Windows 7 activation RRS feed

  • Question

  • I installed windows 7 on my Dell laptop, uograding from XP which worked perfectly.   I then took this to Mallorca in January, again it worked perfectly.   I have just been out to Mallorca again and the message comes that it needs activation, error message 7601, when I enter the code it won't activate.   All the programs work but the screen has a black background and error message keep occurring, more pf a nuisance.

    To properly analyse and solve problems with Activation and Validation, we need to see a full copy of the report produced by the MGADiag tool
    (download and save to desktop - http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 )
    Once saved, run the tool.
    Click on the Continue button, which will produce the report.
    To copy the report to your response, 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 response.

    Please also state the Version and Edition of Windows quoted on your COA sticker (if you have one) on the case of your machine (or inside the battery compartment), but do NOT quote the Key on the sticker!
