Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition

2 Answers

We have activation key for computer. Son caused

We have activation key for computer. Son caused computer to crash, so I've taken pc back to 'new' status. System won't accept the activation key. From memory, we had to try to swap some numbers/letters as they looked the same, but now system won't let me activate. How can I optain a new key cheaply/instal the old activation key? Any help or advice will be appreciated. I didn call the help number, but they want me to email them a picture (can't upload this because of software and will need to do this from another computer).

Format the hard drive and re-install. Do not swap any letters enter exactly as it is shown.

If that fails and your son is a student you can buy Windows 7 from www.theulitimatesteal.co.uk which is Microsoft's student site

I just installed Alice Madness Returns on my new laptop.


Most key codes can only be used in one computer at a time, it seems that the game program thinks the key is in use in another computer which essentially it is, you can try contacting the company you got the game from and have the other laptop which crashed "disconnected" from the key code, you can also try to activate the game on a friends internet connection at their house this way the game won't recognise the IP address.

Disk Crash!


Borrow an operating system disk from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker to reinstall windows. Just borrow the version that your Certificate of Authentication (COA) sticker on the bottom of the laptop says. Also make sure you can read the Product Key Code on the COA. Also get the product key code for the disk you borrow because sometimes during installation or activation it will ask for the Key that is on your sticker, and sometimes it wants the key from the installation disk.

Just make sure you borrow the same version of windows that your COA says is installed on your system otherwise you'll have problems activating it.

I cannot get my internet exploxer to work on my Compaq Presario. It worked before. It stopped after my computer crashed. I cannot get wireless connection or land line


So ur files are still corrupt then. You can place your Windows Cd in and have it restore. However this can cause other issues later. Best thing to do is wipe it out and place the OS on there fresh again. If you do not have a CD borrow a retail version from a friend use your key. You may get a vallidation error stating u need to enter a new key. If so choice the telephone activation method. If still no help then choice operator and tell them ur hard drive crashed they will authenticate your current key.
