Hi There,


I have a sony vaio vpceh26en, which has to be formatted.

The windows key is not known to me. Also the tags on the bottom have faded badly.


Any method to retrieve the key.


Thanks in advance

Hi S_j2000,


Welcome to Sony Community!


Our computers come with an OEM version of Windows operating system where in the license key is attached to the main board & CPU components. We don't have a copy of this Windows license. The original Windows operating system can only be retrieved by doing a Full Format Recovery or use a VAIO Recovery Disc


For further assistance regarding your concern, please contact the Sony offices/Sony representative offices nearest to your place of residence in Asia Pacific region Due to proximity, they are in a better position to respond to your questions or concerns.
