    What serial are you talking about?
    If you're talking about windows serial, it should be on the windows CD case
    that you bought and not on the computer.

    Hi;

    Do you mean something like this? http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=326904

    If not, does the sticker on your computer match the version of Windows you
    are trying to install/activate?

    Microsoft doesn't care about the serial number of your computer anymore
    than Blaupunkt cares about the VIN for your car in which you install
    their dash radio. Microsoft only cares about the product key for THEIR
    product, which is Windows. So use the sticker on the case for the
    Windows product key (which is for the SAME version as you are
    installing, which would be an OEM version is there is a sticker on the
    case) or use the sticker on the jewel case, sleeve, or wallet in which
    the Windows installation CD(s) were packaged.
