WGA Validation Issue--Studying Abroad in China RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been using my current EEEPC for around six months, and have never had a problem with WGA. I am currently studying abroad in China, and after an update, WGA came up saying I have an invalid copy of windows. I ran the diag tool that is always posted in a reply to these kinds of threads, and this is what I got:

  • Hello jibbis18,

    Right now your computer has a pirated copy of XP Pro installed.

    Please look on the computer or with the materials that came with the computer or, if a retail purchase of Windows, look on the retail box, for a Windows Certificate of Authenticity (CoA).  If you have a CoA, what version and edition of Windows is listed on it?

  • Hello jubbis18,

    Without a CoA you do not have a license to run Windows, so it would be in your own best interests to contact the seller of the product and determine if the terms of the sale between you and the seller included a Genuine installation of Windows or not.

    Did you get a Genuine Microsoft hologrammed Windows CDROM, or a Asus manufacturer's recovery CD?

  • I have a CoA on the bottom of the computer. It does not specify a version or edition--I think it was rubbed off or something. I am not sure. It has the number (not the product key) 80043-647-410-792. FWIW, I bought the computer seeming New-In-Box from amazon or newegg, some fairly reputable site.
