My system is showing that this copy of windows does not window validation

the COA id number will be afixed on the computer which is used to validate online. If missing people do sell these COA labels on Ebay from broken down computers although questions should be asked before purchasing. You will need to know if the COA can still be used

Vista ultimate window xpired

Have you had your vista OS validated before the expiration date?If not it will do expire on you.If you bought the copy of Windows vista it will come with a product key.Backup your documents and get a fresh install of the OS,then don't forget to validate it online or thru the phone(be ready with the product key).Validation of your OS is important and it will not expire on you.

Have a w3609 e machine its currently it has vista on it. me restore disk didnt work. im having nothing but problems with it.want to put it back to factor specks?


When a restore disc won't do, here's what to do. Find someone with a retail OEM Vista Disc of the same version of your machine. You should have a COA sticker on your PC with a valid Vista License #.

Boot up the Vista disc, run setup, if it asks for the serial give it. If it gives you problems, call Microsoft and tell them you don't know where the "blank" disc you got came from but you have a valid COA sticker and you want them to give you a Validation code RIGHT NOW. They'll do that.

After you have Vista running, go to your machines support site on the web and download the drivers for your OS to the desktop in a new folder you made for them and install them.

You may have to download the LAN driver on a memory stick on a friends puter to load on yours to get you connected to the net to download the rest.

This is very general but you'll get good at it.

Best Regards

Its a tosibha l300 about a year old.i cannot find the disk and cannot start the comes with the blue screen of death only for a second any ideas

Not much you can do without either a restore cd or a windows cd.
If you have a valid COA on the bottom of your laptop with a valid windows serial, then maybe a friend can lend you a windows disc or even look for a copy of the same OS via a torrent site. If you use your own Windows key that has been paid for, then the OS should register ok.
Most new laptops/pc's dont come with a restore disc or a windows disc, but rely on you making your own when first using the computer. Most people dont

My product key is not valid but I rreally typed the correct key.

If you have definitly typed it in correctly from the COA on the reverse of the laptop you will need to call microsoft.
If you are re installing windows, are you using the same OS type (home/premium/ultimate) windows disc with the same Windows key on the COA lable .
you cant use say a windows xp pro disc with a windows xp home windows key

Need a bootable disk for my window vista i have two pcs can i copy it from my other computer

You cannot do this, you need valid copy of Windows for each machine, or you will not be able to receive critical updates, which are.... critical.

30 day use Windows Xp Pro

The problem is with the actual key that you are using. Not your computer, or the components inside of it. If you are certain that you are using a valid key Its likely that you have a a key for windows home, and you are trying to install windows professional, or visa versa... Either way, If all else fails, you could replace the OS ( Buy or download) much easier than the hardware inside your computer.

Basically your computer is fine, just get a valid OS. If your adventurous try ubuntu.

Hope this helps!
