After the new motherboard and processor installation Windows requires key, key to the sticker will not validate.

I installed a new motherboard and processor to my PC and now it's me demanding in the news two days to activate windows. I type the product key that is located on the sticker and it refuses to validate. Assistance is needed.

The key on the sticker code is assigned to the brand of the computer to which it is applied. Regardless of the brand, changed the m/b and the CPU (unless provided by the original manufacturer is a NEW computer.)

If the advice of George do not work, you will need to purchase Windows 7 new...

  • Windows 7 genuine? New motherboard and processor

    Hello

    My motherboard and processor is dead, and you can buy them is out, so I had to buy a different motherboard and a different processor. Nothing has changed. Windows 7 activated without problem, it says "The Activation was successful" and that my Windows 7 is "authentic".

    What I've heard of before is now Windows 7 becoming not authentic after the installation of updates. Is this true? I have a legitimate copy of Windows bought on Amazon. I've already talked to Microsoft to see if I could turn on a new motherboard and CPU, and they said that the key was "good" and I could activate on the new Board of Directors and the CPU.

    So is this windows genuine? I have no call at all MS activation. And it will become inauthentic after installing updates?

    Thank you for your help. Happy new year!

    Alex

    Very well. I was advised by Tom Hardware forums and Windows 7 Forum that as long as the button is activated, it will be good to use, and it can be activated because unlike most recent motherboards, the motherboard has no SLIC, integrated into the BIOS feature.

    Thanks for your help.

  • If I put a new motherboard and Cpu in my computer it will affect the license of vista 64

    I thought to upgrade my computer with a new motherboard and processor will this affect my license of vista, I guess I'll have to reinstall after I change them.

    OEM is OEM

    "If Vista is preinstalled on your computer, or you purchased an OEM/license disk, they are both classified as an OEM license and are not transferable.

    you are the System Builder

    The license of Vista OEM is related to the original computer it is installed on and dies with the computer.
    You cannot transfer it to another computer/laptop.

    This is why the OEM license you bought was cheaper than a retail sales license

    and Microsoft normally class the motherboard as the heart of the machine.

    you need to reinstall vista as the existing hard drive installed vista installed the old motherboard drivers

    You can try the tips I gave you in the 1st answer, if you have problems

    Good luck

  • What are my options since I changed my motherboard and processor and now license is not valid?

    Friends, I had problems with my old build of three year with windows 7 pro 64 oem.  only now, I discovered the reason for windows refuses to activate on new construction, that I had to do because of these problems. I didn't have to have a new motherboard and processor would make unnecessary the my copy of windows. It was in my mind that there where windows 'lived' was in the hard drive. one of the reasons why I had to build another 'computer' should make a visual studio 8 microsoft c ++ problem I could not find any solution. now after an unexpected and costly reconstruction, I don't have the money to get a new license. so now, I guess that in 13 days I no longer have a computer at all. It's incredibly disappointing for me. are there any other options out there for me? Thank you for your time and your consideration.

  • New motherboard and CPU... Running slow

    The back story:

    First let me preface this by saying: "I don't know much about computers.  OK, with that of the road, I have a Presario SR1703WM under XP. I added two gigs of memory a couple of years and it was running fine for what I needed.

    About a year or two back... It got to where I could not close without waiting a long time to get it to even start upward. I was told that the phones went wrong. Anyway... the food has recently taken a dive.  I replaced it, but the computer had apparently had inhaled, it is the last and sang with the choir invisible.

    I decided to fix it myself and in the process, destroyed the CPU... He looked like a little in the wake of a 747 crashing in a field of culture.

    A friend IT just happened to have a new motherboard and CPU which it replaces for me (God have mercy on its processor)

    The Situation as it is:

    The computer came back from the dead, but he is running a bit slow sometimes.  It is not constant. It seems to happen on Yahoo mail and when I watch Youtube videos or when there is a site with a kind of animation advertisemens.  Yahoo email who has a little.  PC Doctor 5 for windows came with the original computer, but now she says that she is not allowed now... not really a problem, but running a dignostic there will not happen. Compaq diagnostics is not upward in case of problem either. The slowness is erratic, even in the same session.  It can correct itself and return to normal. It seems to happen when I have more than one high screen... like if I can access Yahoo email on one screen and I do appear Facebook on another at the same time.

    Memory is adequate

    Controls for Device Manager shows all my drivers are up to date.

    The new motherboard is an Elitegroup P4M800PRO-M he came with an instellation CD

    The new processor is an Intel Pentium 4.  (He had an AMD Sempron before hand).

    Please be patient with me and use it as simple as possible when replying with advice... I do not understand a lot of technical terms... but I'm learning.

    After hours of slope on this problem... It seems that the culprits were Yahoo toolbar and Adobe Flash 9.  At least it works a lot better now. We'll see if it continues to do so.  Thanks to everyone who took the time to help.  I appreciate it.  Kudos to you all.

    If your Vista came pre-installed, so it's an OEM license - and replace the motherboard except in conditions of warranty is not allowed. Notice of MS, the card mother IS the computer
    You will need to purchase a new FULL version commercial license and edition of Windows you want - from the motherboard is (probably) new, it must run Windows 7 with happiness.

  • According to the set printer wizard, my new printer software has been installed, but the printer will not appear on the section 'printers and faxes '.

    You have a printer again, with installation CD. According to the set printer wizard, my new printer software has been installed, but the printer will not appear on the "printers and faxes" section in Control Panel. Model of printer - Epson XP-200.  Have a Dell, Windows XP.  Help!  Not even sure who to ask...

    What version of XP (Home, Pro, Media Center) and service pack (none, 1, 2, 3)?

    Printers and faxes is totally blank?

    Open a command prompt window (start > run > cmd > OK)
    Type the following in the black command prompt window and press enter
    spooler request SC

    You should see something like this:
    Service_Name: Spooler
    TYPE: 110 WIN32_OWN_PROCESS (interactive)
    STATE: 4 RUNNING

    WIN32_EXIT_CODE: 0 (0X0)
    SERVICE_EXIT_CODE: 0 (0X0)
    CHECKPOINT: 0X0
    WAIT_HINT: 0X0

    What is the 'State' displayed for you?

    Open the Services applet (start > run > services.msc > OK) and scroll down to "print spooler".  The status should be started and the Startup Type should be automatic.  What are the parameters of your correspondents?  If your print spooler is stopped, you can try to launch it by clicking on the link, but I suspect that it stops again.  Please report the results of your efforts.
