After 5 years, Win 7 now say the copy is not genuine ????

Q: After 5 years, Win 7 now say the copy is not genuine ????

I was able to solve some hardware problems on my husbands Dell XPS-8300 and it finally stopped freezing. The hardware problem obvious messed up the Windows installation, and because my husband not liked all that junk that came installed from Dell and wanted the HD partitioned in drive C (for software only) and drive D (for all the data), I erased the HD and partitioned it. BEFORE erasing the HD I ran Belarc and printed all the information, including all the software licenses of what was installed. Then I reinstalled Win 7 Ultimate 64 bits on drive C, from scratch on his computer. I typed in the license key that I have from that printed Belarc information, or in other words, the key that Dell used to install and activated this Windows installation. I ran all that updates. Today I restarted computer to do some more installations and by surprise received a message that Windows is not genuine and asked me to type a license key. I repeated the key with what it came installed by Dell. It refuses the key. It opens a windows that says ?the software licensing service reported that the computer BIOS is missing a required license?. I went to MS website to activate it, same problem, they tell me I must pay $199 for the Windows installation. This Windows is running since November 2011 when my husband made the big mistake to buy a Dell computer :-( - looks like Dell is putting pirate software on the computers they sell us and MS accepted it for 5 years??? Any idea what BIOS license they are talking about?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Started the PC yesterday and got a message that my copy of Windows is not genuine, after several years of use. Have tried some steps I found online but generally come up with errors in activation (0x80070005). Last thing I did with the computer before this was install Comodo backup. Tried restoring to earlier backup but problem persists. Have tried Microsoft support but can never get through after extremely long waits. Any help?

A:After 4 years Windows 7 is now not genuine?

Hi Tom,
That install is NON-Genuine.
The product key in use has been "lifted" from the COA sticker on another W7 computer.
The Bios for yours is dated 2 years prior to the official OEM release of W7, (the product type code key in use on your comp)

I suspect this was caused by you installing IRST drivers which broke the activation work around.

Was faced with this issue after turning on an HP G61 laptop today - it was fine yesterday. The computer was purchased new four years ago from PC World. Nothing has been downloaded or installed in the last couple of months except LastPass (around three weeks ago).
A System Restore to a week ago made no difference. I extracted the Windows product key with SIW (the sticker on the bottom of the laptop has worn away) and re-entered it to no avail. We have the recovery discs that we made when it was new out of the box, but don't want to use them if I don't have to.

Thanks in advance for any help.

A:Windows suddenly 'Not Genuine' after four years

OEM Activation 2.0 Data-->
BIOS valid for OA 2.0: no, invalid SLIC table

The problem is that your system is unable to properly read the BIOS SLIC table that should be present in the system to be able to self-activate the OS.

You need to change the Product Key to the one on the COA sticker on the machine's case (or inside the battery compartment), using the Change Product Key link at the bottom of the System properties page.


You may need to activate by phone.

Hi, I have started having activation issues and not genuine warnings after nearly 3 years of using my PC. Here is my current situation.

When I am connected to the internet,

Computer > Properties shows "Windows Activated" and the Genuine MS logo.
MGADIAG shows "License Status: Licensed"

When I am disconnected from the internet,

Computer > Properties shows "3 days until automatic activation. Activate Windows Now"
MGADIAG shows "Additional grace period (KMS license expired or hardware out of tolerance)"

I use this PC as a DAW (i.e. strictly for music production). It is disconnected from the internet for long periods of time. I am seriously worried about this activation issue I can't overstate how worried I am.

Here's the history

Sep 2010
I bought an i7-930 PC desktop, Windows 7 Professional x64 OEM on a disk (not preinstalled), and SSD from one of the most reputable computer stores. I installed the SSD, and then installed Windows 7 and activated without a hitch. From Sept 2010 to 15 Aug 2013, I had no activation or genuine copy warnings. 3 years.

