  • General discussion

  • my laptop was bought last june 2007, was fabulous for the next months until i got curious with the accompanying dvd disk of windows anytime upgrade and ran it on the said laptop.it asked for the key, of course i turned the laptop upside down to copy the serial on its bottom.voila!microsoft said it is not a valid product key and for many sessions thereafter it dogged me with 3 options on how to get a valid key; 1)automated phone system, 2) through online purchase 3)the 3rd i can't quite remember. and just yesterday to my surprise, i cant use my laptop anymore except for the 2nd option w/c allows me to use it but on a limited feature onl w/c is virtually useless to me since i'm very mobile. now, im lost.
