Question about Toshiba Satellite A135-S4527 Notebook
When my computer is rebooted I am prompted for activation, when I attempt to enter the product key which I have on the back of my computer which is for Vista Basic it says that the product key will not work for this edition of Windows Vista You must either run windows vista setup or enter a windows vista ultimate key, I don't have any of the software that came with this laptop because I purchased this used so I don't have the setup disc and when I called Toshiba the referred me to Microsoft and then when I called Microsoft, they verified that they key I have is valid but I need a system recovery disc and referred me back to Toshiba, Is there something I could just download to restore the Vista Home Basic O/S? Thank You!!!
As you have stated that the key which you have is for
Vista - basic
and the operating system is most probably vista Ultimate
hence the key is not working
what You can do is search the internet for a Vista Ultimate Prodct key
if you can find it i guess the activation will go through easily
if this does not work or you want any other assistance please do post back.
