  • Question

  • The MGA diagnostics is as follows:
    This is a OEM version that I purchased from NewEgg.com, and put it on my sister's computer which was built by me. 
    Notice the diagnostics says the OS version is XP pro however, the version on the computer is home, the disk says home, and it loads up and says home.

  • Hello Jones,

     

    Thank you for posting your diagnostic information. We are sorry to hear about the problem your currently experiencing. Diagnostic results help our team in determining the root cause of your issue. The Windows XP Professional and product key installed on this computer was not assigned by Microsoft. The key is counterfeit and was most likely generated by a key generator. The product key found on your computer has been detected on multiple computers. Product keys are only allowed to be used on one computer unless otherwise specified in the end user licensing agreement (EULA).   Office Professional Edition 2003 product key installed on this computer is a blocked Volume Licensing Key (VLK) You will find numerous sites where this key has been posted.  Use your favorite search engine and paste in the product key.  Below could be a possible scenario.   

     

                There are situations which can cause Windows and Office to become non-genuine. Let me give one example.  Customers have taken in their systems along with all the software received when purchasing their system. The customer picks up the system and viola' no problems whatsoever until they need to download an update or even a template used with MS Office. Suddenly their system is non-genuine. The customer's computer was not installed with their software but either a blocked Volume Licensing Key (VLK) or a keygen’d product key. Also the software could work for several weeks, months or even a year or more then suddenly becomes blocked. 

     This is why you may be seeing the "Software Counterfeiting" messages on your computer. You will need to uninstall (Place OS and/or Office Version Here) before any further complications occur from being non-genuine. As a customer there are several options available for you to get Genuine. For details on the ways to “Get Genuine”, see the web page that outlined your validation failure details or http://www.microsoft.com/genuine .  It will provide all of the possible steps which you can take. Also please review the Validation Advisor for further guidance at:

    https://www.microsoft.com/genuine/selfhelp/ValidationHelp.aspx

     

    First, if this comes as a total surprise to you, please visit the retailer where you purchased the computer or operating system and let them know the operating system is a counterfeit copy.  Please print a copy of the diagnostic report so you may show them proof for the VLK status. Request they immediately reimburse you and/or provide a Genuine Copy.

     

    Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA) is here to help protect YOU, our valued customer. It is important for more people like you, who have become victims, to report piracy @ http://www.microsoft.com/piracy/default.mspx  . Microsoft legal will follow up on all leads provided.  Submitting piracy reports will assist in stopping unscrupulous business practices.  You may be eligible for free software if you have high quality counterfeit discs. 

     

                     Again, we are sorry to hear about your situation. Please be sure to backup or otherwise offload any data from the hard disk because a clean installation/reimaging will destroy all personal user data on the hard drive. Please don't hesitate re-posting if you need further assistance.

     

     

    Thank you,

  • Jones,

     

    Curious, has the computer been turned in for any repairs whatsoever after built the system? Was there a possibility anyone else besides you has done any work such as reinstalling the operating system? Please let me know. 

     

     

    Thank you,

    In response to that, no Stephen..the computer has only been worked on by me, and I am utterly baffled by the blocked VLK issue...I have used Newegg several times in the past and have never had issues with any of their OEM software. Also, as I mentioned in my first post, the diagnostics lists the OS as the professional edition when the disc lists it as home edition.  In addition to that, the system information also shows that she is running Windows XP home edition. I am not sure if this is an issue or not, and I have discovered it would be rather difficult for me to get my money back from newegg at this point in time. 



    To refresh your memory here is the diagnostics again
