  • Hi,


    Since you made hardware changes to your computer.


    It seems your computer is not properly communicating with slic table. You will have to change your product key to the one on your COA.


    1.Click Start, right click Computer


    2.Click Properties


    3.Scroll down to Windows Activation


    4.Click the link 'Change product key'


    5.Enter the product key located on the COA sticker attached to the bottom of your laptop or in the battery compartment. Click Next to activate over the Internet.


    Generally, hardware change that might cause a re-activation, if you need additional help reactivating Windows on your device, contact customer support.


    Best Regards,

  • my  issue is not yet  solved my first problem is the  COA sticker is worn  the key  is no longer visible, is there no way to recover the key from a old windows log  file?

    on the SP1 issue i have been advised to run "chkdsk /x /f /r" which found and replaced some bad sectors, however now when i tried to install SP1 which i have downloaded before , i get  the following error code : ERROR_SXS_COMPONENT_STORE_CORRUPT(0x80073712)

  • Hi,


    You may find the Windows 7 product key in registry:


    1.Type regedit into the run window and press the OK button.


    2.Navigate to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Installer\UserData" all the way in the Registry Editor and press Ctrl + F keys to locate "ProductID" key.


    3.Right-click the ProductID key and select Modify. View the number displayed.


    And try a repair install using an inplace upgrade (installing Windows from within a running Windows, to keep data and programs).


    Best Regards,

  • thanks Farena, found the key, now i will try repair install and i will report back

    ok so i found the key to contain 20 characters instead of 25, so it  seems like i am buying a new license afterall

    note: i found in 3 differant id codes all contain 20 caracters one code in "install properties folder", then again the same code in "enterprise" , a second code in "current version" and a third code in "Default product key"

    It's not easily readable, because it's encrypted.

  • The Product ID you find in the registry is not the same as a Product Key you need for activation.

    Microsoft has Activation Specialists (actual human beings) that deal with these kinds of problems all the time (lost key, can't read the sticker, etc.) - that is what they do.

    Why don't you call them, explain your situation and see if they can help:

    It used to be that when you called the toll free number the advice was not to respond to any of the prompts and eventually you would be connected to a human being but that is not the way it seems to work these days (I just called and checked again).

    Click the Start Button/Orb and enter the following:

    slui.exe  4

    Press the Enter key, then choose your nearest location, then click Next:


    Call the toll free number:


    If you say nothing or press no touch tone keys, eventually you well get a prompt that says:

    For security purposes please enter the following number on your phone's touch tone pad:

    You must enter the requested 3 digit code.  If you do nothing, you will be disconnected.

    Then you can sit and wait through the prompts and eventually be transferred to a human being.

    Explain your situation and they should help you.

    If they don't help or can't help just hang up and call back again and the chances are good that you will talk to a different person and eventually you should find some nice person that will help you.

    I would also wonder why you don't use installation media that already has SP1 built in...  If by some chance you do get SP1 installed and do not have SP1 installation media you will never be able to "fix" your SP1 system with non SP1 installation media.

  • well thank you  to all who gave me advice here, i bought a key on ebay from a " certified decommissioned " computer. i made the repair install USB using  this key

    then downloaded the following  :

    KB890830, KB2685811, Hotfix KB947821, readiness tool K947821

    then SP1 updated successful and windows not genuine notification vanished without me having to enter the key i bought on ebay.

    now my  computer have been doing various automatic updates so i believe all will be fine soon