July 2013
I upgraded from my 60GB SSD to 240GB SSD by copying the 60GB to 240GB, and there were no problems. I then upgraded from 6GB to 18GB RAM. Again no issues. Do I need to rebuild license store because it's a new SSD disk? Again, I had absolutely no issues after this.

Yesterday I received a notice that my Windows 7 is not genuine. Below is the reports I run.

The W7 runds my HP desktop I bought 1.5 years ago. Since then I've been receiving updates from Microsoft. I don't remember whether I registered directly with Microsoft or just followed the HP instructions.

About a month ago I started to experience some difficulties with my computer. It would freeze and the Task manager wouldn't be available. The computer would start working after I haphazardly stir cables inside, unhook and hood back the cables connected to the HD.

Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated.

After having previewed my post I can't see how wrap function should work. I didn't edit the report, just pasted it. I hope I did it right.

There was a 5 page thread on trying to downgrade from Ultimate to Win 7 Pro but I thought I should start a new thread. I have a thead on a different forum but was hoping someone here might know the answer.

Users computer says Windows is not genuine, was 7 pro, in Sept 2013 we upgraded to Ultimate to use Bitlocker. System bought from Dell, used Anytime Upgrade to Ultimate. I spent ages on phone with Microsoft today, they have completely agreed both copies are valid, and the computer is saying they're not, in error, they will not admit that it's a Windows Update that caused it likely.

They took over remotely, and 30 minutes later gave up, none of the methods worked. She then advised me to BUY a copy of 8.1 and do a clean install. I don't want 8.1, if we have to reinstall I'd rather do Win 7 Pro again(same valid code) and then up to Ultimate again(same valid code), or go to Win 10 when it comes out. Of course you can't upgrade a "non genuine" copy of Windows 7 to win 10, even if it is in fact genuine.

We don't want to have to reinstall. MS also told me I need to downgrade to Win 7 Pro, put in the code, then upgrade to Ultimate. To do that they said I have to do a clean install. I've seen all the links to Windows Downgrader but we aren't exactly thrilled to be advised to use a 3rd party app. I have not tried the registry suggestions yet, I'm not particularly comfortable dealing with the registry. Two questions.

If MS had been willing to just give me a new U... Read more

Hello - I have been using Windows 7 for two years now, but all of a sudden I am getting messages that the product is not genuine. After two years!

A:Windows 7 not genuine message after two years of no problems

Hello fusermarucs and welcome to the forums

Where did you purchase your Windows 7 license?

The license in use is from a MSDN subscription which have very strict usage requirements. Unless you obtained this key from an employer, educational institute or your MSDN/TechNet subscription, your license is counterfeit.

I bought a new Gateway DX4840 from Fry's about 2 years ago with Windows 7 Home Premium. It has the genuine windows stickers on the side with the product keys. It has worked fine until about a month and a half ago when it suddenly said windows is not genuine. I called Microsoft and they walked me through several things and then finally said it was Gateway's fault and I had to contact them to fix it. When I tried to contact Gateway they said my warranty is expired so they will not even talk to me on the phone unless I pay to renew my warranty. So instead I tried to just re-format my computer and re-install from the recovery disk. This worked for awhile and I was able to re-active windows and it said it was genuine again (also did all the MS updates at that time), but then about a week later the error popped up again. So this time I did a full hard disk wipe (before I only reformatted the C drive and left the data partition intact). This time it has been good for a little over two weeks but today again it showed up as not genuine. Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated. Feel like it might be time to move to Linux.

Hello and welcome sudukai Hum pretty ordinary service from M$ and the dealer eh?

If you have the original activation code then you could try this USB Windows 7 Installation Key Drive - Create

If all else fails then personally I would stick a SSD in buy an OEM and just install that but depends on th e budget of course and if the SSD is going to be big enough for what you want it for - but you can back up data to externals to free the SSD up a bit if it gets a bit full.

Can anyone help?

My sister's computer has been running Win7 Ultimate x64 for more than two years. We obtained the copy from Amazon. The copy we have appears in a genuine box, with COA with interwoven holographic strip, and holographic cds.

