  • This type of scenario is unfortunately all too common.

    A retailer may buy a batch of OS-free laptops and install counterfeit Windows 'generously' doing the setup 'for free' - and adding a large amount to the price.

    The install in these cases is enabled by a hacker's Activation Exploit - which Vista wasn't terribly good at finding, and which only MSE really looked for, so far as I am aware.

    I'm afraid that you really now only have two choices - assuming that the person who sold you the machine refuses to correct this, and you want to continue to use Windows legally.

    1) Purchase a new Windows license and disk set - I would recommend Windows 7 if you can get hold of a legal copy, but be careful, there are a LOT of fakes out there.

    2) buy a new machine.

    Other options include things like installing some form of Linux distribution.

  • MGA Diagnostic Report:

    To properly analyze and solve problems with Activation and Validation, we need to see a full copy of the diagnostic report produced by the MGADiag tool (download and save to desktop -http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 )

    Once downloaded, run the tool.
    Click on the Continue button, after a short time, the Continue button will change to a Copy button.
    Click on the Copy button in the tool (ignore any error messages at this point), and then paste (using either r-click/Paste, or Ctrl+V ) into your post.

    One Issue Per Thread:

    Most Activation and Validation issues look the same, on the surface, but can have many different causes and fixes. This is why we ask for a diagnostic report and this is also why we ask that you create your own thread for your issue (in other words, don't post your issue in another person's thread). 

    It just becomes too complicated to try to troubleshoot multiple different issues in the same thread.

    New to the Forums?

    Note that if you are new to these forums, you may find that you are unable to post due to a restriction on the inclusion of links and pictures.
    Simply delete the only lines that contain links -  this will allow the remainder of the report to upload (and those lines are not generally critical to the report anyhow)

    Thank you,

  • The problem is that your system is unable to properly read the BIOS SLIC table that should be present in the system to be able to self-activate the OS.  

     You need to change the Product Key to the one on the COA sticker on the machine's case (or inside the battery compartment),  using the Change Product Key link at the bottom of the System properties page.

    You may need to activate by phone.

  • You have a very limited number of options in that case...

    Your problem is that for some reason, the system is unable to properly read the SLIC table in the BIOS, which is required to be able to self-activate the OEM_SLP Key with which the computer came installed.

    The normal solution is to change the Key to the one on your COA sticker - but you say that you are unable to read the Key there.

    In such circumstances, the only things you can do are

    1) recreate the Licensing Store - in case it's a minor software problem causing the misread

    2) try updating the BIOS to the latest available Win7-compliant one, from the manufacturer's website

    3) Contact the manufacturer direct, and see if they can provide assistance to correct the SLIC table

    4) a reformat and reinstall using the manufacturer's recovery media

    5) purchase a new license for Windows (or a new computer)   

    Please first try recreating Licensing Store.

    Recreate the Licensing Store

    Go to Start > All Programs > Accessories

    Right-Click on Command Prompt and select Run as Administrator - accept the UAC prompt

    Run the following commands in the Command Prompt window, using the Enter key at the end of each

    net stop sppsvc

    (wait until the service has stopped before entering the following lines)

    CD %windir%\ServiceProfiles\NetworkService\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\SoftwareProtectionPlatform

    REN tokens.dat tokens.bar

    net start sppsvc

    slui.exe

    After a couple of seconds the Windows Activation dialog will appear.

    You may be asked to re-activate and/or re-enter your product key, or Activation may occur automatically.

    If you are asked for your Key, use the one on the COA sticker on the machine's case

    Reboot and Post back with a new MGADiag report.

    (Note: the Line 'CD %win......\SoftwareProtectionPlatform' is all on one line - it may be broken in the Forum listing)

  • when i contacted Toshiba Care and gave my serial number(of laptop),they said this laptop,they didn't provide with pre-installed windows.So they said it could be a pirated windows(installed by my retailer), when i bought the laptop.

    I am confused now.Because i remember,when i first purchased my laptop,i did check the windows genuniety by looking at the system properties.It didn't show "Activate windows" phrase(as i have it now).
