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.)

HP DX2450 Microtower. This system comes with HP branded Windows XP install disk and a restore disk(among others). I wanted to perform a repair install on XP. Inserted the HP restore disk, system reported it sees a valid restore disk and ask for the Windows install disk. I put in the HP Windows XP disk, when it got to "install Windows" , I chose "repair an existing XP installation". When it finished installing, it ask for the product ID. I looked on the CD, in the i386 folder/unattend.txt, bottom line is the product ID. When I put in this key, it tells me it's not a valid key. Now I'm stuck. How can this not be a valid ID when it's on the same disk used to install Windows, and what can I do now?

Often the product key is on a stick attached to the computer.

Hi, I just got a ton of new parts in my pc (everything is new except the PSU, the HDD, and the video card). I upgraded to a 64-bit system, and bought a Windows XP x64 retail from my local Staples. Everything installed fine, until I got to the part where you define your locale, keyboard type, enter product key, etc. The part after setup has copied all of the files to the disk, its just finishing the installation. So when it asked for the product key I entered the one from the booklet that came in the box. It said: "The Product Id you entered is not valid.". So I typed it again, carefully checking each box to make sure I didn't enter it incorrectly. Then I pressed Next, and still the same error message. So I checked online and I saw a forum post on another website where someone had about the same problem, that said that the solution is to start the xp install disk again, go to the recovery console and execute the dskpart command. I did so, then proceeded to try reinstalling again, got to the same point and still the product key didn't work. I read somewhere that the product key and the product ID are two different things (from my understanding, one is the numbers that you use to prove you have genuine copy of windows and the other is the installations ID, that really has nothing to do with installing). The window specifically tells me to enter my product key, but the error says the product ID I entered is invalid. I can't afford to buy another key (I heard that Micros... Read more

Has Microsoft changed something in the latest April Windows Updates?
I create a default Windows 8 Enterprise VL image on my laptop in audit mode as I have always done previously.  Nothing has changed from my side.
When I install the image via WDS, everything installs fine.
When I use my WIM file to install via USB, it now comes up with:
The product key entered does not match any of the Windows images available for installation. Enter a different product key.
right after selecting the install language.
I have checked EI.cfg and it is normal:
[EditionID]
Enterprise
[Channel]
Volume
[VL]
1
I then tried adding PID.TXT with my Enterprise KMS key and, rather than error it then prompts me for a product key.
Surely using the VL install media it should never ask for a product key.  It never has before. (And I've never had to before)
I prepped the image as normal using:
C:\Windows\System32\Sysprep\Sysprep /generalize /oobe /shutdown /unattend:C:\Windows\win8unattend.xml
Any ideas?  I can't but help thinking something has changed in the latest batch of Windows Updates.  It's quite frustrating as not all my machines are capable of PXE, so I have to use USB.
The reason I think it is a recent change, is if I do a default install and DO NOT do any Windows Updates, it all works fine.  Only when I install the latest WU does it start doing this.

A:[NEW] The product key entered does not match any of the Windows images available for installation. Enter a different product key.

OK, So I've fixed it now, but I will still like to know WHY this has changed.

If i do this to my WIM, it then installs from USB:

imagex /flags "Enterprise" /info c:\temp\WIM\ME\install.wim "Win8Office2013Enterprise-x86" "Win8Office2013Enterprise-x86"

I wonder because I use the WDS capture image if this has somehow changed recently.
Very annoying, but now at least I can install my custom image :)

I picked up this lenovo laptop and shortly after I got it the HDD went out. I replaced the HDD and Installed a full version of Windows XP SP2 then used the Win 7 upgrade disc I bought. I did a clean install of the Win 7 then I activated it at that time without any issues. Some time after that I started getting the message it wasn't a genuine copy. I rearmed the time period but I'm not able to activate the copy again with the PID. I get the message this product is for upgrade and not a clean install. I need to find out if I will be able to register this copy or if I will need to start over from scratch. I did try putting in another PID but it didn't activate with it. I haven't been able to change the PID back due to the message I am getting about the upgrade not clean install.

I appreciate any help I can get with this issue.

So short story, I work at a college tech site that fixes student and faculty computers. A foreign exchange student from Japan with a Sony Vaio (most likely from Japan as well) managed to get a virus on his computer and he was blocked off our network. Our policy is that we wipe and reinstall the OS to ensure that the virus is gone. However, we didn't have any Windows 7 Home Prem media CDs so I downloaded a Win7 Home Prem 32bit iso off of MSDN and burnt it to disk. However, when entering the product key given on the bottom of the laptop(and I've checked 3 times now to make sure it's correct), I get a:

"Product key does not match the current Windows SKU" error.

