Vista Home Premium 64 - unacceptable character in product key

    Question

  • I was Vista Home Premium 32-bit just fine for about 6 months... because i wanted to put in more memory and increase to 6Gb i decided to go for Vista Home Premium 64-bit. I installed a new hard drive in raid 0 config, and also the extra memory to take it upto 6GB. I had a lot of problems with RAID and vista installation so ended up doing it several times, however so that I would not get my product key locked I never entered the product key for these reinstalls, I only planned to activate windows after I thought everything was stable.

    However, now that I want to activate it, I get the error that I'm entering an invalid character when I type the letter 'L' .

    Here is the information I got from WGA diagnostic tool:

    The product key shown there is not my product key, maybe it may be coz I'm using a borrowed vista DVD, but I am unable to enter my product key. Please help.

  • intrepid777,

     

      The only way I could help you is if I could see your Product Key, but I DO NOT want you to post it here in this public forum. 

     

       I suggest that you go to http://www.microsoft.com/licensing/resources/vol/numbers.mspx and looking up the Product Activation Call center in your area and giving them a call. When you call, an automated voice will answer first. Now, you want to talk to a person, so unless the automated voice gives you the option to talk to a live Activation Rep, Don't enter or say anything to the voice. This should force it to transfer you to a Live Activation Rep. They can check your key and they also deal with Product Keys on a daily basis, so they may have some better insight into what might be the problem. 

     

    Thank you,

    <quote Darin - forum Owner>

    Computers, which are built by large manufactures that come with Windows Pre-Installed, come with two (2) Product Keys:

    A)   OEM SLP: This key comes pre-installed in Windows, when it comes from the Factory. This key is geared to work with the special instructions found only on that Manufacturer's computer hardware. So when Windows was installed using the OEM SLP key (at the factory) Vista looks at the motherboard and sees the special instructions and Self-Activates. (that's why you did not need to Activate your computer after you brought it home)

     

    B)    COA SLP: This is the Product key that you see on the sticker on the side (or bottom) of your computer. It is a valid product key, but should only be used in limited situations (sush as if the OEM SLP key stops self-activating for whatever reason). The key must be activated by Phone. (Note: All manufacturers that use the OEM SLP system are required by contract to include a Certificate of Authenticity (COA) sticker, that has a COA SLP key, on the computer)

     

       Your Windows is using an OEM SLP key, but (for whatever reason) cannot see the special instructions in the computer’s motherboard and is unable to Self-Activate.

      To fix the issue, you will need to change out the OEM SLP key with the COA SLP key.  The normal way to do this is to click the ‘Start’ button, right-click ‘Computer’, select ‘Properties’ and then click ‘Change Product Key’ (located in the lower right-hand side of the window). Enter the COA SLP key and follow the instructions in the Change Product Key Wizard.

     

    Alternate steps to change the product key

     

    1)    Click the Start button

    2)    Type: slui.exe 3 and hit the Enter key

    3)    Type in the Product key from the sticker on your computer

    4)    Click the Next button.

    5)    You will be asked if want to Activate, click ok

    6)    It will attempt to Activate by the internet and will return an Invalid Key error (this is ok, continue to step 7)

    7)    Click the Start button

    8)    Type: slui.exe 4 and hit the Enter key

    9)    Select your location in the drop down menu and click the Next button

    10) The next screen provides the number to call to Activate by Phone

     

    NOTE: when you call that number, you will first hear an Automated Voice. If the Automated Voice gives you an option to talk to a Live Activation Rep., select that option. If not, do not enter any numbers. This should force the Automated Voice to transfer you to a Live Activation Rep. Trying to Activate thru the Automated Voice will not work, in your case; only thru the Live Activation Rep. will your Activation be successful.
