Another case of Windows 7 Erroneously complaining its not genuine - ? After imaging OS to SSD drive? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Everyone,

    I'm having the same issues as others where Windows 7 suddenly started complaining that it isn't genuine.  I've seen several threads on this issue but the details look different and usually the feedback is to do a re install which seems ridiculous to me - why should I have to go through 10 hours of work re installing my OS and all of my programs just because Windows doesn't think its genuine???

    I purchased this computer new in December from Dell and replaced the hard drive immediately with a Samsung SSD.  I spent a few months installing software and in January a little after i finally started using it I started to get warnings about Windows not being genuine.  Usually the warnings go away after a re-boot but they are a nuissance since they seem to reset my theme preferences and the pop-up warnings interfere with programs.

    Here is the output of the diagnostic program.  Thanks for any help that you can offer!!

    Matt

    P.S.  I tried a repair install of Windows last week (found that suggestion on a forum somewhere) but it failed and never said why.  By the way, the product key on the bottom of my computer doesn't match the one shown below (the last 15 digits that I can see at least).  I can send that if you want.

  • BIOS valid for OA 2.0: yes, but no SLIC table

    change your product key to the one on your COA

    click start, type slui 3, press enter

    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)

  • The problem is that your system is unable to properly read the BIOS SLIC table that should be present in the system to be able to self-activate the OS.  

     

     You need to change the Product Key to the one on the COA sticker on the machine's case (or inside the battery compartment),  using the Change Product Key link at the bottom of the System properties page.

     

    You may need to activate by phone.

  • Wow, George, you are the best!!  I spent over an hour on the phone with Dell and they were convinced that i had to reinstall the OS.  I followed your procedure and now the diagnostic tool shows the product id on the bottom of my computer.  It says it activated successfully so hopefully I am all set now.

    Thanks!

  • Please post a new MGADiag report so we can confirm that everything is OK now
