We purchase a new Compaq computer in September2009. We received our upgrade to windows 7. The product key is invalid and on the computer screen it says that this copy of Windows is not genuine - Build...

NO PC stated, just Compaq.
NO OS stated. xp to w7, you did not say from ?what.
this error happens if MS thinks XP is pirated.
The w7 disk words on top tell the real story,
upgrade, but is it a real MS, retail disk.
all the words on the disk tell me what it really is. post a photo?
if the PC is still original. (say HP XP unchanged)
the OS you run is from HP not MS.
that is why MS told you to call HP.
The HP software disk are custom to your PC.
unique. (windows, drivers and key HP apps)

The COA sticker on the bottom (license to use HP windows)
is a HP only license , called OEM.
that is why MS told you to ask HP.

best is to reload the OS.

if the PC was not slammed by others.
means someone put wrong OS on it. or pirated.
or new HDD swapped, or erased hdd.
then the F11 key works.
Restore F11, XP and then upgrade to W7.
Upgrages btw love to fail, its in the CARDS.
vast reasons for it, #1 is XP infections
XP has over 700 exploits, and love to fail
and upgrades as SIDE show fail.

boot the PC by power on and instantly hammer the F11 key the runs the HP Recovery off the original
HP Hard disk partition of same name.

if that is missing F11 feature.
then you have 2 choices
1: get the HP install media from HP. call them.
2; or buy a retail MS windows 7 disk. $120

see below for #2 above
its best to keep restore media on any owned

PC so when the hard drive fails, you are ready.

here is the other way, from MS

most stores sell w7-32bit home.

here is one

also at newegg
and at amazon.
this is retail disk and runs on most PC made.
after using retail disk

better is to buy a used PC with w7 on it
so you get HP support and MS support.

You can try this :

2. If you want to install windows xp. Use upgrade is recommended than new installation because it has high risk. If you use upgrade you need to uninstall all program first and backup your file.
3.If the problem persist, try to uninstall program that manage you PC. This program sometimes make your computer problem and contain virus.

My RCA TH1101 MP3 player says its corrupted

This link should have the firmware upgrade that you need - if you correct the firmware upgrade link and not some other link, then it will not prompt you to do anything with Windows Media Player 11.

Screen says "file system corrupted!"

i dropped mine one day and it started saying this
after hitting it for a while as my natural cave-man instincts would have me do, I held down the joystick and the power button while plugging it in, it connected to the computer (as it had previously failed to do) and I had to profile the songs once more...give it a try, I was just as hopeless as everyone else
