Re: counterfeiting...

This happens when you install an update from microsoft for Windows, and particularly Windows XP. Some people install copies of the retail vesions of windows that came with another computer. And this may lead to another problem. Such as Windows genuine advantage validation checks to fail. This happens when you use a pirated copy of windows XP.

It is always suggested that using a genuine purchased and licensed copy of windows XP will ensure technial support from Microsoft and their partners. This will help you from the message that you have been encountered.

If you believe you are using an original purchased version of Windows, then I would suggest you to change the windows Product key. And this will help you stop this message.

The reason you get this meassage is that, the windows product key that you are using is illegal and blacklisted by microsoft. Changing the key to an original product key will solve this issue.

The Product key changer tool is available for download free from microsoft' website.

Victem of a software counterfeiting

Sounds like you have an illegal version of Windows XP installed. If it is XP and you would like a legal version which can also get all security updates and downloads from Microsoft you just need to change the keycode. I sell keycodes at $70 which i can email also a very simple to use keychanger program. Cheers from Scott

Ask my laptop is a victim of sofware confitieting frm soft ware genuine soft ware

you need to purchase legal software, uninstall the software you have and re-install the legal copy.. If this includes your operating system, then you should backup all the files you wish to keep BEFORE re-installing the operating system.. You can sometimes get around re-installing if the software will accept a legal product key but you will still have to purchase a full and legal copy to do this. Once done, you can contact microsoft for a release code..

After 4mat bcome 4bit display

after formating, your pc/laptop need to be install with "driver". Driver is a software in a cd which come along when you buy the computer. iif you have the cd insert the cd and install all the application given. normally when you insert the cd the application will automatically start and you will see it appear on your screen. click the application and it will install automatically.

if you already done that, right click anywhere on your screen and select properties, a panel will open. on the top you will see desktop,theme,appearance, screen saver and setting. select setting and you will notice a drop down menu and select 32 bit.

if it still didnt work your computer might have "graphic card". it also will have its own cd when you purchase it. same method, insert the cd and follow the instruction. if you have no cd please identify your pc/notebook model and post it here.
