  • Hello sherbo007,

     

      No need to worry, that is completly normal. Computers, that are built by large manufactures, that come with Vista Pre-Installed, come with two (2) Product Keys:

     

    1) OEM SLP: This key comes pre-installed in Vista, when it comes from the Factory. This key is geared to work with the special instructions found only on that Manufacturer's computer hardware. So when Vista was installed using the OEM SLP key (at the factory) Vista looks at the motherboard and sees the special instructions and Self-Activates. (that's why you did not need to Activate your computer when you brought it home)

     

    2) COA SLP: This is the Product key that you see on the sticker on the side (or bottom) of your computer. It is a valid product key, but should only be used in limited situations (such as in the rare event that the OEM SLP key, for some reason, stops working). The key must be manually activated, but you must Activate by Phone.

     

      You can see from your Diagnostic Report that your Vista currently has the OEM SLP Key (seen in your Diag report on line "Windows License Type: OEM SLP")

     

      If you are experiencing an Activation or Validation issue, please create a new forum thread, repost your Diagnostic Report and provide a description of the issue.

     

    Thank you,
