Validation problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello - I have a Packard Bell IGO 6000 which cannot be recovered from the inbuilt recovery software.
    I have purchased XP Profesional from a legal source and installed XP onto a clean system.
    The first attempt would not authenticate with Microsoft (key 'blocked') so I obtained another key from the supplier and re-installed and this has ben rejected also. Here is the diagnostic:

  • Good Morning Peter,

    Well unfortunately the product key is also invalid. Right now, your computer has a Volume License (VL) edition of Windows XP Professional identified. The installation was done with a now-blocked Volume License Key (VLK) located on line 2. VLKs are blocked by Microsoft at the request of the original product key holder for various reasons such as the product key was lost, stolen, compromised, misused, or expired. Also, MS may have blocked the key if it notices a pattern of misuse, i.e., more installations of Windows XP Professional using that key than authorized.

    As a rule, VL editions of Windows XP Professional should not be sold to individual consumers. Businesses, schools and governments normally use VL editions for flexibility in installing many computers.  Also, Volume Licenses for Windows XP is Upgrade licenses ONLY and cannot be used as the original or base license for a new computer.

    Curious where did you actually purchase volume edition of Windows XP Professional? Do they have a webpage? There are options available to you.  First you can purchase a WGA Kit that was offered to you when you failed validation, ask the company for a refund, and submit a piracy report. Please visit http://www.microsoft.com/piracy/.  Next locate the Reporting Piracy link located in the upper left corner of the webpage. Select your geographical area and follow the steps. 

    Take care Peter,


    Stephen Holm
