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.

When I start my laptop amessage arrive for "Activation code" so please give me a vista activation code


If this is a brand new computer then that means that the Windos Vista installed in your computer is only a trial version which has an expiration date that's why its asking you now to purchase the Full Version of Windows. You can contact Microsoft to purchase a full version of windows vista or try to verify to the manufacturer or the store where you bought if the computer only comes with a tril version of windows vista.

How to install window vista?


is it a genuine disk or a pirate copy?
If its a genuine version of vista, product key should be on the back of the cd case, or on the back of the instruction manual, if its not there then bring it back to the shop you bought it in,

I cant log on to my system, it is asking 4 updation of vista


When you try to activate vista, Microsoft checks if the 25 character code from the vista cd case was submitted before by someone.
If you bought the windows so it is genuine then obviously noone has submitted the key before, so they accept it, and send back the confirmation ID. So that is where you get it from.

Since you do not have internet, you probably have to do the phone way of activation. So when windows prompts you for activation choose

"Use the automated phone system to activate"

This gets you the phone number related to your area. Select your nearest location and click next.

Click continue for UAC support.

Then you get the local phone number and a set of numbers generated by windows which you will need during the phone call.

Call the activation phone number that it gave you, it will be a machine voice on the phone asking you to repeat the numbers that windows gave you or type them into your phone via the buttons. Do one of the two.

The automated service then gives you the confirmation ID. Make sure you have paper and pen ready, write the numbers down! (should the activation be NOT successfull, do not hang up, you will be transferred to an operator).

If it worked, and the automated service gave you a confirmatino ID, then type the confirmation ID into your vista activation screen, where it asks for it.

Then you get the activation was successfull window and you are done!!:)

If you are unsure about the whole process, then just get so far to call the number, and fail at the activation, stay on the line and wait for the operator, they will help you with it, just explain the situation.

If you have any more questions, please let me know, will gladly help.

Let me know if this worked and if it helped, please rate me. :)

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.

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.
