Q: Find Windows Product Key (Acer Aspire R3-471T-54T1...

I had Windows 8 when I purchased this laptop. I upgraded to Windows 10 later on. Recently, the laptop had been giving trouble when installing some Windows 10 update (specifically KB3172729). Right now, it won't boot Windows at all and I am looking to do a clean installation of Windows 10. The problem is I don't have the key. Is it possible to find out the key for either Windows 8/8.1/10?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi, I have a problem with my Aspire R5-471T in which I have no internet, and when I try to set-up a connection it says "Windows did not detect any networking hardware". I tried re-installing the drivers, and even doing a full reinstall via the "Reset" option. The laptop was having some issues for finding the internet connection in the past days but then it found it, but now it doesn't work at all.Any ideas or suggestions? Might it be a real hardware issue? Because I don't know what else to do on the driver side.

I was trying to install windows 7 on this laptop without success until I found the Microsoft windows 7 USB 3 creator, the installation was successfull but now the big problem, USB is not detected in the windows, it needs a driver and there is no lan, wan, bluetooth, card reader, usb3 port, all that doesn't work unless I install the USB driver.How I can install the USB driver and everything is not detected?Acer claims the block port is usb 2.0 port but no it is usb 3.0 port.If windows successully installed, where are the native usb 3 driver used during the installation?

A:Aspire R5 471T-71W2 windows 7 USB problem

as far as i know, windows 7 doesn't have a native USB3.0 support by the way on your laptop an USB 2.0 (the one not blu) is available and this, normally works under windows 7. if you still have issues, you could try to create a slipstream version with some embedded drivers, nLite will help you do it (it's free):https://www.ntlite.com/http://www.askvg.com/download-nlite-for-windows-7-windows-8-and-windows-8-1/

My Acer Aspire running Windows 7 and using an ethernet cable can't find an internet connection. It was working fine then I downloaded a pre-loaded version of Microsoft Office 10 suites and the next time I tried to get online the connection was gone. I didn't download the Office from the internet so I can't imagine it is a virus but I don't know what could have happened. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Suggestion :
Do a system restore> Pick the date before you " downloaded a pre-loaded MS Office " as your restore point.
Hopefully, that will give you back access to internet.

>>>> I downloaded a pre-loaded version of Microsoft Office 10 suites......

Were you trying to say that your computer had a pre-installed " trial version " of Microsoft Office 2010 when you first bought your computer. Trial version has since expired, and you tried to download a full paid version of the Microsoft Office 2010 ?

A:Recovery Acer Software aspire product 45.. series

"Usually" the Acer recovery partition was a hidden partition; inaccessible by the usual means; at least it was some time back. Sometimes called a PQ partition if I remember correctly (at least for Acer laptops a wee while back). It was usually first item on the hard drive too.You seem to suggest that the system was initially Vista; then you took it up to win-7... Possibly in the process of going to win-7 the (Vista) recovery partition was destroyed; or at least overwritten by a win-7 version?This rather olde post has a very helpful response from Johnw - it's the best answer entry too.http://tinyurl.com/hl8nugxFollow John's routine and see if you can "see" any evidence of a recovery partition?This is another approach too:http://tinyurl.com/l7u3q5zand this may also explain "your" particular drive partitioning as was and possibly is now:http://tinyurl.com/hr4jceoIt would appear that in some more recent systems the PQ/Recovery partition is now flagged as D: ; and thus if per chance your IT chums got at that D partition on your laptop.. then they erased its contents when they reformatted it...?

I downloaded the newest driver for the Qualcomm Aheros ar956x wireless network adapater from Acer.com.I then ran the setup.exe on the latop, and it said that it installed successfully. I then rebooted the laptop.To no avail. It still can't find my WiFi. It can find other WiFi's, but not mine.I have no issues connecting to my WiFi with any other devices.I've spent countless hours trying to get this laptop online now, how do I solve this?I've tried connecting manually, whatever that does, but nothing happened.What's wrong with this network adapter? It's infuriating, especially when I see how many others are having issues with this exact network adapter.PLEASE HELP ME....

I'm not ignoring you, I just know little about laptops. I believe your processor will work in any MB with socket 479 that is of the size to fit into your case. But getting ports to line up and dealing with propitiatory connections and such things is near impossible. Your best bet would probably be order it from Acer, or use this as an excuse to buy a new laptop.

In general I do not do BIOS updates without a reason. I also wait about a month for new updates (Win 10 is annoying that way) If it is working well, don't fix it. The R5-471T I have here is on BIOS 1.03.

The battery is not considered user replaceable as far as Acer is concerned, it can be done though.
 
The memory is onboard memory and is not able to be upgraded.

