Ongoing issues with Vista Validation RRS feed

  • Question

  • I purchased a copy of Windows Vista Home Premium Upgrade to upgrade my Gateway Desktop that came with XP.  Late last year I had to have the mother board replaced and windows wanted to be validated again.  It would no longer accept the Key on the Vista box (said it was in use).  I called the number and the customer service rep (Microsoft) gave me a new number and it worked no problem.  Sadly I cannot find that activation key.

     

    Now unfortunately my hard drive failed and I had to reload Vista.  Now it won't accept the key at all (says not right key for this version).  Here is the text dump of the Diagnostic Tool.  Vista is telling me I only have 20 days left of use.

     

    Any help would be appreciated.  I didn't get a phone number to call this time.

  • Hello Hunapp,

     

      It sounds like when your Hard drive failed, you re-installed using the Windows Vista Home Premium Upgrade without first putting XP back on the laptop. To resolve the issue, I suggest reinstalling XP back on the computer and then Upgrading it using the Vista Home Premium Upgrade. The should be accepted during the upgrade. Once done, you would just need to Activate by Phone.

     

    Thank you,
