    I have already tried reinstalling windows.  I also tried http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=69498. I have tried http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=50346 but when I put in my product key it saids " The product key entered is not a valid key for this system. Please check it for spelling errors and try again. " I have checked it again and again and I have made no spelling errors. Please help me.

  • Lanh,

    The current Product Key being used on your system is non-genuine for one of two reasons:

    - The key was made using a non-Microsoft sanctioned Key Generator

    - The key was reported lost or stolen from the original purchaser.


    Can you verify that your COA matches your Product Key? If it does not you can try the following:


    1 - Reinstall Windows so your COA matches your Product Key (install using your COA as the Product Key) - This is the preferred method by Microsoft, as it will be a fresh copy, void of potential hacked binary files and security loops that may have been created to bypass WGA. We know this is usually not the user preference, but it is the safest method.


    The Genuine Advantage Product Key Update Tool is only valid for users attempting to change their current non-genuine Product Key to a genuine COA sticker or genuine Product Key – all without a reinstall! http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=50346&clcid=0x409

     Note: This is provided no core system files are corrupted. If they are you will need to complete a clean install of your system.



               If your COA does match the product key being used on your system I recommend filing a counterfeit report, it MAY be a high quality counterfeit (which MAY qualify you for a *free* WGA kit) – Counterfeit report is located here: http://www.microsoft.com/piracy/Reporting.mspx
