I'm suddenly getting a "Validation Failure" and "bloked VLK" error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there, I'm running Windows Xp Pro 2002, and have been for some time, however a couple weeks ago I started getting "your version of windows may not be genuine" notice on start-up, and periodically thereafter. I read a few FAQs and ran the MGA diagnostic tool and found out I've got a blocked VLK, I just don't know how to fix it. Can anyone help me out?

  • Hello Cynystasia,

    The mgadiag utility says that the motherboard in the computer is reporting itself as a Compaq motherboard.

    If you had the Certificate of Authenticity that was affixed to the original Compaq/HP computer case, and the CoA said that the original Windows that was on this computer was XP Pro, then you could have used the product key updater utility to "genuine-ize" the current nongenuine installation of XP Pro.

    If the CoA is not available, then the best you can hope for now is to run the Compaq supplied Recovery Solution to put the original Genuine installation of Windows back onto the computer.

    Otherwise, you'll need to purchase a genuine license for Windows to continue to legitimately run Windows on this computer.

  • Hellu cynystasia,

    The mgadiag report is showing that this may be a Compaq computer.

    Does the computer have a Certificate of Authenticity (CoA) for Windows affixed to it?  If so, please tell us what version and edition of Windows is listed on the CoA.  Does the CoA have "Compaq" or "HP" or "HPQ" printed on it in black lettering?  Do not post the product key.

  • No, there's no CoA. It was my brothers, he bought a fancy new "shell" (?) for the desktop a year or so ago, so there's no stickers on this one. Does that mean I'm SOL?
