machine

I am very sorry. I know it is not your fault, but it is site policy

also....if the machine has 2000 on it already...then the volume license key would be for 2000 and wouldn't work for xp anyway....you should be using the license key that came with the copy of XP that you purchased
