Windows 7 saying I need to validate after I activate RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've been using Windows 7 for a while now, and it suddenly says that it's not genuine. So I enter my product key, and now it says that I need to validate it.

    Though I bought it. Do I need to buy it again?

  • Thread Summery:

      *We have a computer that has a Windows 7 install using an OEM SLP key but the key is unable to Self-Activate the Windows because the required OEMM Bios Flag is not present.

      *The computer has a CoA sticker containing a Key that is not being accepted by Windows, for unknown reasons. 

      *This CoA Key is most likely Genuine however, I am unable to confirm it (thru the Forums) because you do not want to post a full Product key in a Public Forum.


    At this point KK9RC has a few options:

    1) Reinstall Windows using the disks included with the Computer and the Product key listed on the CoA sticker.

    or

    2) Contact Microsoft Assisted Support either using the link provided by Carey (for Chat Based  Support) or one of the below links (for Phone based support) in the hope they can supply a resolution that doesn't require reinstalling:

    Your installation of Windows 7 is based on an OEM_SLP Key  - such Keys are only issued to large OEMS for use in installing to their own manufacture, and are invalid on any other machines. They cannot be sold on the open market. Your machine appears to be a non-name self-build, using a retail motherboard.
    You were sold a counterfeit.
    You need to try  and claim a refund - and then purchase a legal Full Retail cop of Windows.

  • Noel,

    Interesting - I have no idea whether they qualify as a Large OEM, but I suspect that they do (one could wish they'd flag their systems better!)
    Can you confirm that the product Key you've been entering is NOT the same as the one quoted in your report?
    Note that  you need to change the Key to the one on your COA sticker - not just type in the same key again, as he OEM_SLP key in use here depends on a SLIC table in the BIOS which is missing (which is one more reason why I thought it was a retail board)
    Once you have the new Key in place , you will need to activate by phone.

  • Noel,

    I tried activating the computer through a keyfinder, but it came up with 'not a valid key'. So I tried the COA key but that didn't work either. I was confused, so I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the key. That didn't work either. I was forced to get a key off the Internet, and it activated successfully, but now it says it's not genuine.

    My COA key is XXXXX-XXXXX-C***2-TKWRC-BKF9W. The COA key is the key on the side of your computer, right?

    Please remove the first two groups from your COA key - it may be discoverable (and yes, the sticker on the side is the COA Sticker).
    Does the COA sticker  say that the OS is Windows 7 Home Premium, or something else?
    does it look like this
     
    or like this
     
    If the former - what manufacturer name is on it, and does it conform to the specs?
    If the latter, does it conform to the specifications?
     
    The Keyfinder will only show the OEM_SLP Key currently in use - which cannot be activated over the internet or the phone (I'm not sure whether it is an 'allowed' key for input)
    You need to change the Key to the one on the sticker.

    That explains why the OEM_SLP key doesn't work then :)
    Like I say, you need to change the Key to the one on your sticker, and try internet activation
    run another MGADiag report, and post it back in your response

    What's the EXACT wording?
    Check that you are entering the right characters - some are easily confused. Use a bright light and magnifier (I usually carry a torch just for that), and/or get someone else to read them.
    ('O' does not exist - it's a 'Q' -  check Y/V, 2/Z, and 8/B etc.)

  • The product key you have entered does not appear to be a valid Windows 7 product key.

    Please check your product key, and type it again.

    Note: I had to use SLUI 3.exe to get this error message. Does that change anything?

    It shouldn't - Were you unable to use the link in System Properties? what was the problem there?
     
    Your Sticker does say "Windows 7 Home Premium" doesn't it?

    "Windows 7 Home Prem."

    When I click it through System Properties, it just shows the Genuine message.

    I suspect that when you got the Key from the internet to kludge the system, you perhaps downloaded and installed a Loader program? If so, then you need to Uninstall it.
    Once that's done, then hopefully your system should accept the proper key.

  • Unfortunately, you will not be able to change the OEM SLP product key.  You will need to reformat the hard drive and install a genuine "full version" edition of Windows 7 using a genuine Windows 7 installation DVD.  You can purchase a genuine Windows 7 full version edition from the Microsoft Store.

    Example: Windows 7 Home Edition- Full Version

  • The OP apparently has a  OEM SLP license installed that belongs to an Acer/Gateway/Packard Bell computer.  The MGA Report does not indicate the presence of a Acer/Gateway/Packard Bell motherboard BIOS.  The OEM SLP version will never activate (no matter what Windows 7 product key is used) without the correct motherboard BIOS being present.

  • NCIX appears to be a computer reseller outfit located in Canada.  They would not qualify for Windows 7 OEM SLP licenses for the custom computers they build and then sell.  They can only offer the generic OEM System Builder Windows 7 licenses.

    I would suggest that the OP contact NCIX and resolve this Windows 7 licensing issue directly with them. Sending a Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Edition 64BIT DVD OEM to the OP so a "clean install" can be performed would fix the issue.

    You obviously haven't bothered to read the thread.
    The OP has am OEM NSLP COA sticker - with which the computer was originally installed.
    When it for some reason came up with a non-genuine notification, he mistakenly used a key off the internet in an attempt to bypass the system
    The System is now not accepting the original OEM_NSLP Key - which does NOT require a SLIC table!

  • Ah... but I don't want to..! D=

    I have some stuff on here that would take like forever to put on a disc or something.

    Plus, the disc is already taken care of, a fresh Windows 7 installation disc was included with the package.
