Validation problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a Toshiba laptop that came with XP-Pro preinstalled.  After several years, all of a sudden it now says that XP is not genuine.  I ran the validation tool, and it says that my computer has an invalid bulk license.  The Window cert of auth on the bottom says Tohiba on it, and the key number does not match what is on the report.  Attached is the diag report

    When I try to use the key on the cert of auth, the validation tool says there is a problem and it cannot continue.  I called MS tech help and they gave me another product key, and that does not work either.

    What next?

  • Hi Jeff,

      The most common situation I see on this Forum, is when a Customer with a Genuine copy of Windows, gets they computer repaired. The repair shop (or repair guy) reinstalled Windows, but Did Not use the customer's Product Key to install. Later, the customer tries to Validate their Windows and it doesn't Validate.

      From the fact that the Product Key on your computer's CoA sticker doesn't match the one listed in the report you posted, I beleive it is likely that this has happened to you.

      I suggest that you use Product Key Update Tool www.microsoft.com/genuine/selfhelp/pkuinstructions.aspx to switch out the bad key with the Product Key on your CoA Sticker.

     Please Note:

    1) The tool will only allow a switch from XP Pro Product Key to XP Pro Product Key or XP Home Product Key to XP Home Product Key.

    2) The tool may not always succeed switching the Product Keys. If it does not work, you will need to reinstall Windows using the Product key on your CoA. (When reinstalled, to activate windows, use the 'Activate by Phone' method).
