Key is invalid for Activaton RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi my laptop has recently started playing up and giving me the error that my Windows Vista needs to be activated I have been running it in reduced functionality for a while but have finnaly now tried to resolve the issue I have now formatted my laptop and reloaded it with the product key that I found using Magic jelly keyfinder as my sticker has peeled off and been destroyed thinking that a format woud fix the issue but upon trying to activate the key its gives me the error "The Windows Vista Home Premium Product Key you typed is invalid for activation" and does not give me the option to activate by telephone so cant even call to try and resolve the issue.

    Below is the log that you need, I have tried to go to www.microsoft.com/validate but before I get the chance to install the activeX controller it redirects me to http://search.microsoft.com/?mkt=en-us not sure why this keeps happening but its not working for me.

    Pleae let me know if you want me to post any more info.

  • It looks as if you've reinstalled using a standard MS disk, rather than a manufacturer's Recovery disk.

    You need to get hold of Asus, and purchase a set of recovery disks and use them for a proper reversion to ex-factory state.

    Unfortunatey, even that may not solve the problem, as your BIOS appears to be missing th eproper SLIC table to be able to verify the certificates present in the factory installation. Have you updated the BIOS at all? If so, then it appears that the version with which you updated was not the correct one for your machone - again, contact Asus and see if they have another updated BIOS including the Vista SLIC table.

    In the absence of either of the above your only solution is likely to be purchasing a new copy of Windows from a reputable supplier - since Vista is no longer produced, you should take the opportunity to upgrade to Win7. Note that you would have to purchase a Full Retail pack of whichever edition of Win7 you decided upon, and do a clean install.
