Windows Vista 32 bit not genuine after installing new hard drive RRS feed

  • Question

  • Since getting a new hard drive installed, Windows Vista is "not genuine" even though I used the code right on my Dell Studio 1551 laptop.  Please let me know what other information is needed to repair.  I am not extremely tech savvy, so please keep it simple for me:).  Thank you for helping me, I am very frustrated!

    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.
