Windows 7 machine randomly deactivated the Windows license RRS feed

  • Question

  • One of the Windows 7 Professional machines in my business deactivated the license, for no apparent reason.

    I had the user try to enter the Windows product key into the Activation window, and it looked like the process was working, but then the scroll bar got close to the very end, then stalled out.  The user has waited at least 30min. but still not finishing.  How can we get this machine back up and running?

  • MGA Diagnostic Report:

    To properly analyze and solve problems with Activation and Validation, we need to see a full copy of the diagnostic report produced by the MGADiag tool (download and save to desktop -http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 )

    Once downloaded, run the tool.
    Click on the Continue button, after a short time, the Continue button will change to a Copy button.
    Click on the Copy button in the tool (ignore any error messages at this point), and then paste (using either r-click/Paste, or Ctrl+V ) into your post.

    One Issue Per Thread:

    Most Activation and Validation issues look the same, on the surface, but can have many different causes and fixes. This is why we ask for a diagnostic report and this is also why we ask that you create your own thread for your issue (in other words, don't post your issue in another person's thread). 

    It just becomes too complicated to try to troubleshoot multiple different issues in the same thread.
