Genuine Windows 0x8004fe21 Message RRS feed

  • Question

  • Everything seemed to be running fine before a left for vacation a week ago. Started the computer up and while working I noticed the message about Windows not being Genuine and getting message code. 0x8004fe21. I ignored it but have now received it a couple of times today. 

    Downloaded and ran MGADiag.

    After I hit copy nothing happened. Not sure where I am supposed to go to get the diagnostic report that others show?

    Help?

  • I think I cleared the problem. I reloaded Win 7 from the disc I have and did an update so that all of my files and programs were retained. So far so good, pretty painless. I wonder what caused the problem in the first place?

  • To properly analyse and solve problems with Activation and Validation, we need to see a full copy of the report produced by the MGADiag tool
    (download and save to desktop - http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 )
     Once saved, run the tool.
    Click on the Continue button, which will produce the report.
     To copy the report to your response, 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 response.
      - **in your own thread**, please
     
    Please also state the Version and Edition of Windows quoted on your COA sticker (if you have one) on the case of your machine (or inside the battery compartment), but do NOT quote the Key on the sticker!
