Windows Not Genuine......Activate Windows.... Help Please.

    Question

  • Hi,

    I purchased my PC from PC World 2 years ago so I know the Windows Vista on it is genuine. A couple of months ago I got a black screen with "Windows not genuine" in the right hand corner. Everything was running fine so I ignored it as I know nothing about computers.

    Yesterday I was notified of Updates so I updated & now my system is asking me to validate windows. However when I go to the validation screen it won't load properly & redirects to the bling search engine page.

    I changed my case last year so I no longer have the sticker that has my key on it, (although to be honest I don't remember it being ther anyway). So even if I get past the validation I don't have a key.

    I have run the diagnostic test & got this:

    Please can anyone help me as I really cannot afford to put my computer into the repair shop & it's only a matter of time (I presume) where my screen goes blank as I can't validate Windows.

    Thank you in advance for any help.

  • Hello mamaden,

     

      The only issue I see is that Windows is currently not activated.  To activate, you will need to use the By Phone method.  To do that, click the Start button, type: slui 4 hit enter and follow the prompts.

     

      If that doesn't work for some reason, please try the below steps to reset Vista's Licensing store

    1) Open an Internet Browser window.
    2) Type: %windir%\system32 into the browser address bar.
    3) Find the file CMD.exe
    4) Right-Click on CMD.exe and select 'Run as Administrator'
    5) Type: net stop slsvc   (it may ask you if you are sure, select yes)
    6) Type: cd %windir%\ServiceProfiles\NetworkService\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\SoftwareLicensing
    7) Type: rename tokens.dat tokens.bar
    8) Type: cd %windir%\system32
    9) Type: net start slsvc
    10) Type: cscript slmgr.vbs -rilc (It may take a long time for this to complete, please be patient)
    11) Restart your computer twice.
    12) You may be required to enter the Product Key and/or Activate (By Phone).

     

    Thank you,

    Please repost your own problem - with details and an MGADiag report - to your OWN NEW thread - this avoids confusion.
    To properly analyse and solve problems with Activation and Validation, we need to see a full copy of the report produced by the MGADiag tool (download and save to desktop - http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 )
    Once saved, run the tool.
    Click on the Continue button, which will produce the report.
    To copy the report to your response, click on the Copy button in the tool (ignore any error messages at this point), and then paste (using either r-click/Paste, or Ctrl+V ) into your response.
