Toshiba Satellite NO OEM Certificate found RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Mr Darin:

    I reinstalled TOSHIBA Satellite L305-25894 because it stopped responding. It cant even go through to safe mode. I erased recovery partition last time. I opted to install a clean copy without the toshiba incorporated softwares because its making the system slow and have a lots of restrictions. (They still haven't realized that its making the system faulty). Anyway, from last time, i installed OEM SLP key instead of the OEM COA sticker key because it says that the sticker provides an invalid key. on the other hand, oem slp key slipped through but isnt able to self activate. i brought this system to the mall and they were able to activate the oem slp key (still, not the oem coa as what i have instructed them to activate instead). i learned i can change the key afterward. BUT, like NOW, if only they have activated the COA instead, i may have avoided this activation prob now. (my experience with my acer extensa is that i can reformat it anytime using the COA)

    I researched about this myself because i dont want to go their and have oem slp activated instead of the COA that i really need. i found a tool thats called slic toolkit 3.2. i ran it and found out that my OEM certificate is missing. i dont want to try modding. its too complicated for me. and this is using INSYDE bios. from what i have researched, its all, AMI, AWARD, and again i dont want to go there. so i tried looking for the certificate. but there is none. lucky for the other brands because they have.

    i hope you could help me with this. again, no recovery dvd, erased recovery partition, just a clean install of windows home premium using windows anytime upgrade dvd and the oem slp key for this laptop. (again, i dont have prob reinstalling using this process is my acer extensa, just with this toshiba). i really need to activate this using the COA so i could reinstall/activate smoothly in the future.

     

    Below is taken from your instruction in a related post:

    Your Windows is using an OEM SLP key, but (for whatever reason) cannot see the special instructions in the computer’s motherboard and is unable to Self-Activate.

      To fix the issue, you will need to change out the OEM SLP key with the COA SLP key.  The normal way to do this is to click the ‘Start’ button, right-click ‘Computer’, select ‘Properties’ and then click ‘Change Product Key’ (located in the lower right-hand side of the window). Enter the COA SLP key and follow the instructions in the Change Product Key Wizard.

     

    Alternate steps to change the product key

     

    1)    Click the Start button

    2)    Type: slui.exe 3 and hit the Enter key

    3)    Type in the Product key from the sticker on your computer

    4)    Click the Next button.

    5)    You will be asked if want to Activate, click ok

    6)    It will attempt to Activate by the internet and will return an Invalid Key error (this is ok, continue to step 7)

    7)    Click the Start button

    8)    Type: slui.exe 4 and hit the Enter key

    9)    Select your location in the drop down menu and click the Next button

    10) The next screen provides the number to call to Activate by Phone

     

    FEEDBACK:

    even the oem slp reports it isnt valid for activation.

    i tried changing it with the COA. still invalid as reported.

    i typed slui 4. this has been a prob since for me also, i havent seen that activate by phone option since. so i am stuck with no more options, legal options.

    the oem slp i used is . my coa is . i was able to use this coa when they activated the oem slp and i changed it at home using slmgr.vbs.


    please help me activate my coa.

  • You will need to obtain the Toshiba Recovery Media designed for your TOSHIBA Satellite L305-25894 and perform a "clean install". The Windows Vista Anytime Upgrade DVD you have is only to be used to upgrade from one version of Windows Vista to another (i.e. Vista Home Premium to Vista Ultimate).  You cannot use the Windows Vista Anytime Upgrade DVD to perform a "clean install" as it was not designed for that use. (It will only accept a "retail" Windows Vista product key - not an "OEM" product key such as the one affixed to your computer, nor the OEM SLP you discovered using the third-party utility program "slic toolkit 3.2")

    please help me activate my coa.


    Please DELETE your Keys - instead, provide us with a proper 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.

    You need to edit out the Product Keys in your original post, before they are stolen and used by someone else - thereby disallowing your own use of them!
     
    Your report shows no obvious problems, except that the OEM_SLP License is not self-activating the way it should.
     
    I suspect that your Licensing store is corrupted....
    Please try the below steps to recreate the Store files.  This may resolve the issue.
     
    1) Open an Internet Browser window.
    2) Type: %windir%\system32 into the browser address bar.
    3) Find the file CMD.exe
    4) Right-Click on CMD.exe and select 'Run as Administrator'
    5) Type: net stop slsvc  (it may ask you if you are sure, select yes)
    6) Type: cd %windir%\ServiceProfiles\NetworkService\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\SoftwareLicensing
    7) Type: rename tokens.dat tokens.bar
    8) Type: cd %windir%\system32
    9) Type: net start slsvc
    10) Type: cscript slmgr.vbs -rilc (It may take a long time for this to complete, please be patient)
    11) Restart your computer twice.
    12) You may be required to enter the Product Key and/or Activate.
     
