Validation issue after MotherBoard swap in laptop... RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to validate my copy of Vista on a laptop I bought 2 years ago. The motherboard died and I had to replace it. Since it has had a hardware change I understand why it needs to re-validate my problem is that it won't except my key and I can't get the OS to give me a phone number and subsequently the numbers for calling and registering over the phone.

    I only get 3 options:

    Buy a new product key online
    Type a different product key
    Contact HP to help resolve this problem

    In XP, I could change a registry key that contained the OOBETimer and this would allow me to get the "call to validate" option how can I do this in Vista or how can I get Vista to give me the phone option to call and get this thing registered?

    thx,

    Problem solved.

    I simply went out to the web found a key code for my OS entered it and then I was able to go through the phone activation...

     


    Don't be surprised when next week, the computer tells you it's not genuine again, then!

  • After taking a quick look at the report I saw the serial number on the computer sticker is different than the one the report spit out why is that? Is the serial number embedded in the Motherboard or in the BIOS?

    You need to use the number on the Sticker - the COA SLP Key - it *may* work.
    The reason that the OEM SLP key wont work is because your replacement motherboard doesn't have the correct BIOS to go with the key to auto-activate, and it is not possible to phone-activate an OEM SLP key.

  • COA SLP Key? Is that the key on the underside of the laptop on the MS label?

    On a second note, can the BIOS on a laptop MB be swapped out similar to a desktop BIOS?

    No wonder people hack and cheat MS... :>(

    Thanks,

  • Yep!

    No - the BIOS is specific to ONE build of the motherboard - it's the lowest-level in the heirarchy of interfaces between you and the processor, and the BIOS is rewritten for each variaton in hardware on the board.

    I don't see what your problem has to do with hacking and cheating MS - they have a right to protect their intellectual property, just as you have the right to use other software if you don't like the way MS does business.

    What you do't have the right to do is steal intellectual property - and cracking Keys, etc is theft, pure and simple. It's not some quixotic fight against the giants, it's theft. It's not a fight for freedom - it's theft. It's not a game - it's theft.

    MS loses an immense amount of money to pirated software, and spends a large sum in tracking down and prosecuting the offenders - if there wasn't so much of it around, MS may not have to charge the high prices they do for software to recoup their R&D costs - so the pirates are stealing from the legitimate users as well.
