Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 1: Windows

1 Answer

Vista key My Gateway MT notebook, that was pre-loaded with Windows Home Premium, that I've had for about 15 months has just gone crazy. I turned it on this afternoon and i was greeted with a window telling me that my product key was invalid. I would ask Microsoft or Gateway about this problem, but i don't have Bill Gates' checking account. So does anyone have a clue what I need to do to get this notebook to run right again? Note: I uped the memory from 1gig to 2 gigs about two weeks ago.

Have you even given the product key out to anyone else? If you key is making the rounds in the warez boards, then Microsoft may have deactivated it. However, since you upgraded memory recently, it may be that the OS thinks that enough has changed that it is on "new hardware"

In either case the solution is the same: you will need to call the activation line at Microsoft and get a new key. It's a free call.

Unless you purchased the Office Home & Student 2007 software, it's likely that you simply have the trial version that comes pre-installed on many popular computers (e.g., HP, Dell, Gateway, Toshiba, etc.) Therefore, I recommend checking all of the documents that you received with your computer. If you purchased the software, you should be able to find the product key on one of the documents that accompanied your computer.
