I have validation problems RRS feed

  • Question

  • i found out i had validation problems because i went to update my computer for programs lik media player and adobe flash player; basically anything off the microsoft website i cant install anything. i get error 0x80070005. because it said i didnt have the correct permissions i went to the registry edit and made sure i had all the correct permissions, which i did so i didnt change anything. Now i went to a message group typed in the error code to see if anyone had this problem and people suggested that i validate the comp thats how the problem was solved for them. then a whole new problem arised which was validation problems with error 0x80080296 which i assume is why my permissions are messed up. Please tell me what i can do because the Windows XP OS disc i have is genuwine when i recieved it it was brand new sealed in the wrap. i cant remember where the product info is but i did have it once.

    another problem that might be connected is on the server i guess its called says that there is a corrupt ip address on another comp which i assume is my comp. please help me idk wat to do i need my comp to work right for my job and internships

  • Hello takaiboo,

    Please refer to the link below and run the MGA Diagnostics tool:

     

    http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012

     

    You will be prompted to either “Run” or “Save” the tool. Choose to “Run” the tool and follow the on-screen prompts. You will receive an “Internet Explorer-Security Warning” dialog box for the “Windows Genuine Advantage Diagnostic Tool”; you must choose to “Run” this tool when prompted.

    If you cannot download the utility directly to the affected computer, visit the above link on another computer, choose Save instead of Run, and once downloaded and saved, move the utility to the affected cmputer with a flash drive, over a network, on a CD, etc.

     

    Once you are presented with the Diagnostics tool choose “Continue” to run the diagnostic report. If the “RESOLVE” button is available after running the diagnostics, please click “RESOLVE” to allow the diagnostic tool to attempt a repair.

     

    1.      After running the MGA Diagnostic tool, click on the “Windows” tab and then click on “Copy”.

    2.      Please return to this post and “Paste” the results here for additional review.

     

    Next 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.  What edition of Windows XP is it for, Home, Pro, or Media Center, or another version of Windows?

    2.  Does it read "OEM Software" or "OEM Product" in black lettering?

    3.  Or, does it have the computer manufacturer's name in black lettering?

    4.  DO NOT post the Product Key that may be printed on the CoA.

    Not sure what to look for?  See this page for reference:  http://www.microsoft.com/resources/howtotell/en/coa.mspx

     

    NOTE: The data collected with the Genuine Diagnostics Tool does NOT contain any information that can personally identify you and can be fully reviewed, by you, before being posted.
