Purchase the operating system from Microsoft and input the key it gives you. You do not need to install the OS again...just need a valid key.

You seem to have been duped with a PIRATED OPERATING SYSTEM sir and there is no magic key program that will active your laptop if the COA STICKER KEY on the bottom of the laptop does not work you will need to buy a legit version of Windows to install and activate. Searching the operating system on the laptop now WILL NOT produce a valid key! Check Ebay for "retail boxes" of Windows and there are good bargains to find there for Windows 7.

If its a pirated copy of windows it wont work unless you have the key if it is your own copy or what came on the computer you should have a Product key on a windows sticker on the side or the back. Make sure you put that key in correctly. If you dont have a key and its pirated the best thing you can do is recover your computer with your original disks back to what it came with. You cant update a pirated copy most of the time or it will detect it and do that to your system.

I need activation key on my vista basic


You were supplied with an activation key with the purchase of Vista Basic. It is on a sticker either on the package the disc came in or on the computer it was installed on.

Requesting keys from other users is software pirating and illegal.

Activation key for vista ultimate


If this is a legal copy of Vista, the key code is attached to the disc package or on the side of the case on a desktop pc or on the bottom of the case on a laptop. If this is a pirated version, purchase a legal key code from microsoft as this has several benefits, least of all the windows update site will not disable a legal copy but it can and does disable pirated copies..

Hi ,
Downloading so-called free serials is illegal , Microsoft will identify them as pirate and will prevent you from activating your O.S.
You have to buy a genuine key at Microsoft's site .
For any other situation , please call the Microsoft Product Activation Center at 888-725-1047.
Regards .
