HELP WITH VALIDATION RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    I haven't used this computer since college and I'm just trying to install my ipod on my computer and it says i need SP2.  So i've been trying to do that for hours and it keeps telling me that my "Product Key may not be valid".  So I was talking to a chat representative from microsoft "Sandy" and she said to use this site for Developers and IT Professionals that did not have to be validated, so I downloaded that which took forever and then again an error popped up which said "Product Key may not be valid, visit www.howtotell.com" .

    I Paid for this computer and the software when I bought it from Best Buy, I'm really frustrated and just want to update this thing so I can use a simple MP3 player...

    PLEASE HELP ME ASAP.

     

    I do not have the original CD that came with this computer, I already checked... somebody out there has to have a way to help me use MY software on MY computer although microsoft seems eager to make that difficult.

    Right now, your vprMatrix  computer has a Volume Licensing edition of XP Pro installed (Line 10), and that installation was done with a now-blocked Volume Licensing Key (VLK) (Line 2).  VLKs are blocked by Microsoft at the request of the original keyholder for such reasons as the key was lost, stolen, compromised, misused, or expired.  Also, MS may have blocked the key if it notices a pattern of misuse, ie, more installations of XP using that key than authorized.

     

    If you search the forum for the part of the VLK reported by the mgadiag utility, YXRKT-8TG6W-2B7Q8, you will see that many, many other posters have submitted reports with that same blocked VLK.

     

    As a rule, VL editions of XP should not be sold to individual consumers.  Businesses, schools and gov'ts normally use VL editions for flexibility in installing many computers.

     

    This is why you were seeing the "software counterfeiting" messages on your computer, because the current installation of XP is an unauthorized installation.

     

    Some more bad news:  The installation of Office XP Pro on the computer is Nongenuine (Office Status:  114 means Nongenuine).  If this comes as a surprise to you, please return to the place of purchase and demand that you be given the genuine software you paid for, or a refund.  In any case, please remove the nongenuine installation of Office from your computer.

     

    Luckily, the solution to your problem is simple but laborious.  Use the recovery solution supplied by vprMatrix to replace the nongenuine installation of XP Pro with the genuine original installation of XP which was on your computer when you purchased it new.  Be sure to back up and offload your data before you do this because typically the recovery process destroys all data on the hard disk.

     

    If you do not have the Recovery CD supplied by vprMatrix, try contacting them thru their web site here:  http://www.vprmatrix.com/index.asp  If they cannot help you, try http://www.restoredisks.com

  • Also, what is the best way to go back to normal on this PC without losing any data or restoring? can I just install a XP Home CD and then type in the product key on the side of my computer when prompted?