We went away camping for a week, turned on the computer on return, and the screen went black when the computer did the update check. Error code is 0xC004F200, and optional update delivery no longer works. There is an error code down the right corner, notification that build 7601, windows no longer genuine, etc.

This copy was only ever used once, and on this machine, and obtained for this machine. It has never been installed on anything else.

We checked the product key via computer properties, and it said that the product key suddenly no longer matched the product key on the box/cds. On trying to change it, a dialog box came up and said that the product key has been blacklisted. We researched this, and the net said to contact microsoft.

Can anyone give us help??


BTW, we ran the diagnostic tool as admin.

The Key in use is an MSDN Key from a not-for-resale MSDN account.
Unless you are an MSDN subscriber, you are not entitled to use the Key – and whoever sold it to you was not entitled to do so.
You need to claim an immediate refund from the vendor - do NOT accept the offer of a new key (all they are trying to do is to get past the 45-day claims window or avoid you sending the evidence of their crimes to the authorities)

The pirates have got VERY good at this over the past few years, as the price of equipment for manufacturing the packages drops, and as factories open in less well-policed countries.

Hi there,
I mentioned this in the Windows Updates section, but since it is a slightly separate issue I figured I'd post here as well. I began getting "Windows may not be Genuine" errors recently after having some trouble installing Windows Updates. I ran the diagnostic and here is what I got:

A:Started getting Windows not Genuine errors after 3 years w/OEM product

Both problems have the same source - possibly corrupt drivers, or possibly corrupted WU store.


This may simply be caused by a bad set of Intel Rapid Storage Technology drivers -

I got a notice after booting up my windows 7 ultimate today that it is not a legit copy.
It is a retail copy and has been running fine for a few years.
Nothing has been installed in the past few days and the only major thing I've done lately is to
remove a bunch of restore points to clear up a ton of space on my computer.
I'm at a loss at this point.
I've tried entering the product key, but it doesn't activate it.
 
any ideas??
 
Please can anyone help me....

When I built my last computer, it came with Windows 7 Ultimate as part of the kit. It is an unattended version and does NOT require entering a Product Code.

After installing it is activated. I installed Microsoft Security Essentials as the antivirus. After about 4 or 5 days it comes up and tells me it is NOT a genuine copy of Windows 7.

It is only installed on one pc. It was bought from a reliable company that I have been dealing with for years and they say that the install disk is genuine. The disk is the gold disk with all the holograms just as all Microsoft install disk are.

Is there a way to fix this?

If it worked after you put the keys in then stopped it isnt the keys. Check the system time on both machines.

I am currently running Windows 7 Professional SP1. However, it's not genuine. (Don't yell at me yet, let me explain)

I had an old computer that was running Windows Vista. It was official and had a Vista activation key. I then purchased a key that let me upgrade from Vista to Windows 7 Home Premium. I then got another upgrade key that upgraded me from HP to Pro. Skip ahead to me screwing up my computer, and not wanting to install from Vista and work my way up, I just installed an unlicensed Windows 7 Pro. Is there a way I can make this copy legal, or will I have to reinstall from Vista and work my way up?

A:Genuine Copy Help

What type of Upgrade did you get for the Home Premium to Pro?,
If if was the full retail package with disks etc, then you can do a repair install using the disks.
If it was an Anytime Upgrade, then you'd have to start with Windows 7 Home Premium, get that activated, and then do the upgrade again.

I have a Family Pack for Windows 7 Home Premium that was purchased from Office Depot about 6 months ago and only installed on one computer. About a week ago when I logged in I got a blue screen with "Windows 7; Build 7600; This copy of Windows is not genuine" in the lower right hand corner and Windows 7 will not start. I called Tech Support and they told my that the warranty had expired and it will cost me $59 for them to give me a fix. Why should I have to pay for a fix for something that is obviously a bug in Windows 7? Is there something I can do to correct this short of reinstalling Windows 7?

