  • Hi Jennie Leach,

    First thing is make sure the Product key with the seller. If we couldn’t contact to he, we could run the MGAD Tool to check as J W Stuart provided.

    For the Product key policy, if you purchased a new computer with OEM version of Windows 7 preinstalled, you need to check the computer case to find out the product key or contact the OEM support.

     If you purchased a retail version of Windows 7, please check the package or confirm with the retailer.

     If you have not purchased a version of Windows 7, please contact the local Microsoft Customer Service Center or go to the store to purchase one copy.

    Also please refer to the link below to get more information.

    Hope it will be helpful to you
