Windows Vista Home Premium cannot activate RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I start my computer, windows returns an error msg that windows cannot validate it is a geniune and asks me to reenter my product code, when I do so, I get the same message.

    I have a Gateway DX 4300-03 that is one year old.  I have had multiple problems with this computer, but this is the first time windows could not validate itself.

    Any suggestions?

    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state the Version and Edition of Windows quoted on your COA sticker (if you have one) on the case of your machine, but do NOT quote the Key on the sticker!
