I have an HP 8460p laptop that I purchased from my former employer. The operating system in Windows 7 pro 64 bit and the software will not recognize as genuine since the computer still thinks it is pa


Unless you know what you are dfoing, it will be more trouble than it is worth friend.
Your best bet is to purchase a new disc with Windows 7 64 bit and do a 'new install'. It will ask you to wipe the existing partitions and you can start anew using the full capacity of the Hard Drive.. Don't panic If you don't have a Product Key, you can download Win 7 installation discs all over the net; Win 7 WILL install and work fully, but will only give you 30 days to buy a Product key. before it locks you out.
Good Luck

My problem is i brought 1 laptop. inside of the hard disk is empty. so i ask them to install window 7 but 3 month after the window need to active again. so what will i do???


Basically, they just installed a trial version of Windows 7 that is why it is asking you to reactivate the Windows again.

You will need to purchase the full version of Windows 7. You can do that by just following the pop up message that is appearing on your screen to activate Windows 7.

HOW TO GET PRODUCT KEY FOR 2007 GENUINE WINDOW 7 IHAVE BOUGHT NEW LAPTOP WITH GENUINE WINDOW 7 AFTER 20 DAYS ALL THE EXCEL WINDOW STOPED WORKING WHEN I OPEN IT ASK FOR PRODUCT


If your Windows 7 is running fine then its okay. You have to determine that the product key is required by which software for example in your case it can be the "Microsoft Office" because "Excel" is a part of Microsoft office that you may have installed by yourself which is not genuine and its asking for the key.
If the message that pops up is not from Microsoft office then:
You do not have a Genuine Windows in your Laptop.

Please Take your laptop back to the outlet where you have purchased it and tell them with the purchase document (Like receipt and whatever the Warranty document) you have a counterfeit Windows 7 and you want a piece of Laptop that has Genuine Windows 7.

Windows 7 not genuine, copy of windows 7 ulitmate not genuine


The different ways to find out whether Windows 7 is genuine or not are as follows:
Activate Windows dialog box
Online verification
Offline verification

Activate Windows dialog box
The user can see whether Windows 7 is genuine or not by activating Windows dialog. To do this, one needs to go to 'Start' and open the 'Search' box. Type 'Inactive Windows' in the box and see whether the version is genuine or not. If the operating system is a genuine one, a message will be displayed stating "Activation was successful" with a logo of Microsoft on the right side of the screen.

Online verification
The user can also verify that Windows 7 is genuine or not by going to the official website of Microsoft and using the validation mechanism that determines the genuineness of an operating system. One may have noticed while downloading updates for Windows that the system asks for a verification to continue the download process. The user should always connect to the web using Internet Explorer and download updates only from the official website.

Offline verification
Another way of checking whether Windows 7 is genuine or not is by going to the 'Control Panel' of the system where one can find an option of system and security. The user needs to click on 'System' and go down to the option of 'Windows Activation'. If Windows 7 is genuine; it will show that Windows is activated along with its product details. This box will also display Microsoft logo to confirm its genuineness.

Hi Nelson

It appears that Windows7's Licensing Store may have become corrupt or somehow, unreadable. Please try the below steps to recreate the Store.

1) Click the Start button
2) Type: CMD.exe in the start search field
3) Right -Click on CMD.exe and select Run as Administrator
4) Type: net stop sppsvc (it may ask you if you are sure, select yes)
5) Type: cd %windir%\ServiceProfiles\NetworkService\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\SoftwareProtectionPlatform
6) Type: rename tokens.dat tokens.bar
7) Type: slui
8) After a couple of seconds Windows Activation dialog will appear.
9) You likely be asked to re-enter your product key and/or re-activate.

I purchased a Toshiba laptop recently. From time to time I am asked to enter my Product Key. What and where is my product key?


Was it a new laptop????
If it is asking to a windows product key, its under the laptop, printed on a COA sticker (Certificate of authenticity)
If it was not new.. and its asking for a windows product key, you may have a copied illegal installaton of windows. You can try using the product key under the laptop, but it may not work.

If its asking for a product key for Office, new computers come with a 30 day trial of office, after that you need to buy a key

Security key invalid for new PC with windows 7 OS to connect to my existing router


Hi. I think you should contact your Internet Service Provider for the security or just ask them on what is the security key. Also you could ask if you want just disable the password so that you can just connect to your wireless router without the password or just ask them to configure your router to have your prefer password. Hope this helps

You didn't say wheather the password was for the computer or Windows. 1. If the password is for the computer then you can change it in the BIOS by pressing F2 when the computer boots. This will take you into the BIOS. Here accros the top of the menu you should find a tab called security. Once opened you'll find where the password is entered or canncelled. 2. If it's in Windows you can reboot the computer with the Windows CD. You'l need to do an operating system reinstall. Once Windows asks if you want to install a new operating system continue from there. Two screens later Windows will ask if you want to reinstall the operating system to repair the present system. Reinstalling will delete all passwords.
