RESTORED FOR LAPTOP, WINDOWS VISTA INVAILD

Hi I'm new to these fornums

I restored my laptop Toshiba because I had some problems with it and now my Windows Vista computer is indicating that it is 'invaild...

I have the product key on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop, but whenever I entered the code, I also get this:

The product key you entered will not work with this edition of Vista

I know that most people are trying to say to activate by phone, but this option is not available

Help, please

Now that you have found the key and the certificate of authenticity, you must change to the key on the COA sticker - ONLY then it will activate.

    I've used Mr.Fixit he STATES it is FIXED THE ISSUES BUT IS A LIAR! I tried other methods of support on the side of right, including individually install each .dll (I have screenshots of everything), I even spent $99.00 for ReImage software and went thru 2 months of their tech support pros, they stated that it was a known issue with Windows. I even spent a total of 37 hours with different hr 2 X 6 level 2 technicians remote sessions; only to have them tell me ultimately as well "they are not really important anyway!", they had to issue refund but I can't do it again. I am now on fixed-income securities this computer tent 3 - 4 times a day to install these updates of freakin. I do not have CD w this partition only separate from PC. If you cannot solve the problem I think you should send me Win 7 upgrade I'm not a total novice but really this DIFFICULTY be paranoid as soon as things go beyond registry IF someone CAN Please HELP!

    IMHO, you should at least run the McAfee removal tool before you install BitDefender again. That being said...

  • Hello! Had some problems with my CC desktop window

    When I try to open it, from the top on my Mac (OS X El Capitan 10.11.2) bar, just opened a white empty window.

    Re-boot the computer has no effect on the problem.

    I also tried to change the name of the file opm.db to opm_old.db in the OOBE folder. But I guess it didn't work because I can't close the application before you rename it.

    So, how to solve this problem?

    The answers, with the human language and example step by step, would be very appreciated

  • My HP laptop has had a problem with the uncontrollable from scrolling upward and to the left.

    Hoping someone can help me with this - for a month or if my computer hp laptop has had a problem with uncontrollable scroll upward and to the left. It is now getting worse and happens in all programs, including Word, Adobe, browsers, etc.. Even to type this message is difficult because the cursor periodically jumps to the top left corner of the text box. I tried to attach a new external mouse, but this is not enough. The problem occurs even when not to use the touchpad. I scanned my computer with several anti-virusprograms but no luck. It becomes difficult to use the computer for something else. Even now the down arrows / right does not help. PLEASE ADVISE!

     
     
    Original title: scrolling problem

    Hi Suresh,

    This is a late response to your question, but I thought that I could add more information here.

    From your description, it seems that your PageUp and the keys to the House (or arrows) of the keyboard are either stuck, or failing. These keys usually help access us in applications you mentioned. And since you mentioned that this happens even when the touchpad is not in use, it is likely that this could be the cause here.

    I suggest get you the checked keyboard when using a hardware technician, preferably from your computer manufacturer. That should help you understand better.

    Let us know if you need help with Windows, we are happy to be of assistance.

  • I have two Acer ASpire laptops. They are totally frozen because of the virus. I lost the recovery of Windows Vista Ultimate Edition disc, where to get a replacement. I have to rebuild my laptop.

    I have two Acer Aspire laptops.  They are totally frozen because of the virus.
    I lost the recovery of Windows Vista Ultimate Edition disc, where to get a replacement.
    I have to rebuild my laptop.

    Hello

    No - what are the two Acers come with a recovery disk?

    If this is not the case, one of them would have a recovery partion, which specifically is to reinstall the operating system on it.

    With an Acer, you press Alt + F10 at startup to start the recovery process.

    All data are lost when you do the above.

    And for the lost disc, contact Acer and ask them to send you recovery disks.

    They do that for a small fee:

    http://us-store.Acer.com/RCD/

    Some manufacturers have more available Vista recovery disks.

    If this happens, you may need to try this instead:

    You can also borrow and use a Microsoft Vista DVD, which contains the files for the different editions of Vista (Home Basic, Home Premium, Business and Ultimate) must be installed. The product key on your computer / Laptop box determines what Edition is installed.

    Other manufacturers recovery DVDs are should not be used for this purpose.

    And you need to know the version of 'bit' for Vista, as 32-bit and 64-bit editions come on different DVDs

    Here's how to do a clean install of Vista using a DVD of Vista from Microsoft:

    "How to do a clean install and configure with a full Version of Vista '

    http://www.Vistax64.com/tutorials/117366-clean-install-full-version-Vista.html

    And phone Activation may be necessary when you use the above installation method.

  • I was called by someone who said that I had a problem with my computer

    Its a total scam. Uninstall their software and then perform a system restore before you install.
    Change all your sensitive passwords at all sites - e-mail, Bank, credit cards and others. (Do not
    on the computer compromise and it would be better to do it on the phone or in person.)

    You can even restore your system to factory fresh to make sure their software violates not
    your security. (Ways to re - install Windows Clean - removing everything on the backup drive so all the data
    before hand.)

    No, Microsoft wouldn't you not solicited. Or they would know if errors exist on your

  • I can't play DVDs in Windows Media Player 12 on Windows 7 Pro and get this error msg: Windows Media Player cannot play this DVD because there is a problem with the digital copy between your DVD drive decoder and video card protection.

    Hello, thanks for reading and helping me.

    I try to play a legitimate, belonging to DVD, but Windows Media Player 12 will not play on my computer Windows 7 Professional.  The DVD worked a few days ago, but all of a sudden, I get the following error message:

    "Windows Media Player cannot play this DVD because there is a problem with the digital copy between your DVD player and the video card protection decoder. Try to install a driver available for your video card.

    I did a lot of research of these forums and on the ' net.  Here are the suggested steps I tried without success:

    • I tried VLC player.  This works.  However, rather than use this workaround, I wish to find a solution to my problem WMP/WMC.
    • I tried several DVD for years over the last decade.  These DVD works on my laptop, also running Windows 7 Professional and the shark 007 codec.
    • I uninstalled my Shark 007 codec
    • I tried other codecs (K-Lite)
    • I assured that the latest drivers are installed on my video card, XFX ATI Radeon 5850
    • I tried to uninstall Nero 9
    • I tried to use the Windows 7 troubleshooting options:
    • > Reading and burning CD, DVD and Blu - ray (no problem)
    • > Windows Media Player DVD (no problem)
    • > Windows Media Player Settings (detects a problem, wants to restore factory settings, every time, no matter what happens)
    • A system restore to a time when the DVD was working did not resolve the issue
    • The different links in Microsoft, I found in this forum about this problem do not seem to be useful.  There is a link that points to the set-top boxes, but this page just says: "Windows 7 comes with a decoder.
    • I assured the latest driver is available by going to "Device Manager", right click on the drive, then click on "update driver software".
    • I assured that the latest firmware is installed directly from the manufacturer's website.
    • I tried to reset my DRM by renaming the DRM under C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows folder and by going to this Web site to upgrade:http://drmlicense.one.microsoft.com/Indivsite/en/indivit.asp?force=1
    • I've uninstalled and reinstalled Windows Media Player 12 and Windows Media Center via the function "functionality in Windows.

    I would be very grateful if a Microsoft technology could chime.  Thanks for your help!
