Windows Vista Activation Problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've had my HP laptop for just under 2 years and it's been working perfectly fine until about 6 months ago I started getting that dreaded you're windows vista is not activated etc etc. After searching, I found out that I did not have the Service Pack 2 installed, so I installed that and it fixed the problem. Now the problem has come up again and after looking at numerous threads, I am not sure what the problem is this time. Whenever I try to validate it via the Validation website, it says please try again later or something along those lines. 

     

    Here's my diagnostic report:

    Hmm - the key should work, then.
    Make sure that you're reading it right - note that there is possible confusion between a number of characters....
    2/Z - 8/B - I/1 - O/0/Q/D - U/V
    etc.
    for this reason MS has 'disallowed' some of the characters, and using those characters can result in similar error messages to the one you are getting.
    (I can't remember the list of disallowed characters - but I believe that 0, O and U are three of them)

    The problem here is that for some reason, your Windows installation cannot read the SLIC table in the BIOS and match the data with its own certificates. This results in your error message.
     
    The fix is to change the product key in use to that on the COA sticker on the case. or to flash the BIOS with a version with the correct table.
    Flashing the BIOS is one of the few operations on a PC which can turn it into a large expensive doorstop - so it's to be avoided unless you know what you're doing.
    Changing the Key is simple and quick - assuming that the COA sticker on the case is
    a) readable
    and
    b) for the same version and edition of Windows as is installed
     
    You may need to Activate afterwards using telephone activation, and speak to an operator.

  • Ok. Thanks.

    I tried your change product key solution but it did not work. My laptop came with Vista pre installed. I can see the problem. The one that is entered into the system and the one I can see on the Computer properties is different to the one that is underneath my laptop. Underneath my laptop has a different product key code. Does this mean anything?

    When I try to enter that different code in, it says "The Product key you have entered does not appear to be a valid Windows Vista product key."

    Preinstalled Windows installations from major vendors come with two keys:-
     
    1) The OEM SLP Key (which is the one currently in use). This Key is the same for all installations on a given hardware set, and is owned by the OEM manufacturer. It is supposed to self-activate using the SLIC Table and built-in certificates.
    2) the COA SLP Key - the one on your sticker. This key is your personal License Key, and is ONLY valid on that particular PC.
     
    The version of Windows shown in the report is Vista - Home Premium is the 'edition'
    What version and edition of Windows is shown on the COA sticker on your machine?

  • Finally! I've fixed the problem. I accidently typed an "8" as a "B". :l

    Sorry to waste your time, it was my fault in the end but really, I thank you for your effort in helping me out. Thanks!