Whilst away last week my son unbeknown to me decided I needed windows 10. I am as my user name says I am useless and only use my laptop for email shopping and bbc iplayer. All seemed ok the first time I turned it on but after traveling I was tired and forgot to turn it off, (I think)
Next morning I tuned it on and on the screen came the Microsoft logo, Then the option to accept or decline window 10. I declined and it said it would try and restore windows 7. But , there's a message every time I turn it on to say its not a genuine copy. Now I am using as normal every thing is the same my passwords are still stored and my favs are still there. What to do? I still have the discs but I have no idea what to do and I do not want to use the use of my laptop. If I was to change to windows 10 would it be the better option.

Having discovered that my copy of Windows 7 (Ultimate) is not genuine, I am in the process of purchasing the software from Amazon.

My question is a simple one:

When I have the new software do I need to reinstall Windows onto a clean disc, or is it sufficient to enter the key from the new package onto the already installed but non-genuine version?

A:This copy of Windows is not genuine.

Generally you can do that and it will work. Depends on where you got the pirated source from as I have seen cases where these copies are obtained from legitimate MSDN (or some other Microsoft) media and there's nothing inherently wrong with them until someone comes along and either gives you a bad product key or cracks it. If you simply were given a bad product key, putting in the new product key should be sufficient; if however the Windows installation came from dubious sources or was modified in odd ways, I would suggest you reinstall as you never know what bad software could have been included in it.

Vista has been installed for a while, now it is suddenly saying it is not a genuine copy (was happy the six months or so I had it). Now it is suddenly saying it's not genuine and I have to reinstall, I have internet access over a phone line but since I have a mobile I don't pay for a landline on top of that.

Is it normal for people to have to pay extra on top of the originally buying price to reactivate a Vista or is there some way to reactivate without having to pay more money for something already paid for?

A:This copy of Windows is not genuine

This message is to remind people to activate their copy of Windows. You can get more information by visiting: http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/.

If you have already purchased your copy, then you have no worries. You?ll simply need to verify a few things.

Cheers,

So i tried using my hard drive from one computer on a different computer and it didn't start. So i put the hard drive back into my main computer and when i logged in my desktop was black and said "Windows 7 Build 7601 This copy of Windows is not genuine" at the bottom right. I didn't buy windows for this computer because the hard drive is from a past windows computer (I believe). I keep getting a pop-up window that says"You may be a victim of software counterfeiting". Please help.

A:Not genuine copy of windows?????

Hi, You have to contact Microsoft to work this out. The legal document says, you CAN'T use one license for more than one computer. In your case, you are using license from ONE computer to OTHER computer. Regards.

Hi! I purchased a new HP and it came with a Windows 7 O.S. DVD. I installed it fine and it has been working fine. All of the sudden I started getting error messages and warnings that say things such as "You may be a victim of software counterfeiting" and "This copy of Windows is not genuine." It gave me the option to insert the product key for activation and when I entered the key I was given with the disc, it said that product key was invalid for this copy of Windows and I have to run a Windows 7 setup or enter a Windows 7 Professional product key. I am not computer illiterate, but I am pretty darn close! HELP!???

Hi! I'd love some help/advice regarding messages I have just recently started getting saying that I may be the victim of fraud because my copy of Windows is not genuine.

I purchased the pc used from a local pc store about 2yrs ago. I knew it was a used computer and have not really had any problems with it, so it surprised me to be getting these messages just now. I don't know how this works with reselling used pc's and the OS that's on them, and I have not yet had any success with contacting the sales person who sold me the pc.

I'm wondering if anyone has any advice or information regarding this issue. I'd greatly appreciate it.​​​
 

A:Help! Non-genuine copy of Windows ?

This is the only fix and it is cheaper than purchaing it thru a store.

Microsoft did introduce a program where they would replace a pirated copy of XP if it was unknowingly acquired and you will find the details of that offer at this link. I think the best thing for the member to do is to contact Microsoft and they may be able to help the member out.
