  • Question

  • I have Win XP Pro SP2 installed in my PC. the OS was bought as a separate stand alone copy when i bought my Lenovo Desk top last Aug 06. The OS was installed by me and successfully registered and validated on line with microsoft. I have kept the automatic updates enables and for the last more than 15 months things were moving smoothly. I was away for ten days. When I returned on 23/11/07 and connectd to internet sone automatic updates were installed. Thereafter I have started getting the validation failure message. I paste the MGA Diag below:

    The Product key mentioned in the diagnosis does not tally with the product key number mentioned in my COA. It appears that the key number has somehow been overwritten. How to resolve this issue S.Mahadeven

  • A "Blocked VLK" is a Volume License Key that is valid, but was licensed solely to a corporation or larger enterprise/business. Blocked VLK's are Product Keys that Microsoft has received consent from the original owner to block usage of. A VL Product Key is non-transferrable to individuals.


    In order to resolve your non-genuine licensing issue, please visit: www.microsoft.com/genuine and click on "Validate Windows". When validation fails, click on the Get Genuine button which will provide information on your options which include how to acquire a WGA Kit.


    In addition, your installed copy of Microsoft Office is non-genuine ( Office Status: 108 Invalid VLK).

    For more information, visit http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/ and click on Validate Office.
