windows vista basic activation RRS feed

  • Question

  • two months ago i purchased windows vista basic.

    installed and worked fine for a while.

    then i had problems with media player 11.played slow and freezes all the time.

    decided to buy bigger hard drive.install more ram and graphics card.

    reinstalled vista and wouldnt accept validation key?.

    in the end bought a new key at £142-which i have since returned!.

    re-installed vista again with original key.

    halfway through installation pc shut down?.

    re-booted and now vista is showing activated but with different product code?.

    what a nightmare-wish id stayed with xp home.

    spent hundreds of pounds on buying vista and upgrades for my pc!.

    not a happy chap!.