Why is this happening? Do I need a certain burnt iso (from Sony in Japan?) because of the laptop's foreign origins or is something else causing the problem here?

I recently purchased a Precision M6800 (probably one of the last ) and now want to add an external slice-type battery. I did some searches on DELL web sites (my local Belgium one and some international ones) and on the www. This resulted in several product codes for what seem to be the same, or at least similar products: 451-11831 / 451-BBGJ / 312-1351. Can anyone tell me if those are all the same, or at least compatible products ? And more importantly: is any of those (or all 3) really the slice-type battery I am looking for to attach to the docking connector of my M6800 ?

A:product key: sticker on laptop key is different from actual product key???

The product key is encrypted in the Registry, so maybe one of those commands/utilities has the wrong encryption algorithm.

If you bought new the key on the sticker on the laptop is your personal unique key and the one in the system is the OEM's "volume license" key.

I have been reading posts on seven-/eight-/tenforums for years with pleasure and gratitude for all the solutions they provided. But my current issue is one of the strangest things I've encountered in all these years. Have been searching through a lot of posts but haven't found any similar issue (or solution for it) yet. So here it goes.

Symptom: the OEM product key in the registry of a Windows 7 Pro installation (laptop) does not correspond with the OEM product key in the laptop's BIOS.

Here's the situation in short. It concerns a laptop from a student friend of mine who asked me to upgrade her current Windows 7 Pro x64 OS to Windows 10. She couldn't tell me if the installation was the original OEM factory partition or if it (perhaps) could be a pirated version. Since I wasn't about to just upgrade to Windows 10 without checking the authenticity of the Windows 7 OS, I performed the regular checks: see if it was activated already by running the "Activate Windows" program (check), check under Control Panel -> System and Maintenance -> System tab if the OS was already activated (check) and run Microsoft's online Validation Tool (check). Everything seems fine, the OS is activated and genuine.

Still, the COA sticker was missing. My friend didn't have any physical recovery media or other stuff with a license sticker on it. So I thought I'd check the product key stored in the BIOS and compare it with the product key in the registry. If they'd correspond, all would... Read more

On a recently purchased, from a supplier believed to be reputable, refurbished 64 bit, Win 7-Pro, computer, the product key shown on the affixed COA and the product key retrieved with Magical Jelly Bean are different. In various places I have searched, I think I have learned that this often happens when big refurbishers use special OEM product keys when they refurbish PCs and install newer operating system software. Is this information still correct?

What happens if I choose to replace the existing HD in the PC after a HD failure or if I want a larger HD in the PC? Will the product key on the affixed COA work?

Should I, for the moment, 1) attempt to reactivate the OS with the product key on the affixed COA; 2) do nothing; 3) or something else?

Not positive, but I think so.

The Product Key on the COA should work regardless of what hard drive you use.

Should I, for the moment, 1) attempt to reactivate the OS with the product key on the affixed COA; 2) do nothing; 3) or something else?

Do nothing if Windows is currently activated and all is working well. If you ever have to re-install Windows, re-activate it using the Product Key on the COA sticker.

I will not question whether this is legal or illegal. This comes from Microsoft:

For non-corporate users there is this from my own experience: I have on occasion run into three or four customers who attempted what is known as casual piracy by installing his XP onto a second machine. I have had to get only one customer out of this mess (about two years ago or longer) but the workaround was easy. (By the time his grace period was up, he had installed many programs and didn't want to be forced to do it again.) We called Microsoft, gave them a credit card number and they worked us through some steps that fixed the problem.

We then rebooted and was asked for a valid key.

I do not remember the steps as it was quite some time back and I saw no reason to keep notes on it.

Microsoft asked no questions about why he attempted piracy. I think they are just happy to get the money.

I recently changed ISPs and added a Netgear wireless router to the modem. I configured the modem and router useing my PC laptop, and generated a WEP Key with 64-bit encryption. I was able to successfully connect with my WEP Key on my PC and on my TiVo, but my Mac (which is a new MacBook) will not accept my WEP Key, saying there is an error in joining the network.

The dropdown menu in the AirPort window has four choices: (1) WEP Password, (2) WEP 40/128-bit hex, (3) WEP 40/128-bit ASCII and (4) LEAP. I'm assuming that since my WEP key is set to 64-bit encryption, that I should use the first option, which is what I have been trying.

I was able to connect my MacBook to my old wirelss signal, which I have not disconnected it (it's cable-based and runs from a different modem/router; my new ISP is DSL-based), and that signal also has a WEP Key with 64-bit encryption.

I also tried disabling the WEP key encryption for a time, and then I was able to secure a connection to the new signal, but I want to maintain the encryption. Please help.

