win7 repeated activation requests, but it's completes successfully each time RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I've been trying to fix this issue for a while.  Every few hours my desktop disappears and i get asked to activate windows, which I do, and it says the product key is fine and it activates successfully.  This started about 3 months ago when I upgraded my RAM, but since then I've tried doing a repair installation to no effect.  I've included the MGA thing below, hopefully someone can figure out what's wrong with it.

    Thanks very much for your help!

  • MSDNAA Keys are a bit of a law unto themselves - they may be valid at the time of issue, but the issuer has control of the license, and key, and often will abandon a Key every year - which means that people using that Key will be fine while it is installed, but will be unable to reinstall using the same Key.

    Since you have a Home Premium license for your machine, I would suggest that you consider clean reinstalling using that Key together with a downloaded ISO.

    The Key in your latest report has changed to the Default Key for Windows 7 Pro. It's unnusual for Keys to change liek this, unless you're using some form or registry cleaner which is incompatible with Windows7.

     

    Download the SP1 Refresh for your language and edition from the links on these pages...

     

    Heidoc - Microsoft DR Download links

     

    The links are for downloads from the Digital River servers run for MS, so are about as safe as you can get :)

  • Your license is a Volume MAK one - from where did you acquire this?

    Sony VGNFW590F machines appear to be sold with Home Premium - as such, they generally don't qualify for upgrade to an MAK license.

    Please post a new report when the machine is showing the notification - the current report appears to have been run while the machine was 'genuine', and shows no problems.

  • Hi Noel,

    My computer did come with home premium, but a couple years ago I had to reinstall and I only had a copy of windows 7 professional available so I used that.  I got the product key for the new installation from the msdn academic alliance website.

    The new report is down below:

  • Ok, thanks for the info.  Is a clean reinstall necessary, or do you think I can do a repair/upgrade install?
    Tuesday, December 18, 2012 6:13 AM
  • Downgrading to Home Premium from Pro is a clean install job :(

  • I found a potential workaround at http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/13130-63-downgrading-win7-home-premium  and at http://www.mydigitallife.info/hack-to-in-place-downgrade-from-windows-7-ultimate-or-professional-to-less-premium-editions/ (sorry for no hyperlinks) that could make it an upgrade install (last post on the page).  Would this work?  It says:

    here is a “simple” hack which allows you to embed the downgrade procedure in Windows 7. 
    Click Start. 
    In the Search Box, type regedit and press Enter. 
    Navigate to this registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\ Microsoft\ Windows NT\CurrentVersion 

    In the right pane, click EditionID and ProductName and give them the value which corresponds to a lower Windows 7 edition. Here is an example: 

    Windows 7 Home Premium (downgrade from Windows 7 Ultimate to Windows 7 Home Premium) 
    EditionID: HomePremium 
    ProductName: Windows 7 HomePremium 
    Start your Windows 7 installation by inserting your Windows 7 Disc. 
    Now, Select Upgrade as type of installation. Follow the instruction on the screen. 
    Reactivate your operating system.

  • I have seen similar hacks work  sometimes.

    I've never tried them myself, but if you're going to have to do a repair install, bear in mind that it could fail for any number of reasons, so back up your data to external media first anyhow, so if worse comes to worst, and it trashes the system, then you won't have lost everything.
