The license sticker should be inside the battery bay. I *never* recommend upgrading (or downgrading) an OS. In this case I would recommend a product restoration (aka OneKey Recovery
or factory reset
) which should reinstall the original OS, drivers and applications included on the system when it was new. Scott.
PS: If it were mine I would install Windows 7 instead...
Thanks Scott, I did try OneKey Recovery sadly the error persists.
This machine like others Win8/8.1 machines has no Licence sticker.
***Just noticed that Windows Safe mode with networking enables the Wifi and I've connected to the network***
***Laptop is working now, one piece of software had caused the problems, safe mode and a Mscofig-edited boot had solved the issue.***
