Go back to best buy, somebody may have already used keygen and used your license key which is why its no good. Microsoft won't help you but simply tell you to go back to where you bought your laptop. I know, that sucks.

I am looking to set up an old computer with new memory and hard drive. I have windows vista from my laptop computer can I install this into my newly updated computer and how.


Generally, the licensed software for your laptop is tied to that machine/brand. If you bought a copy of vista and installed it on the laptop, you may be able to install vista on three machines if that is the version you bought.
Most Microsoft programs are locked to one machine and won't activate on another system.
Now, if this is an old, slow (less than 1 Ghz) with less than 2 gigs, it probably will run Vista very slowly if you get it installed. I'd use the OS that was on the old machine instead of trying to install Vista.

There could well be a sticker on the back of your laptop with the product code on for windows vista. After you have this Vista will need to be activated within 30 days of installing it.

My laptop turns on but then I get a blank screen.


Put in your windows vista CD and boot the PC. It will boot from the CD and you should be able to select a recovery/repair option. Otherwise I believe you can reinstall windows without loosing your data.

You really should backup your data and do a clean install of Vista.

Software not workin i guess


If it was pre-installed with Vista then you will need to call IBM Lenovo support for them to activate it.
If you purchased Vista as a standalone product then you will need to call Microsoft to have them activate it.

It sounds like someone else on the planet is using your number.

The code you have typed if for Vista Operating System from Microsoft. If Vista will ask for product key code then this key will be valid. Other than its valid for any one else product.

So, please can you tell me where you try to use this product key?

Thanks

Demo problem


Vista is a very demanding OS. Either buy a license or U will have to format UR drive to put XP back on. Vista is NOT an upgrade, it is a 64 bit OS. XP is a 32 bit OS. Like U, I like XP. Been down this road.
