Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a ASUS notebook and recently bought a copy of Windows Vista Ultimate. However, nobody has noticed me of the thirty day activation period and when it expired, the computer asks for the installation password. When I typed it in, the system said that the password is correct but is of a different version and therefore is incorrect. Now, the computer is locked up. The thing is, I want to re-install using my copy of XP which I am sure that works but cannot re-enter using SafeMode or MS-DOS. Any help or suggestions will be grateful and much appreciated

    Have you changed the boot order in bios to make sure the comp is set to boot from the cd before the hd?

I want activation key for compaq 6735s windows vista ultimate


One of the options when you activate is to activate by phone. Select this option and call Microsoft. They can provide you with a legal key.
If you have a pirated copy of the software, notify Microsoft of where you bought it and they will give you a free copy.
If this answers your question, I'd appreciate 4 thumbs. I do this for fun and do not get paid.

You need to install windows 7 (32 bit) not 64. To change to 64 you have to make internal changes and updates to your notebook. Your notebook is set up for 32 bit systems.

Unable to obtain activation code


If you have purchased a copy of Windows with your PC there will be a license stick on the side of your case. That will contain your product key. To activate you can either active via internet or you can contact the microsoft activation center to assist you.
If you purchased a boxed copy of Vista Ultimate then there will be a product key on the back of the box.
If however, you have installed a copy of vista ultimate which was not purchased (e.g. copied from a friend) - you will need to purchase a valid license from Microsoft.
