Windows 7 says its not genuine FOR THE SECOND TIME RRS feed

  • Question

  • So this is the second time my windows has started telling me it's not genuine.  Last time I called windows and Asus tech support I was told the only way to fix it was to do a format and re-instal, which I went through the pain of doing and reinstalling all my software which takes a couple days to copy everything over, re-install windows and all my software and copy all my files back over, and now it's doing it again.  And I can't figure out what's triggered it again now.  It's the product code that came with the laptop when I bought it and I have windows 7 on another computer and this never seems to happen.  It's a Asus G73 SW-A1, with Sandy Bridge.  It's got Windows 7 Home Premium with Service Pack 1.  I've got a version that doesn't have service pack one if that would make a difference.  This isn't the original version that came on the laptop.  I had downloaded an image from the Microsoft partners site so I could change the way the drives were partitioned when I got it.

    Really, I mostly want to know what the hell keeps causing this, or I'm just going to start looking into cracks or something for this to keep it from doing this if it can't be fixed and I'm told the solution is to once again start all over and just take the windows genuine software check out of the equation.  This is the only thing that goes wrong with my computer and it seems to come out of the blue.  The only thing I've installed in the last few days is the driver for the Microsoft Wireless Receiver  for wireless xbox controllers.  I ran the sfc /scannow thing and it came up with nothing.

    When it first said my copy of windows may not be genuine it had me download Windows Activation Update, when when I ran tells me windows isn't genuine and asks me if I want to buy a genuine license or enter a new code.  Enter my old code gets back the error of:

    A problem occurred when Windows tried to activate.  Error Code 0xc004f063

  • Never mind, at least for now!

     

    Read about the difference between the OEM SLP and the COA SLP.  The other code worked, so as long as this holds up, then great.
