No the OEM key is not what the sticker would have. They mass produce these things so many laptops use the same key. The Key on the bottom of the laptop has never been used. Kinda useful if you need a extra windows key.
Look under the battery or on the power brick. They are hiding the windows key now of days but it should be there some where.Edited by DzillaXx - 11/21/12 at 2:26am
