Copy of Windows Pre-Installed by HP is suddenly not genuine RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have an HP Mini netbook that we bought in June 2010. It came pre-installed (and activated - I checked when we got it) with Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit. We purchased the computer directly from the hp.com website so I know that it is genuine unless hp is pre-installing counterfeit copies of Windows. Today, when I turned on the computer I noticed that it says "This copy of Windows is not genuine" at the bottom right of the desktop. It is also harassing me continually about being the victim of software counterfeiting.

    Whenever I go to activate windows it says: "The Windows 7 Home Premium product key you typed is invalid for activation".

    Additional Information: I have a trial version of Office 2010 installed that is set to expire in August 2010.

    Please help!

     

    Here is my WGA Diagnostics log:

  • Hello LCARSNxG,

    I think you just have to activate the computer.

    Instead of the automated online activation, try choosing Activate by Telephone in the activation wizard.

  • Well, that was anticlimactic. Thanks!

    The automated phone system gave me no trouble activating the computer. I think it is a pretty bad design to show scary messages telling the user that they are the victim of counterfeiting and that their copy of windows is not genuine if all that is needed is a simple activation. I would expect for it to just say that I need to activate windows.

    I know that the computer came from HP "preactivated". What can cause a computer to suddenly become "unactivated"?