Try as I might, I can't insert a cd in the CD drive.
It has been working and I've tried EVERYTHING that's
on the help line, but really, it doesn't have a cd in
and when I try to put in a cd, it just goes in a bit and
then won't grab and pull it in. Feels like it's butting
against something hard and already in.

This is for a Mac OS X
Version 10.3.5
Processor 1.8 GHz PowerPC G5

Hi, is it possible to incluse a tick box on a html form which then 'energises' the 'Submit' button?

E.g. I have a form which i want people to read and agree (via a tick-box) to a disclaimer before the submit button on the form is energised.

I do have a vaugue knowlege of Html, but am stumped on this issue.

Thanks, Paul.
 

A:Accept 'Tick-box'

You need something other than HTML to accomplish this. SOme sort of active scripting. I an sure there something that can be done with Java type form validation.

Hello. I just brought home an HP All in One desktop. I sat and filled it in last night. I just tried to get on it and I can't get past the login screen. I wrote my password down and it won't accept it. It says my name and underneath, it asks for my psswd. My email is wrong. It says **REMOVED**. That's not me. I have spent 3 hours getting # after # from Microsoft and sites to log onto. Not ONE of them helps ant the online chat is worthless. Is anyone out there able to help me? I'm so upset. Thanks. Maggie

I have an ABIT KX7333 board with AWARD Bios/softmenu 3. I am using corsair pc2700 ddr ram and an Athlon xp 1800+. Everytime I go into my BIOS and change anything, namely the memory CAS from 2.5 to 2, or anything with the memory for that matter, it won't boot. I know the memory can run at that rate but it jsut isn't working. Also, I am using an Nvidia GeForce 4 ti 4200 vid card, and I can't change the AGP settings for optimal use. The only thing I can use is the optimum performance defaults, which is not as optimal as I know it can be. I have the latest Bios update, what is the deal here? Any input would be greatly appreciated
 

A:BIOS won't accept changes....?

Possibly insufficient power, I've had the problem in the past while trying to run larger amounts of RAM at higher speeds. I had to go to a 400 watt PS.

My Intel 975xbx (rev. 304) will accept three 1 GB sticks of Corasair XMS memory, but when I put a fourth stick in, I get the three beeps and it won't post. I have tried all four sticks in different combinations, so it isn't a particular module that is "bad". I followed the voltage settings recommended by Corsair and have tried altering them, but I can't get all four to work at the same time. They were all purchased together, by the way. I can't find anything on Intel's site or Corsair's sited about a known problem. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Bill

I bought a 15inch notebook in November, paying for Microsoft Word ,Home and Student package. It worked okay until January when Word became disabled, I received a message saying my subscription had been cancelled.(I'd paid to have the package permanently). I was advised to type in a product code. I typed in the product code HP had given me but got a message saying code was no good. I phoned up Microsoft. They said the code hadn't been activated by the seller and was of a type only given for trials anyway.I emailed the HP sales consultant. I got a reply which told me to contact technical support: no link, email address or telephone number. I wrote back, telling them to sort it out or at least pass me on to someone who could.After this I received a text telling me the product was going to be collected from me this Wednesday, Feb1. I got an email from the sales consultant implying i'd asked for this. There's some mention of a replacement but I haven't been told when this is going to be.I phoned up today and I could tell the guy speaking to me was giving me a load of guff. he said the product could only be fixed by them collecting it. He said he'd email as to when a replacement would arrive but I knew he was making it up and the email hasn't arrived.They want to collect the laptop on Wednesday February 1. If I let them collect it I've got no idea when a replacement will arrive and they might try to argue there's nothing wrong with the laptop.I've... Read more

Hello,

I have done everything I can think of to allow incoming RDP sessions, but it is not working.

I have checked the box under system properties/remote (Allow Remote Assistance connection to this computer) and I have check the box under McAfee Firewall/ports and system services for port 3389.

I have also temporarily turned off the firewall....no good.

I know that system I am RDP'ing from works because I can get to a Windows XP machine.

Thanks in advance.

A:Will not accept RDP incoming

I just bought some Maxell DVD-R discs which won't work with my Win7 drive.

I've never paid much attention to what I use before, but surprised about this. My other discs that work fine are Memorex DVD+R.

I verified my DVD drivers are up to date.

Please advise.

A:PC won't accept Maxell DVD-R

There have always been different types of DVD RW disks +R and -R being the main ones, check the specs of your Writer to see if you can burn the disks you have. Of course some systems can be temperamental and refuse to accept a certain batch of disks, A certain manufacturer's disks, or even individual disks of a specific batch

What is the highest CPU speed supported by an Abit SD7-533 Motherboard?
 

A:What CPU will this motherboard accept

I would suppose these vague lists are close to the truth http://www.cpu-upgrade.com/mb-ABIT/SD7-533.html but it might support faster P4s with 400 FSB, too.
