  • I'm currently on a Lenovo ThinkPad X131e , and It is time for me to reactive windows 7. I cannot because the product key is invalid, I spent 3 hours with tech support and I was told to either ask a Geek Squad, pay $600, or go to a repair shop but, only option I have right now is to go to a Geek Squad, is anyone able to help me?

    If windows 7 came with your pc then you'll probably need to contact the manufacturer or try their forums.

  • From 10240 on Enterprise must be activated by the VLK (volume licensing).  You cannot get a serial number and activate it in the normal manner.

    Geek squad will not be able to help you unless they install a pirated key which would eventually fail anyway.

    If you are in a corporate environment they should be able to help you, if not you should get off the enterprise build before July 29

  • Hello,

    The Windows Desktop Perfmon and Diagnostic tools forum is to discuss performance monitor (perfmon), resource monitor (resmon), and task manager, focusing on HOW-TO, Errors/Problems, and usage scenarios.

    As the question is off topic here, I am moving it to the Where is the Forum... forum.

  • Hello,

    I'd ask in the Windows 7 IT Pro forums:
