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.

Did a clean install of my laptop. Windows does not acknowledge Windows Vista Home Premium


There will be a sticker on the laptop wi the product key. It will be in the format of xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx Sometimes the sticker will be under the battery. If the sticker is not on the laptop it was either removed, or you need to make a complaint with Walmart.

The computer has Widows Vista Home Premium, but Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007 keeps asking for product key. I enter the Windows Vista product key (it says I'ts registered already) but I cannot...


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.

I don't have the recovery disk. How can I recover the Vista on the Laptop? Is there any key combination rather than recovery disk?


you can use another vista disk (can you borrow someones?) and have it in when you turn it on. press 'any key' when asked to, load up windows setup and then when it has finished loading choose repair/diagnose and select your copy of windows. You get an option in here to detect and repair starup problems, you can also use this to install a fresh copy of windows if that doesnt fix your problem, be careful not to install over the top of what you have already if you dont want to loose things.

you need to bear in mind that you need to have a CD key for the version of windows that you are installing, the vista home premium key on the bottom of your laptop is no good if you have borrowed a home premium CD for example, you dont need a key to run the diag tools though
