Based on your report, you seemed to have changed the motherboard.

The OEM of Windows 7 versions are identical to the versions commercial full license with the following exception:

-OEM versions don't offer any free direct support from Microsoft technical support Microsoft

-OEM Licenses are tied to the computer first you install and activate it on

-OEM versions allow all hardware upgrades except for an upgrade to a different model motherboard

-OEM versions does not move directly from an older Windows operating system

You can try the phone activation, there is no guarantee:

  • Using the HARD drive of a Tecra A4 as a for another laptop external HARD drive.

    I have a Toshiba Tecra A4. I want to use the HARD drive as a second hard drive to another laptop, but it seemed to me that the HDD in Tecra A4 has a special bond that does not fit in a standard externel HDD-Bay. Anyone know how I can use the HARD Tecra A4 drive as an external HARD drive?

    Subquestion: is it not possible to use a 2.5 "HARD drive normal in a Toshiba Tecra A4?


    AFAIK Tecra A4 has 2.5 inch HDD inside. But the HARD drive has another connector HARD drive that you can remove. The HARD drive is placed in the HARD drive chassis and fixed with four screws. Remove the screw and the connector. Be very carefully and take it easy.

    After that you can use in other laptops.

    There is no Vista free download legal available.


    Contact your computer manufacturer and ask them to send a recovery disk/s Vista set.

    Normally, they do this for a cost of $ small.


    Or borrow a good Microsoft Vista DVD (not Dell, HP, etc).
    A good Vista DVD contains all versions of Vista.
    The product key determines which version of Vista is installed.

    There are 2 disks of Vista: one for 32-bit operating system, and one for 64-bit operating system.

    If install a cleaning is required with a good DVD of Vista (not HP, Dell recovery disks):

    Go to your Bios/Setup, or the Boot Menu at startup and change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order, then reboot with the disk in the drive.

    At the startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, go to Setup/Bios or F12 for the Boot Menu

    Hi Jer9009,

    Welcome to the Microsoft answers site.

    ·         Could you give the exact error code or error number you get?

    To connect multiple computers, install a network adapter in each and run a network CAT5 cabling to connect each one to a hub (and thus the other.) The computer that will serve as a transition will have a standard network card for wired and a wireless network adapter that will connect to the wireless (WAP) access point or gateway on the second network.

    A network bridge is software or hardware that connects two networks or more so that they can communicate. You can create only a single bridge network on a computer, but a bridge can handle any number of network connections.

    For more information, see the link: create a network bridge:http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Create-a-network-bridge

  • I have problems wireless on my Acer laptop which has Windows Vista. I am able to connect to my school of university network and used to connect to my home network.

    original title: Wireless on the Fritz

    I have problems wireless on my Acer laptop which has Windows Vista.  I am able to connect to my school of university network and used to connect to my home network (both are networks limited requiring a password or log in).  However, last week my computer stopped connecting to my home network (no one else has this problem with the home network).  I tried to fix the problem, but my computer says that "Wireless association failed because Windows did not receive response from the access point or wireless router."  That said also thatthe connection "(my wireless network)" has been cancelled.  This is perhaps due to a timeout or user action. »

    The only different thing I did last week was click option at my University 'connect long-term' instead of 'connect short term' to their wireless network.  Maybe who has messed up my settings?  That's what my University said of his record long term: "students, faculty and staff also have an option to easily record their computer (or other wireless devices), so that it is not necessary to authenticate each day they connect from the network wireless campus, to resources outside the University.»  However, these settings are saved on their network (I can access it online from another computer), so I think it is unlikely that he messed up my settings.

    I don't really know what the problem is.  Any ideas as to what I can do?  I don't want to reset my computer everything.

    Thank you!


    You can view these methods:

    Method 1:

    I suggest you to disable any program of security on your computer and check if it solves the problem.

    After reviewing the question you must reactivate the security on your computer program.
    Note: Run the computer without antivirus software or firewall is a potential threat to the computer; Be sure to activate security software after completing the troubleshooting steps and after identifying the problem.
    Method 2:
    I suggest also allows you to check in SafeMode with network.
    Method 3:
    I also suggest you to check the settings of the router firewall.
  • I can't activate my real Vista on 'New' material by using the hard drive of my old hardware

    OK, I got a laptop comes pre-loaded with windows Vista and it has got water damage and shorted, the hard drive however is in good working condition. I bought a laptop replacement because I didn't want to be on another computer that someone else would break anyway.

    so I bought this used the laptop from a friend that he would use to intnet and games, she had similar specs as my old laptop except the proccessor was different but similar speed and what not. what I want to do is to install the hard drive from my old with Vista genuine in this 'new' computer that has a hard drive in a way smaller and is loaded with XP.

    compatible sound and I have already, but it asks me for my product key that I have but it says its wrong (I guess as its headquarters in the old hardware) so is there a way to unregister the old hardware or upgrade my hardware information in order to use my old hard drive and keep my status as a true?

    not only is a HDD larger but its quicker and there all my files ive been without for more than a year now and frankly I need it back so bad at this point

    Thank you thank you

    Sorry, but versions OEM of Windows Vista cannot be transferred to another computer.  The license is permanently tied to the original computer, it has been installed and activated on. Carey Frisch

  • T410 - using the Hard Drive Bay adapter III series

    I have looked in getting more storage data on my t410 and had a few questions about the adaptation of the dvd to the HARD disk to use. (1) the t410 certainly does support the adapter? (2) will the adapter supports all 9.5 mm HDD 2.5 "? can I use a 7200 RPM drive? (3) this configuration supports protection against shock, as the HARD disk drive Bay original? (4) is there anything else I should consider? THX in advance

    ended up finding the Hitachi Travelstar 2.5 750 GB 7200 RPM SATA II 16 MB Cache internal hard - 0S 03339 and Thinkpad Sata HD Bay adapter 3, both from Amazon. the model # on the Amazon unit is the same as the one on the Lenovo site, but was $30 cheaper. Ran $89,99, vs. $61,17 for the 500 GB Hitachi 750 GB... I hope it works like the 500 GB
