Validation in process hangs RRS feed

  • Question

  • Son1's laptop (Win7 Home Premium) has started claiming that windows might
    not be genuine.

    So he starts Windows Validation and after 30 minutes it's still saying
    Windows Validation in progress and don't navigate away from this site.

    Is it usually so slow, or is there a problem?

    And if there's a problem, what do we do?

  • Try again, using Internet Explorer rather than FireFox.

    If it still stalls, post an MGADiag report.

    To properly analyse and solve problems with Activation and Validation, we need to see a full copy of the report produced by the MGADiag tool
    (download and save to desktop - http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 )
     Once saved, run the tool.
    Click on the Continue button, which will produce the report.
     To copy the report to your response, click on the Copy button in the tool (ignore any error messages at this point), and then paste (using either r-click/Paste, or Ctrl+V ) into your response.
      - **in your own thread**, please
     
    Please also state the Version and Edition of Windows quoted on your COA sticker (if you have one) on the case of your machine (or inside the battery compartment), but do NOT quote the Key on the sticker!

    Apologies for the delay, but I've only just been back to Son1's house.

    Here's the report and I look forward to your comments.

    Error: 0xC004F012

    This error is horribly non-specific!

    It can be very simple to fix, or almost unfixable.

    Let's try the easy solution first.....

    Please first try recreating Licensing Store.

     

    Recreate the Licensing Store

    Go to Start > All Programs > Accessories

    Right-Click on Command Prompt and select Run as Administrator - accept the UAC prompt

    Run the following commands in the Command Prompt window, using the Enter key at the end of each

     

    net stop sppsvc

    (wait until the service has stopped before entering the following lines)

     

    CD %windir%\ServiceProfiles\NetworkService\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\SoftwareProtectionPlatform

    REN tokens.dat tokens.bar

    net start sppsvc

    slui.exe

     

    After a couple of seconds the Windows Activation dialog will appear.

    You may be asked to re-activate and/or re-enter your product key, or Activation may occur automatically.

    If you are asked for your Key, use the one on the COA sticker on the machine's case

     

    Reboot and Post back with a new MGADiag report

  • Thanks Noel. I tried that but at the Windows Activation I got a dialogue box

    The Description reminded me that Son1 sent his laptop to be fixed a while ago, following problems with the graphics. Putting two and two together, this might be when the Validation problem started.

    So what now?

    Regards

  • That's a distinct possibility.

    Please run a full CHKDSK and SFC scan....

     

    Click on Start > All Programs > Accessories

    Right-click on the Command Prompt entry

    Select Run as Administrator and accept the UAC prompt - the Elevated Command Prompt window should pop up.

     

    At the Command prompt, type

     

    CHKDSK C: /R

     

    and hit the Enter key.

    You will be told that the drive is locked,

    and the CHKDSK will run at he next boot - hit the Y key, press Enter, and then reboot.

     

    The CHKDSK will take a few hours depending on the size of the drive, so be patient!

     

    After the CHKDSK has run, Windows should boot normally (possibly after a second auto-reboot) -

    then run the SFC.

     

    SFC -System File Checker - Instructions

    Click on Start > All Programs > Accessories

    Right-click on the Command Prompt entry

    Select Run as Administrator and accept the UAC prompt - the Elevated Command Prompt window should pop up.

     

    At the Command prompt, type

     

    SFC /SCANNOW

     

    and hit the Enter key

     

    Wait for the scan to finish - make a note of any error messages - and then reboot.

     

     

    Copy the CBS.log file created (C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log) to your desktop (you can't manipulate it directly) and then compress the copy and upload it to your SkyDrive Public folder (http://skydrive.live.com ) and post a link to it so that I can take a look.

     

    Post a new MGADiag report with details of any error messages encountered.

    Not sure if this is quite working out!

    Here's the link to the CBS log (I don't use Skydrive, so I hope it works) http://sdrv.ms/14PX4aB

    I notice that the "not valid Copy of Windows" has gone. But now, under Computer/Properties I see "2 days until automatic activation" " But when I click Activate Windows now I get "Product Key Invalid for Activation" Contact Lenovo to help resolve...

    So I called Lenovo and they just said "re-install the o/s".

    Not going to do that unless I really have to!

  • You shouldn't have to reinstall.

    The CBS had archived the SFC results before you managed to post the CBS.log file - please upload the latest CBS persist cab file, as it should contain the SFC results.

    Please also post a new MGADiag report.

    What Key did you attempt to enter? You MUST use the one from your COA sticker, if requested for a Key.

  • Now sorted.

    I found the Product Key lurking under the battery, entered that under Change Product Key and it's happy.

    There's an issue with failing updates, but I'll post that as a separate thread.

    Thanks for your help Noel.

  • You'll need the CBS/SFC data, and also a CheckSUR log - I suggest that you post over in SevenForums....
