Hi i ve bought new dell inspiron.
Bt i ' m not able to find the product key of windows 8. neither below the system nor in battery compartment.
On checking iwth dell tea they say its injected on mothererboard ??? can any 1 guide how to get that key.
Are you facing any issues with the computer? Is there any specific reason for which you require the product key.
It is true that if Windows 8 was pre-installed on the system, then product key will be injected on the motherboard. Even if you re-install Windows, it will not ask for the product key. When the PC is started for the first time, Windows activates automatically. If there is no Internet connection, activation will be retried periodically.
Please reply if you have any questions.

Windows 8 keys are encrypted stored in the Bios installed at the factory. There are no more COA Stickers due to piracy.
Windows 8 now comes with a Genuine Microsoft Label there are NO MORE Certificate of Authenticity (COA) Labels.
See the following examples of labels to look for.
Color-Shifting Ink The color shift on the label is designed to change from one color to another when viewed from different angles,
making it easy to determine if it is genuine.
Windows 8: magenta to green
Windows 8 Pro: blue to purple
Windows RT: turquoise to purple
"key will be injected" no this is not correct. There are no syringes used.
You could try Belarc Advisor.
I dont know if this shows the key or not.
