    Ok guys... I have a problem...

    I had installed vista on my gaming PC and it kept crashing when I would try to run several of my games...

    Since then (several months ago) I have not re-installed XP...

    NOW i can NOT find my product key which I purchased seperate from my PC...

    I am NOT asking for key codes... what I am looking for:

    How do I go about getting a valid key code?

    Or on the flip side... if someone no longer uses their XP I would be willing to trade old games for a legal copy of XP with Key...

    belarc advisor should dig out a product key for you.

    Correct me if I am wrong, but isnt that one of those apps that digs it out if you have the OS installed on that machine?

    If so, that won't work as I formatted the harddrive, and installed vista, and I never re-installed XP...

    If the software isn't installed Belcarc won't do it. Is it possible to go to the vendor you got it from and try to get a key? Other than that, not sure what you could do.
