  • Question

  • I have a compuer that has laid dormant few a few years. I want to get all the Windows updates. But I receive a message that says "your pc is not authrized for sale or use in country or geograpic area in which you are currently located".

     I bought this computer in the US and I reside in the US. Like I said the computer laid dormant for a few years and I just thought about firing it up as a back up computer. I never had an issue before.

     What are my options.

  • MGA Diagnostic Report:

    To properly analyze and solve problems with Activation and Validation, we need to see a full copy of the diagnostic report produced by the MGADiag tool (download and save to desktop -http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 )

    Once downloaded, run the tool.
    Click on the Continue button, after a short time, the Continue button will change to a Copy button.
    Click on the Copy button in the tool (ignore any error messages at this point), and then paste (using either r-click/Paste, or Ctrl+V ) into your post.

    One Issue Per Thread:

    Most Activation and Validation issues look the same, on the surface, but can have many different causes and fixes. This is why we ask for a diagnostic report and this is also why we ask that you create your own thread for your issue (in other words, don't post your issue in another person's thread). 

    It just becomes too complicated to try to troubleshoot multiple different issues in the same thread.

    Simply delete the only lines that contain links -  this will allow the remainder of the report to upload (and those lines are not generally critical to the report anyhow)

    You need to post your complete MGA Report so we can advise you of your options.
