Sudden Windows Vista Activation Request

    Question

  • Hello,

    I took my battery out and put it back in, and on the subsequent reboot I suddenly got a message asking me to activate my Windows Vista. Now my product key is sitting in my apartment in the US, while I'm out of the country for a while and have no access to it. There is no sticker bearing the key on my original HP built windows vista laptop either. Please help me out.

    The following is the diagnostic log after running the MGADiag.exe for your reference. I'd appreciate any help, thank you very much.

  • The problem is that your system is unable to properly read the BIOS SLIC table that should be present in the system to be able to self-activate the OS.  

     

     You need to change the Product Key to the one on the COA sticker on the machine's case, using the Change Product Key link at the bottom of the System properties page.

     

    You may need to activate by phone.   

     

    Once complate , please post a new MGADiag report so we can check it.

  • You appear to have a number of problems -

    The major problem appears to be in the Licensing Store - please try the following.....

     

    Recreate the Licensing Store with the correct 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. 

     

    You may be asked to enter your COA Key and/or Activate. – if asked for the Key, use the one on your COA sticker on the machine’s case (you may need to activate by telephone).  

     

    Once complete, run another MGADiag report and post back with the results.

  • Thank you for your quick reply Noel. I had tried this already after reading it here, before I posted the original post. Anyway I did it again exactly as per the instructions and I have posted the MGADiag report results below.

    I do have a genuine COA sticker complete with the 'label not to be sold separately' on my machine's case but it either doesn't have a serial on it, or the numbers have been smudged beyond readability. My laptop is 3 years old.

    Anyway here are the results of the report, not sure if its still the same or new. Thank you once again!

  • I must also mention that I switched from my standard US power supply 110 V input laptop charger to a original HP standard India power supply 220 V input charger and ever since then, as soon as my laptop boots to the HP screen, before Windows loads, I get a 'serial number not found' message at the top left of the screen. However, Windows was working fine for two weeks, before I pulled out my battery and ran into the activation issue. This may have nothing to do with Microsoft.

    Thank You.

  • Sorry - I seem to have missed that you said that the COA sticker was unreadable....

    There *may* be an alternative solution, if you are patient and persistent.

    Attempt Telephone Activation, and speak to an operator - they will tell you that your current Key
    is blocked (they should then ask for confirmation of your Product Key). Explain
    to them your problem, that you need to change the Key to the one on your sticker,
    but that the sticker is unreadable (could they please supply a replacement
    Key?). Hopefully they will ask for documentary proof of the sticker, in the
    form of an email with a picture of the affected sticker - and you can proceed from there.

    Sometimes it takes two or three calls before you get an operator who actually knows and uses this
    procedure - but I know that it can and does happen.