Hi Guys,
Got a 2nd hand Aspire z5700 all-in-one computer.
Purchased and tried to install Windows 8 and at the point where you setup drives/partitions it says it can't find driver/drives.
Tried acer website (No drivers for this only chipset which doesn't work) and Intel AHCI Sata drivers and although these show in list them of being compatible with hardware, It then tells me that it can't find any drives.
Help !
I can't even go back to Windows 7 Home Premium as it now reports same issue, can't seem to find any assistance from Acer after 2 days of searching.
Any assistance would be very much appreciated !

Hello, my old laptop went down, so I bought a new one, which is Acer Aspire ES1421. I got it without OS as I have my old Windows 7 from previous laptop, however once I installed them, I can't get my Internet to work. Neither wired, nor wireless. The official website provides only the drivers for Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. I tried them, but they don't work on Windows 7. Is there any place for me to get the ones, which do work on Windows 7? I really don't want to get Windows 8.1 and especially Windows 10, because I really don't like them, and I'd really prefer Windows 7 over them. Even if I'd have to buy another license of Windows 7 for that specific laptop (if for whatever reason I can't share same Windows from my old laptop).

After downloading the Windows 10 Anniversary Update to my R5-471T-51UN laptop, my Logitech M535 Bluetooth mouse will no longer re-connect after either a power-cycle of the mouse or a reboot of the laptop; I have to re-pair the mouse with the laptop every time I want to use it. Uninstalling and re-installing the most current available version of the Bluetooth driver has no effect. I suspect that there is a compatibility problem with the Bluetooth driver and the Anniversary Update because: - I didn't have this problem prior to the installation of the Anniversary Update- My Logitech mouse does not require its own driver- When I turn off the mouse with the Windows Bluetooth dialog open, the status goes from "Connected" to "Driver error" to "Paired" Would appreciate any additional troubleshooting advice that I might be overlooking, or (preferably) an estimate as to when a fixed Bluetooth driver will be made available.

So recently I need to get a Sony Tie Clip Microphone to work on my Acer Aspire R3-471T laptop, however, as there is only one audio jack, I do not know how to connect the microphone so the laptop identifies it as a microphone. I do recall very slightly a notification asking me which device Apple headphones where and maybe seeing a microphone option.  I cannot seem to find anyway to get the laptop to recognize the mic as a microphone and I would prefer not a purchase an audio apparatis if it can be avoided. Is there anyway to do this? or am I just spending time pulling out hair on a fruitless task?

Intel has a stable driver release dated 3/8/2016 for HD520 graphics. The i5-6200U found in this laptop is specifically mentioned. This driver can not be installed on the 471T by any traditional/standard means. Acer needs to package a newer driver release for this laptop desperately. Doesn't matter what I do, this machine is plagued with constant GPU driver crashes, especially while browsing the web (browser choice doesn't matter). This is a WIDELY KNOWN issue with skylake laptops, and is largely solved by a driver update, but this can not be done without an Acer packacged driver release. Running 5 months behind schedule on driver releases is not even reasonable.

Hello everyone. As the title says, i have problems with both shutdown and hibernate procedures. There are many times when i try to shutdown or hibernate the laptop, the screen turns black, but the laptop still works, and it won't shutdown/hibernate, which forces me to close the laptop from the power button. Some of the times it works. So if anyone knows what the problem might be...it would be amazing. Thank you and a good day.

My system is roughly months old I had used the upgrade software that Acer provided to upgrade from Vista to home premium There was no issues with the install and everything worked great for a month and then it started going in to Acer M3203 Windows software Acer's upgrade and Aspire 7 deep hibernation The only way to wake it was to unplug Acer Aspire M3203 and Acer's Windows 7 upgrade software the power from the tower I did everything I could think of from editing the registry to updating drivers to finally reinstalling everything No go so I packed it up and sent it back to Acer I just got it back from Acer's repair depot They had to replace the motherboard hard drive and fans on the system They performed a factory restore and told me that I was good to go and updating shouldn't be an issue I went to use the upgrade dvd's from Acer and low and behold the hibernation thing started again It took me four attempts to restore it back to factory Now it seems stable running Vista I am in the process up updating the drivers and windows stuff so time will tell Is it me or is Acer systems flakey Does anyone have any recommendations on how I can go about updating to Windows without having to format every week I have tried doing clean installs without going the upgrade path and it still behaves badly Sometimes it won't even turn on Or is it just possible that the pc I purchased just can't handle Windows

A:Acer Aspire M3203 and Acer's Windows 7 upgrade software

Are you booting the Acer Win7 Upgrade Media DVD to do a clean install? You can do that to get the cleanest possible install, without the corruption that is imported from Vista in an in-place Upgrade.

The installer is driver-complete, but afterwards any missing drivers which don't quickly arrive in Optional Windows Updates can be found on the apps/drivers CD along with favorite apps like Works, cam, etc. Others can be found on the Acer Support Downloads webpage for your model computer, Adobe (flash, Reader) and Java (runtime, free Ofc suite) sites.

