There are many possibilities why you're encountering this problem.. oh by the way? Where did you get the upgrade disc?

Then here's the thing. When you installed this upgrade:
-if its not asking you for a product key, then maybe its an OEM version of an upgrade disc. meaning to say, its designated for a certain computer only.
-if it asked you for the product key and it still prompts you with an error regarding the Windows Genuine Certificate, the product key that you typed in could be wrong or the license could already be in use by other users.

and regarding the original Operating system that came with your computer which is Vista, I would suggest you try reinstalling it with the disc that came with your computer when you bought it. and if you want to upgrade it back to Windows 7. try contacting your Computer manufacturer and request for upgrade discs for Windows 7

Background is always black and theres always a "you may be a victim of software counterfeiting" at the lower right corner of the monitor. Hope someone help me

You need to reinstall the operating system and see if that repairs the problem. I had this same issue about a month ago. What happened, assuming you went through the activation process and I assume you have Windows Vista installed, is the file that has you activation information in it was corrupted and needs to be rebuilt. Use the System Recovery CD's, make sure you save any data you need and have the installation disk for anything you added after the computer was purchased. Microsoft ended up sending me a set of installation disk after they confirmed that I had previously registered the product and had a legal copy.

You have 2 options (purchase)
1. upgrade the win vista to win 7 - you need to check the type of win vista that you have if it is 32 or 64 bit or HOME BASIC HOME PREMIUM PROFESSIONAL ULTIMATE
home basic is not win 7 upgrade supported.

2. Win 7 OS full version disk.

Back up all of your files before doing anything on your computer.

Iam dr.mallik from A.P .Ipurchase lenovo notebook y510.for my intreast i changed operatingsystem window vista homepremium to window question is how can i install nvidia drivers to my notebook...

Hello Dr Mallik,

Normally your operating system will find the correct drivers for your hadware, but if have the orginal disc's with the computer system then I suggest you use them to install the drivers onto your computer. Falling that you could always go the internet and search on to locate drivers for youe operating system.

Please let me know how you get on.
