    What product key are you talking about? Windows, Office, What?

    Windows product keys are on a sticker affixed to the PC itself, usually on the bottom of the laptop, near the access doors. If it's another product it should have been with the packaging of the app.

    If there is not a product key sticker on the laptop you should contact the seller you got the laptop from to supply a valid product key and sticker.

    Yes, I too am wondering, "a trial of what"....the OS or Office?

    Unless someone removed it, the Lic Key for Windows itself is always on a sticker on the bottom of the Laptop.

    If you bought the Laptop with some bogus version of Windows on it, and the seller will not make it right, you have only one choice, and that is to BUY a legal copy of Windows and install it yourself.
    Or take the laptop to a reputable computer shop and have them fix it for you.
    Then you have the problem of getting all the drivers for that Laptop, from Toshiba.
    Once again, any decent shop should be able to do that too.
    If you're in central Florida, bring it over here and I'll do it for you.

    For the novice, that can become a real bucket of worms.

    Many new PC's come with a trial copy of MS Office. When the trial period is up, (usually 90 days) you have two choices..... you can buy it or delete it. Most people just Un-Install it and download "Open Office" a FREE program that works just like MS Office.
    I do that for my customers all the time.

    Good Luck,

    I guess the OP does not wish us to know which product he is missing his key on. I would also suspect Office as Windows key is attached to the PC.

    So far, it sounds like one of those Office 2007 90 day trials. There's one on just about every new PS. What a scam!
    He probably can't find the KEY, because he's not bought it yet. Ya think?

    I delete those trial programs, every time I find them. People don't want to spend $200+ when they can get the equivalent for FREE, from Open Office.
    Money talks, and BS walks!

    The Windows Key would have been put in when Windows was installed, not sometime later.

    "So far, it sounds like one of those Office 2007 90 day trials. There's one on just about every new PS. What a scam!"

    Yea, just as this this thread began as. Look, we've all been around the block long enough to see this one, the COA's are on the bottom of the laptop, & if they're not there, that's too bad. The OP should've checked out this purchase before making it. Something doesn't sound right here, we've seen enough of these threads to know, therefore:

    THREAD CLOSED!

    Nothing productive is going to arise from it.
