How do I fix a pop up notification that says my Windows did not pass genuine Windows validation?

You didn't mention your OS? Your OS is not Genuine. You need a Product Key. What exactly does the "watermark" say in the bottom right of desktop. Someone has upgraded the OS with a copy of windows, maybe a beta version, that has expired and has no product key, which must be purchased. The computer was shipped new with Windows XP. This little program will help you determine the OS: If you supply the exact OS and the build, perhaps we can help you.

I just reformat my pc from someone i was fine when after 2 days a message telling im might be a victim of counterfeit software and yet validation is a failure everytime i validate can i...

This is due to the Product Key that has been entered is fake or invalid. The operting system will not tell you if it is a real key until the activation is attempted. I would suggest gaining a valid geniune copy of Microsoft Windows XP to remove the counterfit software icon.

How will i fix if the Windows did not pass Genuine Windows Validation and if i am a victim of software counterfiting?

You will need to purchase an authentic copy of Windows. All other avenues are not legal. You can then use the product key to activate your copy of Windows. When activating, use the telephone option to call Microsoft. They can help you if the copy of Windows you purchase isn't the same as the one you have installed. OEM vs. Retail, etc.

Good luck.

I tried to update my windows xp,but i found that mine is not an original pack of the screen turned into black color,and an error report telling that-you may be a victim of software...

the best thing to do is to buy one.
you can do that on line, if you have a working machine, otherwise, you have go to bestbuy, compusa or other outlet.
you can get serial number, 99% of them are used, thus Microsft call it counterfit. eventuly you have to buy one, in order for you to be able to update the OS software.

My computer is telling me i have a counterfit copy of windows XP. It is also telling me i have problems with my sound device and graphics/video card can you help me please.

If the Windows XP is from a different computer that has been registered with Mircosoft, it will read as conterfit - Windows XP is setup for one licence per computer. If that computer that XP was on is no longer, you might be able to call Microsoft and tell them that, and get them to validate that copy for you. As for your Sound and Graphics, it sounds like you don't have the correct drivers for them, each computer is different with different drivers needed for each interface. You will have to have the make and model for each device and find the drivers for them.
