i have located my coa but on it reads... you are required to affix this
Certificate of Authenticity to your exterior of the pc with number along the
side 00046-767-990-886 and along the bottom it reads windows xp proffesional
1 - 2cpu, my book tells me this is where i should be finding the product key
but then my computer asks me for a 25 digit product key so i was wondering
could some please tell me what part of this might me the product key.
thank you

The Product Key is the 25-digit alpha-numeric string printed
on the COA.

The product key is the combination of letters and numbers in 5 blocks of 5 -
ie xxxxx-yyyyy-xxxxx-yyyyy-xxxxx

Look above the 00046-767-990-886 number.

The one that reads Product Key.
