Windows 8 was already activated on my system at the time of purchase. About a week ago i started seeing a message advising it is not activated. There is no product key on the bottom of the machine neither was there a key on the battery.The only product key found was under Pc Info and that turns out to be a manufacturer's key so there is nothing i can do with that. Worst part is I'm not in a location where a Recovery disk can be shipped. Any ideas as to how i can get this sorted out?

IF the Internet based activation does not work... they is/was an option to do it phone based... they will take the key from the label.

You can also get the "real" key by using Belarc Advisor.
