Windows Vista Key Invalidation RRS feed

  • Question

  • Yesterday I applied service pack 1 and and it invalidated my copy of windows vista. I have had this problem before and have obtained two new keys and they were a process that I would rather not repeat for a third time. Please help me fix this problem, I am already quite disastified with Vista.

  • You can reset your Windows Vista activation by performing the following:


    1. Click on the Start button and in the Start Search box type in:  slui.exe 4


    2. Press the Enter key on your keyboard.


    3. Select your Country.


    4. Follow the instructions for phone activation.


    5.  Once completed, restart your computer.



    Statement from the Microsoft WGA support team:


    "When a user makes a significant hardware change, Vista will go into, what is called, Hardware Out of Tolerance. All that means is the hardware changed just enough that Vista is unsure if it is still installed on the same computer as before the hardware change.  Because of this, Vista requires the user to reactivate, but will only allow you to reactivate by phone. Furthermore, when the user calls, the "Automatic Voice" will not be able to conduct the reactivation, the user will need to talk to a Live Activation Rep. The reason for this is the Live Activation rep can ask a few questions and ensure Vista is still being used within the License Agreement.


    Now, let's say that, sometime in the future, you need to re-install Vista (on the same computer as before and no hardware was changed) once you have re-installed, Vista will ask to be activated. In this situation, you should be able to Activate over the Internet.


     I do know that Activating by Phone is a pain, but it should only take about 5 mins and shouldn't happen too frequently.(unless you change your hardware allot)



    On a Side Note, I just wanted to tell you that recently some PC Hardware manufacturers have been releasing Drivers (for their hardware) that sometimes changes that hardware's "Hardware ID". Windows (XP and Vista) use hardware IDs to determine if hardware has been added or changed in the computer. So in some cases, installing a new Driver may cause Vista to go into Hardware Out of Tolerance.  This is why installing SP1 may, sometimes, cause Vista to go Hardware Out of Tolerance, because SP1 contains some new drivers.


    Microsoft is currently working with these hardware manufacturers to ensure this doesn't happen in the future (or at least lower the chance of it happening)."
