Dell XPS getting intermittent validation errors 0x80070426 RRS feed

  • Question

  • After running fine for a couple of months, fo the past few days I started getting validation errors. I get either the flavor where only the validation error popup occurs and the rest of the screen is black or a more thorough logon where I get the Windows Aero is disabled.


    Reading other threads, I checked the status of the slsvc. It is not running and I get this error when trying to start it:


    C:\Stuff>net start slsvc
    The Software Licensing service is starting.
    The Software Licensing service could not be started.

    A system error has occurred.

    System error 54273 has occurred.

    The system cannot find message text for message number 0xd401 in the message fil
    e for BASE.


    If I try to start it from the mgmt console I get error 0xc004d401.



    Here's the WGA output:

  • Hi Jeff,


    I sent you an e-mail earlier today.  The e-mail support agent with whom you're in contact may have closed your case, but I certainly haven't.  I'm still working with you.  I'm sorry for the confusion.

  • None of those things seem to be it. I do have PC-Cillin Internet Security but it is version 14.60.1195 and has been installed for a since I upgraded to Vista. I uninstalled it and the problem is still there. But now that I've played around too much I've lost the last good restore point and can no longer get a good boot.


    I'm trying to open a service request but I'm getting an unknown error when I try to submit the request,

  • Could someone help me. A support engineer contacted me via e-mail last week requesting additional information. I e-mailed her back with what she had requested (at least what I was able to get). After two days I finally heard back. But her e-mail just said she hadn't heard from me and wondered what was happening. I replied again. Then I forwarded my original response. I had also forwarded to her the spsys.log that was requested by a program manager in response to my posting here.


    This morning I got an e-mail from the original support engineer saying that since she hadn't heard from me, she was closing the ticket. Very frustating! Is there any other way to contact support? I know my e-mail is working since the e-mail with the spsys.log file was acknowledged by the program manager that requested it and the support person was cc-ed.
