win 7 Validation issues RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm repairing a neighbour's 13 year old son's laptop. The machine was bought new from on of the largest retailers in the UK, and has always been fine until recently.

    He's on a school trip to France at the moment (that's why I was given it to look at) so I can't ask him questions till the end of the week, but the laptop is I believe about 2.5 years old, runs Home Premium 7, and has never been back to the retailer for any repairs. However recently (I believe a few weeks ago, but I need to clarify this) he started getting messages saying the software was not genuine. As most kids do, he soon found out that the message went away after a while and he ignored it till he could be away from his laptop on his school trip to France.

    The lad is not a computer expert, so I do not think he has been messing round with the settings, but of course, who knows what so called friends may do.

    So I've run the diagnostics tool, and I get this result

    Step 2 is to look on the computer itself, in the documentation you received with the computer or with your retail purchase of Windows to see if you have a Certificate of Authenticity (COA).  If you have one, tell us about the COA.  Tell us:

    1.  The Label is almost completely obliterated by wear and tear. I can just about make out 21 of the 25 digits of the Code on the COA. I can see bits of the missing letters, and may be able to get it by trial and error. Not sure if it is meant to be the same code as the "Windows Product Key: *****-*****-73CQT-WMF7J-3Q6C9" quoted in the report, but it is different.

    2.  Does it read "OEM Software" or "OEM Product" in black lettering? I cannot see

    3.  Or, does it have the computer manufacturer's name in black lettering? I cannot see

    Not sure if it helps, but the laptop is a Compaq, retailed by a major high street name in the UK.

    Any help you can give would be welcome.

    Thanks

    I'm going to take the laptop into a design studio with top quality lighting and see if we can get a better view on the missing characters.

    More to come

    To answer your numbered points....
    1) this is normal for machines from large manufacturers
    2) Not really relevant
    3) Doesn't matter :)
     
    The problem is that the OEM_SLP Key used by major manufacturers when installing their machines uses data from the BIOS SLIC table in order to self-activate. The SLIC table in your machine appears to be corrupted somehow - or at least the OS thinks it is.
     
    The normal solution is to change the Product Key to the one on the sticker, which doesn't rely on the SLIC table.
     
    You say that you can read all but 4 characters of the COA sticker Key - have you tried a bright light and magnifier? (I find a torch at a very shallow angle works wonders)
    If you can make educated guesses at the remaining 4, then the variables become manageable - but you're really stretching it.
    To help, there are a number of 'disallowed' characters for Keys - they are
    E U I O A S L Z N and 1 0
    This does at leas bring it down to a maximum of 25 possibilities per lost character - or roughly 400,000 options for 4 characters. If you can bring it down to 2 characters with say 4 possibles, and 2 with say 10 possibles, this bring the options down to a more manageable 1600 :)
    In real terms, if you can get it down to 2 characters, you have a chance.
     
    If you cannot do that, your best option is to attempt a System Recovery using the manufacturer's Recovery media, and hope that the problem is with the OS, rather than the BIOS itself
     
    The only other option is to attempt a BIOS refresh using the latest update from the manufacturer for that machine model.
     
     
    If all the above fail, then you will have to purchase a new Full Retail license for Windows 7 Home Premium, and use the Key from that to make the system genuine.

  • Thanks for such a prompt reply, and such a helpful one.

    When i said I couldn't read 4 of the numbeers I didn't give you quite the whole story. There is enough there to eliminate certain characters. The suggestion of the torch also helped. So as a result, I think I'm down to just 1 character, and I can see that it has aleast a partial vertical line. Your help with the excluded nos gives me just 11 (I think) that it could be.

    Off to try and change it and will let you know the outcome.

    Once again thanks for your help. It really is much appreciated.

  • Well there's a surprise. It didn't work first time.

    Its after midnight here, and the eyes are struggling under artificial light. I'll see what the daylight brings in the morning!
