Windows 8 help

This is going to be an old and some what lame out of date question so bear with my stupidity! Ive got a PC that I picked up matter of fact a HP Laptop! Its currently running Windows 8 64bit! Its asking me to update to Windows 8.1 which Im willing to do until I can afford to buy Windows 10! My question is when I update it where do I find a new key to install since Im assuming the Windows 8 key I have wont work with 8.1! Could someone be so kind to tell me how to perform this function! LOL because I dont have a clue??? Yall can LOL at me later HaHa just need some help hopefully Windows 8.1 will run better! Thanks guys any help will be appreciated!

Going from 8 to 8.1 should

Going from 8 to 8.1 should not need a key.  If you run into problems you can always go back to the image HP has on the drive. (Factory reset.)

Help Windows

Hey Bob I want to thank you for your responce all this time I was confused whether in fact when I done the update from Win 8 to 8.1 that it needed a differant code so I thank you for clearing this up WORKS Great! Thanks again! Will checkout Win 10 in the future probably Im curious how it performs also and curious how many of you Guys are using it and how it performs ! All you guys that are using Wins 10 feel free to jump in and give your opinion if you have the time! Thanks Bill  (AMD Crankitup)
