Windows Vista / Activation problem? Compaq laptop - owned for many years.

    Question

  • I have no idea what to do, out of the blue my sons laptop suddenly would not let him log into windows and said his copy of vista was not valid after YEARS. I did an OEM system restore and now it says the product key is invalid? I used the OEM restoration program - same copy of windows that has been on this pc for many many years trying to get it back working as I did not know if it was a virus or what which did not work. What gives? Also the product key on the bottom of this old thing is totally warn off. Wish they made them durable. Any help is appreciated!

  • Your problem is that for some reason, the system is unable to properly read the SLIC table in the BIOS, which is required to be able to self-activate the OEM_SLP Key with which the computer came installed.

    The normal solution is to change the Key to the one on your COA sticker - but you say that you are unable to read the Key there.

    In such circumstances, the only things you can do are

    1) recreate the Licensing Store - in case it's a minor software problem causing the misread
    2) try updating the BIOS to the latest available Vista-compliant one, from the manufacturer's website
    3) Contact the manufacturer direct, and see if they can provide assistance to correct the SLIC table
    4) a reformat and reinstall using the manufacturer's recovery media
    5) purchase a new license for Windows (or a new computer)   

    Options 1 and 4 you've already tried ( #1 by default)

    that leaves the others.

    Option 3 is likely to be the most expensive (apart from purchasing a new computer) - I have heard of manufacturers charging £250 for a 'repair' which should take 5 minutes!

  • The problem is that your system is unable to properly read the BIOS SLIC table that should be present in the system to be able to self-activate the OS.  

     You need to change the Product Key to the one on the COA sticker on the machine's case, using the Change Product Key link at the bottom of the System properties page. You may need to activate by phone.   

    Once complete, run another MGADiag report and post back with the results.

  • That will be a problem, the COA sticker is pretty much totally warn off. I cannot make out a single digit on the label.
