my mate bought himself a new pc today, but when he tries to put in the service tag no for windows authentication he cannot cos some of the numbers he needs will not come up, he took the keyboard back, tried another no joy, he's tried using the dedicated number keys and the others, only certain numbers don't work shop is now closed so thought i'd give u guys a try

problem sorted dozy idiot was putting in the serial number not the authentication number, apparently manufacturers disable all other keys except the ones needed for the correct number.
