Validation issues after a difficult install of sevice pack 2 (Vista) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a Dell Inspiron 1520 that belonged to my daughter. She finally gave up on it because of blue screens. After uninstalling a few gigs of absolute crap programs she had downloaded and installed on it, it's perfectly fine now. But, service pack 2 would not install. The obvious answer from the KB is the system update readiness tool. No luck, the install of service pack 2 still wouldn't work. I did further research and found KB 977893. That didn't work UNTIL I first installed that hotfix then installed the system update readiness tool. So it only worked when I installed the hotfix and the readiness tool in that order. Then I could get SP2 to install correctly. Now, about a month later, I'm getting a pop-up telling me that I've entered an invalid product key for activation. The product key is plainly on the sticker Dell put on the bottom of the laptop when we bought it. It has been activated for years, but now it seems to want to activate again (there have been no hardware changes). So this copy of Vista doesn't seem to recognize it's legit product ID. I suspect it's because of the problems and solutions I had to go through to get SP2 to install correctly, but no idea how to fix it. EzzyB

  • Hi EzzyB,

    OK, good.  That should make the resolution a lot easier.

    It appears that Visa's Licensing Store file may be corrupt or it's Data is messed up in some way (relatively common issue and easy to fix). Just follow the below steps to recreate the Store and it's Data.

    1) Open an Internet Browser window.
    2) Type: %windir%\system32 into the browser address bar.
    3) Find the file CMD.exe
    4) Right-Click on CMD.exe and select Run as Administrator
    5) Type: net stop slsvc   (it may ask you if you are sure, select yes)
    6) Type: cd %windir%\ServiceProfiles\NetworkService\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\SoftwareLicensing
    7) Type: rename tokens.dat tokens.bar
    8) Type: cd %windir%\system32
    9) Type: net start slsvc
    10) Type: cscript slmgr.vbs -rilc (It may take a long time for this to complete, please be patient)
    11) Restart your computer twice.
    12) You may be required to enter the Product Key and/or Re-activate. Be sure to use the Product Key listed on the sticker on the side, bottom or (for some laptops) in the battery compartment of the PC and to Activate using the By Phone method.

  • For the best support you need to run the MGAdiag tool.

    Download and run the Genuine Diagnostics tool found at this link http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012

      Run the Tool, click "Continue" then click the "Copy" (ignore any error messages that may appear) button. Return to your Thread and Paste the report into the thread along with a detailed description of the issue you are experiencing.

    OK, this is the one, sorry about that.  Interesting seeing the Dell stuff on the XP machine seeings as how I built it myself.   Anyway all my MS programs are legit as far as I know.  How do I make this Genuine Advatage stuff stop popping up?  This is the correct machine that I should have run the diagnostics on.

  • OK, I originally wrote a response based on the fact that you said you built this computer yourself. however, I go back and reread your posts and see that this is a Dell Laptop.

    This actually makes a big difference when interpreting your Diagnostic Report and providing the correct information to resolve your issue.

    I also read  that the issue is with Windows XP, yet the above Diagnostic Report is from Windows Vista.

    Would you clarify

    1) that the computer that is experiencing the issue is a Dell PC or a hand-made PC?

    2) that the above Diagnostic Report is, in fact, taken from the PC that is experiencing the Non-Genuine issue?

    3) that the computer experiencing the issue is running Windows XP or Windows Vista?

     

    Thank you,

  • Sorry, ignore the first diagnostic. It is a PC I built myself. I wasn't thinking and ran the diagnostic on my PC instead of my wife's laptop. The laptop is a Dell Inspiron 1520 The SECOND diagnostic paste is for that Dell laptop that is having the problem. It is running Vista Home Premium (factory installed from Dell) with all patches etc except as noted in the original post where I had to apply the hotfix and update prep tool to get SP2 to install. Thanks! EzzyB

  • Thank you Darin. That was a bit tedious but it seemed to fix the issue. Please copy and paste this response to your boss, and his boss, and his boss as well. I'm a support technician (well currently unemployed) and this is just something I haven't seen before. You were completely professional in your responses and I've enjoyed working with you on this problem. I think it's a bit funny that I often find myself surrounded by the Linux/Open Office crowd. They just don't realize how important SUPPORT is and you are very good at it! EzzyB

  • FYI I don't normally use this laptop but I have been today (watching TV for news about the quake, my wife is half-Japanese so she has family there). No more issues, not sure if you open tickets on these things but if you did you can close it, no more problems. EzzyB

  • Hello EzzyB,

    Glad we could get the issue fixed for you!

     

    And Thank you very much for the complement, I have forwarded it on as you requested.
