Problem with Vista Home Premium activation. RRS feed

  • Question




    Today I upgraded my BIOS and my motherboard drivers (newest nForce drivers for 6150 chipset) and suddenly my vista requires activation again. Its been working almost flawlessly for months. I uninstalled the chipset drivers and installed an older version and even uninstalled my Spyware Doctor (even though its the newest version and should not have the reported flaw), but nothing worked.


    Now the funny part is that if I go and validate on the Microsoft website (http://www.microsoft.com/genuine), then it passes. I am at a loss to what to do. The diagonistic tool even says that the validation is genuine...

  • Hi PeteEU,


      Vista is NOT saying you are Non-Genuine, The bios update can change the Hardware ID enough that Vista thinks a new motherboard was installed. In this kind of scenario, Vista will request that you re-Activate. You did not need to uninstall anything. Activating is not a major problem and will only take a few moments of your time.


      The easy way to Activate is: Click the Start button, and type in slui.exe 4 in the search field and then press the Enter key. This will bring up the Activate by Phone dialog window. Follow the steps provided by the window. The phone activation process should only take about 6 minutes.


    Thank you,
