Windows Vista Build 6002. This copy of windows is not genuine.


  • Hi guys. I'm new to these forums so I apologise if this is posted the wrong section or whatever.

    I've had this laptop now for about a year and a half and haven't had any problems then today I turned it on and I have a black desktop with the message "Windows Vista Build 6002. This copy of windows is not genuine." in the bottom right hand corner. Now, I've looked through other threads on here and can't seem to sort it out. I've also had a balloon pop up on the bottom right hand corner of the task bar at the bottom saying I need to validate my version of windows.

    So I tried to validate it by putting in the code on the sticker on the back of my laptop, which is fine until I have to put in a '0' and it says that the character isn't valid. I don't understand. Surely if it's there it should be in the code? It's just frustrating that I've not had this problem until now.

    Can anyone help me?

    Thanks in advance.
