Vista asking for new serial RRS feed

  • Question


    I had just got vista for one day and it worked perfectly, but now the problem is, that after restarting the computer, Vista is asking that I put in my serial AGAIN!!!! I had gotten rid of the product key, and don't want to buy vista again, I have vista home basic. This is the report that I'm getting "You must re-type your Windows Vista Home Basic product key to activate. You can find your product key sticker on your computer or on the installion disc holder inside the Windows Package.

    -Example Sticker-


    This computer was upgraded from a windows XP SP2, so, on the bottom, I only have my windows xp serial, and I don't want to go and buy windows vista again, just for the serial. I can't get any further than that message, and I really need to get on... I have school soon, and I need a computer for my studies,... I'm dissapointed that after putting in the activation key, that it's asking for it a second time... and now I'm stuck