Hi,
I recently got an Acer W500P tablet which came with Windows 7 Pro x32. I am planning on installing the new Windows 8 as I have been told it is perfect for tablets.

Before I do this I want to make sure if it doesn't go as well as I hope it will I want to put Win7 back on. But it didn't come with a CD or Product Key.

How can i find what product key it is using?
I tried a program "WinKeyFinder", it gave me a key but when i googled half of the key it came up with the whole key in the results (websites giving away keys for free).

Was that my key or did the program give me the wrong one?
If that was my key, would it work if I do a clean install of windows?

Thank you in advance.

First, each model has multiple hardware specifications. So I have no way of knowing the hardware configurations of either unit that you have.

Second, upgrades are limited on OEM PC's. Your only options will be RAM and the video card. And in the case of the video card, the power supply may not be able to handle a decent card.

They key I had written down is actually the product ID and not the product KEY.

I have run Produkey in an attempt to find it using this line i read in another thread,

F:\Windows.old\Windows\System32\config\software

It gave me the correct key for my other program however for Windows 7 it gives me a default key that is not valid. Did I do something wrong with this or am I completely out of luck? I don't have access to the .edu email I used to get Windows 7 from the website 4 years ago.

The product key cannot be used to install a retail version of Windows 8

Is there another ISO I should be using? Ultimately I'm trying to get an ISO for use with my VMWare Fusion 6 install running on my Mac (10.9.1). I'm confident the product key given to me by my company is legit, but it obviously isn't a retail product key, probably some kind of corporate key or the equivalent.

Download the "magic jellybean" program (Google will find it searching with that name) and run it.
It will extract those numbers for XP OK.

My laptop is equipped with Win10 Home preinstalled. OS is corrupted and recovery partition is not working. When I requested for recovery media, HP sent me only Win 8.1 and asked me to upgrade to Win10 as it is free now. I was able to recover. Golden days are gone. July 29, 2016 is last for free Windows 10 upgrade. If I face the same issue then, I can only install Windows 8.1 and cannot upgrade. Meaning, I bought Windows 10, but can use only 8.1. If I can know the product key for my Windows I assume I can even after the free upgrade deadline as my product key is for Windows10 itself. So, I would like to know how to find it.

A:How to find product key of my Windows?

It is not as bad as you fear. July 29, 2016 is the last day for a free upgrade to Windows 10 for the first time. Once you do the upgrade, the Windows Authentication Server will know your machine and you will be able to clean install Windows 10 after that back onto your machine even after a hard drive replacement.  You can also read the Key from the BIOS using a few different apps: http://www.nextofwindows.com/how-to-retrieve-windows-8-oem-product-key-from-bios If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

in order to avoid ringing ms to re activate for the 3 remaining licenses i need to find out which media center key is in use. is there a key finder or viewer i can use to find my media center key or is there an easier way ?

I had that sticker on the back of my laptop with product key but that came off long time ago. The problem I have now is that I've recently updated to windows 10 and shortly after that my HDD failed. I replaced my HDD and reinstalled windows but product key my win 10 showed before is not valid as an activation key. I contacted Microsoft to see what my options are and they advised me that if I can provide them with windows 7 key I had at the beginning they can solve this problem for me. Is there any chance I can get it somehow?? Any help would be highly appreciated.

Hi: The windows product key is encrypted in the BIOS.  Microsoft put an end to product key stickers starting with all PC's that come with Windows 8. The product key will automatically populate the area where you enter the key as you install W8.1. Note:  You  have to use the HP recovery disks, recovery disk set you made when you first got the PC, or a W8.1 OEM installation disk. If you plan on trying to use the W8.1 media you can download from Microsoft, there is a trick to get that to work. http://www.eightforums.com/installation-setup/38486-need-help-formatted-genuine-windows-8-lenovo.htm...

A:How to find Windows 8.1 product key on the laptop?

When you buy new notebook and get it with preinstalled OS you will get one valid version that includes valid product key.
With other words original version that you got with your machine will be properly activated. Product key belongs to this original version only and you cannot use it for activation if you want to install own OS version.

For your Win8 version you must pick up product key from Microsoft.

Of course you can have original OS version again but you must order it by Toshiba - https://backupmedia.toshiba.eu/landing.aspx

I purchased and installed Windows 8 some time ago and then upgraded to 8.1 via the Windows Store.
When I got the upgrade I saved the ISO file in case I needed to reinstall.
At no time did I receive a different product key for the store version of 8.1 and now that I wish to reinstall I find that my original Windows 8 product key doesn't work.
I ran Belarc Advisor which shows that I do indeed have Windows 8.1 PRO X64 installed and the product key is indeed the same key that I used for Windows 8.
Short of going back and reinstalling Windows 8 and reapplying all the updates it seems I am stuck.
Going that route would also entail converting my disks back to MBR from GPT.

How do I get around this?

PS
I also cannot create installation media.
