When you say vista ultimate was installed, do you mean you installed it yourself?
Is the COA on the bottom of the laptop for Vista Ultimate?
If the COA is not for ultimate( usually home or premium) then the copy of Windows re installed may not be genuine.
If all is well and it is a genuine copy then a call to microsoft is your only option(IF it is a retail copy)
If it is an OEM copy of windows you may have to pay for a new key

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.

I instal Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition trial 1 month please tell me product key


If you are using the trial version, you should be able to use without entering any product key for 30 days.

Anyway, there is a way to use it for 120 days:

if you have purchased legal copy of Vista, you will be having a Part Number on the Vista DVD. Call Microsoft Tech Support and provide them with this Part Number. they will get a new product key. This will work for you.

it only means to say that you need to install a full version of the microsoft windows vista ultimate edition. you need to purchase to any near computer shops so that you can enter the product key. or you may contact your computer manufacturer to provide you the installation disk of the softwae you want to use.
