What do i do?? I installed it fine, and then had to re-install it due to problems with the game. THen i found out i had misplaced my manual with the cd key on it. How do i carry on playing, on the internet????????:micro:
If you can prove to EA that you own the original game, they will give you a new one within 24 hours. This usually involves teling them the serial number off your CD etc... or a photocopy of it. They then ban the original key, and send a new one out, preventing people from phtocpying their friends cd's and playing online with a pirated copy. However, they also appear to have measures in place preventing cheaters globally banned from obtaining new CD keys. Just incase ur not telling us the entire truth :P Personally I had my CD-KEY stolen by a rouge program a good year ago, and have recently been banned by punkbuster. EA arn't especially helpfull, but I bet they hear loads of BS stories from cheaters, so I cant blame them. Contact EA customer services, via the EA website.
Call EA for a new one!
You need to contact EA via phone or e-mail. A rep will tell you exactly what you need to do. Good luck!
Thats it really.
umm... the cd key is on back of the case.. not the manual.
actually in the uk its on the bck of the manual,
oh weird never new that lol...
yeah its a pain too cause if its on the box u lose the box and know were the book is and if its on the book its the other way round,
If its installed you can find your CD key in the system registry Start> run> regedit then go to HKEY_lOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > ELECTRONIC ARTS > EA GAMES> BATTLEFIELD 1942 > ERGC
