Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Licence Hi As your company was the one that I bought my upgrade from { VISTA PREMIUM HOME } downloaded on the 5th Nov2007 Due to a fault on my computer and following instructions from an IT person I formatted My disk. I did not think that I would lose my upgrade, and I hadn't written down the licence number. A number of your IT people tried to help but due an affliction in my body I am unable to control my hands. I have tried every way that I can to get my Licence Number, but it always goes wrong. Now Digital Box won?t open for me. I get Marketplace& see Digital Box but when I click on it computer says that it can?t open this page. Just the same answer when I try on other ways. This is very frustration for me. Can I get my money back and re set-up again, but without mishap? Thank you James Stark

    The problem is quite confused, is that you cannot install the upgrade or that Digital Box does not work? And what is Digital Box?

    Ok, then the license is in the email, it will be something like this: FCKGW-RHQQ2-XXC23-YU99P-SS718

    I mean the one above is just an example, it won't work. Check your email for a similar code.

    If you lost the email contact Microsoft.
    Can you also post here the complete name of the vendor where you purchased from, I believe Fixya does not sell, must have been a third part (website etc.).
    Please post details so that I can give you the right address to contact. This will speed up things.

I need a serial number from a acer notebook running windows vista premium/home premium. Mine is a 751h and runs basic, so they won't ship me the free upgrade. However, there are videos all over the...

The free upgrade is sent out by the laptops manf. directly to you as long as you bought the laptop in the past 4 months. It is regardless of the current version of Windows Vista that you are running. According to an article found here

"Acer says "shipments will begin in increments. All orders will be handled on a first-in, first-out basis." So if you bought a computer last week, you could be at the end of a long line."

Best you can do at the moment is just wait, your not going to be able to do much till Acer ships out that upgrade. Even if you did install Windows Vista Premium, you would be stuck till you got the Windows 7 from the manf.

Product key

if you have bought the upgrade from a retailer then take it back, if you have purchased a license from microsoft, then they will have record of your number and should confirm it for you, but i must admit it's very unusual for the number to be wrong if its a legitimate copy of Vista you are upgrading from or a legitimate product key number you have purchased.
