    The label under my HP G56 laptop is considerably faded as I use it on my lap.
    Is there a way of reliably retrieving the code should I need it one day?
    I've used various "free" programs to find it but so far none have worked although they did identify a CD Key and product ID.
    The device came with no re-installation disc if that matters and the product key printed on the box, which I still have, is in another format namely XP2xxxxx/#xxx rather than the usual 5 blocks with hyphen in between (or xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx).
