Windows Vista Validation Status: Invalid License Invalid Product Key

    Question

  • I have read through most of the previously answered questions related to this issue, but I am still unable to make this work. I have tried most of the previous suggestions but I cannot get past the enter product key screen (says invalid and I don't believe it came with a disk). This laptop is about 3 years old and I have never had this issue until recently. (Acer Aspire 6930 laptop).

    Is there anything else I can try? What should be my next step? I think I will have to change the OEM to the COA, but I don't think I have this. Please see the Diagnostics Report below.

    Thank you for your help,

    Nattybel

    A friend did it, he said he knew what he was doing...apparently not!

    The only numbers I can find are the s/n, SNID and the only number on the battery is 22 digits long and contains 0's (which I don't think are usually in product keys)I have looked all over the laptop, inside and out. If I have to buy a new product key, is there anything I need to do to my laptop before I install it?

    Oh my. :(
    Your machine should at least have a sticker on it for Windows Vista (is there nothing on the case?)
    Don’t look at the battery – look in the hole it came out of!
    If you buy a new license, it’s likely to have to be a FULL retail license, rather than an Upgrade license – which is perhaps a $100 difference, so make certain!
     
    If you do need to purchase a new license, you should (even if the system says not) back up ALL your data to external media first.

    The Key in use here is from a DELL machine – no wonder it won’t self-activate!
    Please check the case of your machine for the COA sticker (it may be hidden inside the battery compartment), and attempt to change it.
     
    How was this machine reinstalled last time? – at a shop, or by a friend, or what??

  • I don't see a sticker (other than the s/n sticker) anywhere on the laptop (inside or out). Just wanted to cover everything possible before I spent the money on a new license. Thank you so much for your help!!

    Ouch :(
    That means that you will have to purchase a Full Retail license for Windows – I would recommend running the Upgrade advisor, and checking that the hardware is OK for Windows 7, and then purchasing that (but it could almost be cheaper to buy a new laptop with Win7 preinstalled, and sell the old one as OS-free after wiping the drive)
