Vista not genuine?

    Question

  • I also have a Dell with Vista system.  I have had the message with "This Copy of Windows is Expired, Build 6002" for weeks now.  I just tried this with the OEM number and it won't let you.  I had tried this once before with the product key # off of my computer and it said it was an incorrect number.  I verified it twice.  Now I don't know what to do.  Any thoughts?

    To properly analyse and solve problems with Activation and Validation, we need to see a full copy of the report produced by the MGADiag tool
    (download and save to desktop - http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 )
     Once saved, run the tool.
    Click on the Continue button, which will produce the report.
     To copy the report to your response, 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 response.

    Please also state the Version and Edition of Windows quoted on your COA sticker (if you have one) on the case of your machine (or inside the battery compartment), but do NOT quote the Key on the sticker!
