If it's an OEM license that came with the laptop when you bought it, it's tied to the machine and dies with the machine. So then the value is exactly 0.

If it's a retail version, it's not worth much, since nobody wants Vista since Windows 7 came out in 2010.

in your first post you wrote you're a teacher busy starting a computer/laptop/tablet shop. So why not sell it in your own shop?

The fact that it's linked to the hardware is one of the reasons that such an OEM Windows is much cheaper than a retail version that can be moved to another machine.

The other reason is that the OEM is supposed to support it, not Microsoft itself.

if the software not work can still re install, but I'm referring to not work is because in the slam destroyed by my son.
and I think it is possible only license that can be saved and can be sold (maybe) ... but after reading the replies I was wrong Grin

If you look around Ebay you see folks selling off laptop parts. It may sound incredible but you can find bits that you would never expect to have value to be out there.
