Vista Validation RRS feed

  • Question

  • I recently purchased  Acer and Toshiba laptops. Both fail validation at the point of the yellow bar warning for ActiveX install. The anternative method results in a DNS error. The WGA diag. fails the last three checks.


    I saw another post with this error but, no published fix.


    Can you help me solve this problem?


    Below is from an Aug 1, 2007 post. This the same problem I am having.

    1. Validation required, so I click on the Continue button and a page appears that says if the ActiveX Control command is not displayed use alternate method, which I will now do.


    2. A page appears with - Run the validation tool, which will give you a code to enter in step 2. After clicking on the Contiue button a page appears that says "Internet explorer cannot display the webpage". Still no luck so now I will go to the FAQ page.


    3. Now I click on validate winows which brings up a page that says "genuine validation required", so I click on the continue button, which brings up the page which says "if you don't see the ActiveX use alternate method, so I click on alternate method which brings up a page with validate now, so I click on that, which brings up a file download which it says to click on run, which I do, but after waiting for 10 minutes nothing happens, so back to FAQ page.


    4. I then find my way to the Diagnostic Site and start diagnostics and  I get what is below. After clicking on the resolve button below, it brings up the same page with "if you can't see ----- then try again, which I do, but it just keeps bring up the same thong again.  Pleeease help
