I think "it depends" is the only answer here. It depends on: - whether other versions of SQL have been installed - if so then it will be in there as subsequent versions dont install a new copy - what OS you have, it may be in Program Files or Program Files (x86)

Do you have any previous version of SQL Server installed?

This laptop probably did have 2005 on it in the past - I really can't remember. I do know that I've not done a proper rebuild in three years...
