Validation Error After Wireless Card install RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am now receiving Validation Errors after the installation of a NetgearWG311 PCI Wireless Card. The Validation Site is not Failing me, it infact tells me the procedure to remove the Validation erros (wgatray.exe /b) however this does not succeed, and I am continuing to receive the validation warnings.

  • Hello enobe99,

    If by "this version" you mean that your IBM computer has a Certificate of Authenticity for Windows XP Professional affixed to it, then you may be able to use the Product Key Updater Utility to change the product key from the currently installed nongenuine one to the genuine one that is printed on the CoA.

    Please try it here:  http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=45668

    Post back to let us know how you did :-)

  • EXCELLENT! This resolved the issue! Thank you for all your help! Any idea what caused this to happen after being in use for the past year?

    Thanks again!

  • Hello enobe99,

    The most common reason for nongenuine installations of Windows on computers from major manufacturers that previously had genuine Windows is what we call the "repair shop scenario."  Say you may have had some sort of problem with the computer and took it to a local shop, or your buddy the computer "guru", to fix.  Quite often these folks don't realize that there is a right way and a wrong way to install and reinstall Windows, and that not all "Windows discs" are the same.  They help you out by reinstalling or repairing Windows, but because they used a disc they downloaded from the internet, which came with a nongenuine product key, they inadvertently make your once-genuine Windows nongenuine.  There is a real danger to using disc images downloaded from the internet---Microsoft's research has shown that about half of these are chock-full of malware!

    Does that sound sort of like what happened in your case?

  • Not at all actually - This computer has been sitting in my office for about 2 months not connected to the internet - it has been used only for creating Lightscribe DVD's. It has had no issues needing repair, and only after teh Netgear WiFi Card was installed did the Nongenuine issue come up - the first thing I did was check for updates since it has had no connectivity for 2 months, however, It had already passed Genuine Check back when I installed SP3.
