Windows Validation (No longer valid) RRS feed

  • Question

  • My computer was given to me by someone I no longer talk to. Windows was valid then, but I had to reinstall it. Now it says it is no longer valid. I can not afford to purchase Windows 7 again. Is there anything I can do?

  • To properly analyze and solve problems with Activation and Validation, we need to see a full copy of the diagnostic report produced by the MGADiag tool (download and save to desktop - http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 )

    Once downloaded, run the tool.

    Click on the Continue button, after a short time, the Continue button will change to a Copy button.

    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 post.
