Some troubles with re-activating Windows 7. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, firstly I'd like to give my apologies if this is superfluous, considering there are tons of threads related to this specific topic.

    A while ago (a few years or so) I had bought a laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium. I ran the installation disc, everything was installed, so on and so forth. Within those few years I've had to reinstall Windows 7 quite a few times on this particular laptop with some type of MS installation disc (was not the original, I had a seperate MS disc that I had bought). I've used the product key associated with that disc before, with the first reactivation, and without thinking of it fully I had to reinstall Windows yet again with the same disc. At the time it was to my surprise that the product key no longer worked, but I didn't think of it that it'd already been used once, so there was no way for it to be used again for obvious reasons. So now here I am with the "Windows 7 Build 7600 This copy of Windows is not genuine" watermark in the lower right hand screen and no possible thoughts of which to come up with another product key. I've downloaded and tried one of those "find your original product key" programs and was given just that, the original. But, for obvious reasons yet again I'm unable to use the original product key due to having a copy of Windows 7 instead of the original when I first bought the laptop. So, what I'm wondering is if there is any way to, er, somehow downgrade back to my original installation of Windows 7 without either of the discs? (The one given to me with the purchase of the laptop as well as the one bought seperately)

    Many thanks in advance.

  • Windows Product Key: *****-*****-BJD6C-K3YVH-DVQJG

    This is the OEM SLP key for a Asus computer. it will not work on a Toshiba.

    You will have to change your product key to the one on your COA
    click start
    right click computer
    select properties
    scroll to the bottom of the page and select change product key


    You will then have to activate by phone:
     How to activate Windows 7 manually (activate by phone)
    1) Click Start, and in the Search box type:   slui.exe  4
    2) Next press the 'ENTER' key
    3) Select your 'Country' from the list.
    4) Choose the 'Phone Activation' option.
    5) Stay on the phone (do not select/press any options) and wait for a person to help you with activation.
    6) Explain your problem clearly to the support person.




    Additional information:
    Computers, which are built by large manufactures that come with Windows Pre-Installed, come with two (2) Product Keys:


     OEM SLP: This key comes pre-installed in Windows, when it comes from the Factory. This key is geared to work with the special instructions found only on that Manufacturer's computer hardware. So when Windows was installed using the OEM SLP key (at the factory) Windows 7 looks at the motherboard and sees the special instructions and Self-Activates. (that's why you did not need to Activate your computer after you brought it home)
     
     COA SLP: This is the Product key that you see on the sticker on the side (or bottom,[ or inside the battery compartment]) of your computer. It is a valid product key, but should only be used in limited situations (such as if the OEM SLP key stops self-activating for whatever reason). The key must be activated by Phone. (Note: All manufacturers that use the OEM SLP system are required by contract to include a Certificate of Authenticity (COA) sticker, that has a COA SLP key, on the computer)
