HP Notebook displaying Windows "may not be genuine method" requiring activation. RRS feed

  • Question

  • My 4 year old HP Notebook is displaying an error message claiming that the version of Windows (Windows 7) that isn't genuin or needs activating despite the fact I have been using it for 4 years! I can't reenter the product key as it has rubbed off the bottom of the laptop!

    Here is the Diagnostic REport.

    Thanks

  • Your problem is that for some reason, the system is unable to properly read the SLIC table in the BIOS, which is required to be able to self-activate the OEM_SLP Key with which the computer came installed.

     

    The normal solution is to change the Key to the one on your COA sticker - but you say that you are unable to read the Key there.

     

    In such circumstances, the only things you can do are

     

    1) recreate the Licensing Store - in case it's a minor software problem causing the misread

    2) try updating the BIOS to the latest available Vista-compliant one, from the manufacturer's website

    3) Contact the manufacturer direct, and see if they can provide assistance to correct the SLIC table

    4) a reformat and reinstall using the manufacturer's recovery media

    5) purchase a new license for Windows (or a new computer)
