    Missing 2 digits on product key sticker

    I bought a retail of Windows Vista Ultimate from Newegg. Part of the product
    key sticker is ripped off and I'm missing the last 2 digits. I don't even
    know how to contact MS support because they ask for a PID and I can't find
    that on the box or anything. All I have is the disks, Certificate of
    Authenticity, and the product key with 2 missing digits. What do I do?

    Well I got it online so it shipped to me, and Newegg doesn't take software
    returns.
    I did find the "Windows Vista Validation Issues" site
    (http://forums.microsoft.com/Genuine/...1004&SiteID=25)
    so I'll see what they say first.

    Hi,

    Contact Newegg and tell them the package is damaged and that you did not
    recieve a full Product key. They need to replace it. If they do not, then
    contact your credit card company and have the payment withheld.