     Reboot
     
    Once complete, please post back with a new MGADiag report

  • Hi Mr Paton:

    I followed the instructions and it went smoothly. Until the 10th, I am comfortable knowing it went well. after i restarted it the 1st time, it asked for the key, i entered COA 1st but still, invalid key so i went on with the OEM SLP. OEM SLP went through but activation failed. i saw the contact microsoft option by phone for the 1st time. but when i clicked on it, it just opened up help support. so i just closed it with the activation error and restarted it. after it went to the desktop, i restarted it for the last time. i had 3 restarts all in all. should i have disabled internet and went on with the telephone activation? or it was just not part of the instructions? anyway, sir, here is the result of the mgadiag:

  • Hi Mr Paton:

    I followed the instructions and it went smoothly. Until the 10th, I am comfortable knowing it went well. after i restarted it the 1st time, it asked for the key, i entered COA 1st but still, invalid key so i went on with the OEM SLP. OEM SLP went through but activation failed. i saw the contact microsoft option by phone for the 1st time. but when i clicked on it, it just opened up help support. so i just closed it with the activation error and restarted it. after it went to the desktop, i restarted it for the last time. i had 3 restarts all in all. should i have disabled internet and went on with the telephone activation? or it was just not part of the instructions? anyway, sir, here is the result of the mgadiag:

    Your COA sticker *does* say it's for Windows Vista Home Premium??
    If your COA key is being reported as invalid before activation, then the chances are that you are typing it wrong -check the characters on the sticker under a bright light with a magnifier.
    The OEM_SLP Key cannot be activated over the internet or by phone.
    If you get the computer to accept the COA Key, you will probably have to activate it by phone

  • Hi Mr Paton:

    I just can't have it validated. i tried to insert it using slmgr.vbs -ipk but still invalid. i wasn't able to have the activation popped out before desktop loads like the 1st time 1 tried ur instruction so i went to cmd and tried it there. I am just curious. this is the key that i keyed in and was accepted at home after the oem slp was activated at the mall. the technician had some usb plugged in with his files there that made the oem slp activation. so if my coa was accepted and was activated (i tried slmgr.vbs -ipk <PK> and slmgr.vbs -ato), so it means that i have the right COA noted. ??

    is there another way sir? or this would be the time i ask for help to activate the oem slp rather since there is no other way?? ill try to key in the coa once activated and be asking for your help to have it be the permanent key.

    history of this laptop: bought in the us, owned by my mom. laptop crashed. fixed by her friend. brought here to philippines given to brother. about to reformat because its really slow then i discovered the key using magic jelly bean-turned out it is oem slp. when i reformatted it, the coa was invalidated. oem slp slipped through. went to the mall to have it validated. still, oem slp was the key. then at home, changed it to the coa, activated with no errors. now, reformatted, accepting the oem slp but not coa still. im really confused, if i had it activated the last time, i should have it activated it now also but unlucky,otherwise..

    I don't understand your story -
    If the OEM Key was 'activated' in the mall, why did you enter the COA key? there should have been no need to.
     
    This is beginning to sound as if what happened at the mall was that the tech hacked activation.
     
    You say that this is a new install? What disk did you use for the install?
    You will NEVER get the OEM_SLP Key to activate unless you use the manufacturer's proper Recovery Disk set to do the reinstall (at least, not legally).

  • the oem was activated at the mall because i was not able to activate it at home. i want the COA to appear in the magic jelly bean thats why i entered the coa at home. so, that's why the technician said its not necessary. oh, i did not know, i was really curious and i want the COA to appear in the keyfinder. this is the only laptop that doesn't show the COA in the keyfinder thats why.

    the mall is the legal supplier of toshiba. i wanted them to activate my copy by not using toshibas recovery cd. they had it activated genuinely so i dont consider them hacking it. i always enable auto updates etc that requires validation.. this hasnt had a prob for a year and more..

    this is a clean install using the windows vista anytime upgrade dvd. i even erased the windows.old folder using disk cleanup. so this is really clean. i even had ccleaner wipe mft free space after the install. i dont know what it does really but im worried that it may have caused it also?? i have no idea..

  • You will need to obtain the Toshiba Recovery Media designed for your TOSHIBA Satellite L305-25894 and perform a "clean install". The Windows Vista Anytime Upgrade DVD you have is only to be used to upgrade from one version of Windows Vista to another (i.e. Vista Home Premium to Vista Ultimate).  You cannot use the Windows Vista Anytime Upgrade DVD to perform a "clean install" as it was not designed for that use. (It will only accept a "retail" Windows Vista product key - not an "OEM" product key such as the one affixed to your computer, nor the OEM SLP you discovered using the third-party utility program "slic toolkit 3.2")
