Need help with Windows 7 key.

I have a laptop that I had to change the HARD drive due to a complete failure.  I had a Windows 7 key I know has been good and have never used, purchased as part of a package of pc 3.   Now the installation tells me that this is not a valid key.  I paid almost $150.00 for this set of 3 installs for Windows 7, about 5 years ago.

The old HDD is dead, I tried to connect with a USB key and nothing.   The laptop was working fine with WIndows 10, then the portable HARD drive is simply dead.  I need help with a new key, or at least the one I have to work.  The new drive HARD won't have not all partitions or any attached former windows key.  I can't get past the check of Windows screen.

Need help please.

You must use the product key located on the COA sticker (at the bottom of the laptop, sometimes inside the battery cover or access. Once you have located the product key, and then follow the instructions below to change the key of the key from the factory to the key on the sticker.

    Follow these steps to try to solve your problems of boot.

     

     

    Restore point:

    Try typing F8 at startup and in the list of Boot selections, select Mode safe using ARROW top to go there > and then press ENTER.

    Try a restore of the system once, to choose a Restore Point prior to your problem...

    Click Start > programs > Accessories > system tools > system restore > choose another time > next > etc.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

     

    If restore work not and you do not have a Vista DVD from Microsoft, do a repair disc to do a Startup Repair:

    Download the ISO on the link provided and make a record of repair time it starts.

    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.

    When you have changed that, insert the Bootable disk you did in the drive and reboot.

    http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/tutorial148.html

    Link above shows what the process looks like and a manual, it load the repair options.

    NeoSmart containing the content of the Windows Vista DVD 'Recovery Centre', as we refer to him. It cannot be used to install or reinstall Windows Vista, and is just a Windows PE interface to recovering your PC. Technically, we could re-create this installation with downloadable media media freely from Microsoft (namely the Microsoft WAIK, several gigabyte download); but it is pretty darn decent of Microsoft to present Windows users who might not be able to create such a thing on their own.

    Read all the info on the website on how to create and use:

    http://NeoSmart.net/blog/2008/Windows-Vista-recovery-disc-download/

    ISO Burner:http://www.snapfiles.com/get/active-isoburner.html

    It's a very good Vista startup repair disk.

    You can do a system restart tool, system, etc it restore.

    It is NOT a disc of resettlement.

    And the 32-bit is what normally comes on a computer, unless 64-bit.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Data recovery:

    1. slave of your hard drive in another computer and read/save your data out there.

    2. put your Hard drive in a USB hard drive case, plug it into another computer and read/save from there.

    3 Alternatively, use Knoppix Live CD to recover data:

    http://www.Knopper.NET/Knoppix/index-en.html

    Download/save the file Knoppix Live CD ISO above.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    http://isorecorder.alexfeinman.com/isorecorder.htm

    Download the Vista software from the link above.

    After installing above ISO burning software, right click on the Knoppix ISO file > copy the Image to a CD.

    Knoppix is not installed on your PC; use only the resources of your PC, RAM, graphics etc.

    Change the boot order in YOUR computer/laptop to the CD/DVD Drive 1st in the boot order.

    Plug a Flash Drive/Memory Stick, BOOT with the Live CD, and you should be able to read the hard drive.

    When the desktop loads, you will see at least two drive hard icons on the desktop (one for your hard drive) and one for the USB key.

    Click on the icons of hard drive to open and to understand which drive is which.

    Click the icon for the USB drive and click on "Actions > Change the read/write mode" so you can write to disk (it is read-only by default for security reasons).

    Now to find the files you want to back up, just drag and drop them on the USB. When you're done, shut down the system and remove the USB key.

    See you soon.

    Hello

    Question: Error code 10 on Teredo Tunneling pseudo-interface.

    Teredo is a tunneling protocol designed independent platform to provide IPv6 (Internet Protocol version 6) connectivity to nodes that are in IPv4 networks. Compared to other similar protocols its particularity is that it is able to fulfil its function even behind network address translation (NAT) devices.

    The Code 10 error code is generated when the Device Manager does not enough information or error that spread upwards by device drivers is not recognized by Device Manager. In addition, this error may occur if one of the pilots who needs the unit does not start. If multiple drivers are used by a particular device, it can be difficult to determine which failed.

  • Need help with Windows Live Mail password

    Microsoft support told me that the only way to get help with my last password is by e-mail or forums and I recorded many positions and got no response.  I gave them all of my personal info to my email account and no response. I called in and no response.  Should I give up on this account?  I got it for more than three years and many court and legal emails were sent there I need.  Please notify.

    I guess that you have a Live account Windows that you do not manage to connect to for various reasons.  Can clarify you what the case, and you can specify that you forgot your password or your user name?

    If you talk about this type of Forums (below) then they are very busy, but eventually you should get a response from Microsoft.  If the problem is that I'm guessing that this is so only Microsoft can fix the problem for you, posters not Microsoft, as we find in this Forum won't be able to do much for you other than to advice on a course of action to follow.

    If I remember the way Microsoft handle such problems with the "lockout", it's that they contact you by E-mail (an address that you can still access) and either reset your password or clear the problem after having proved to their satisfaction that you are the owner of the blocked account.  The process is a lot easier if you have (in the setup) provided them with another email address, or installed (and remember) secret an answer to the Question.

    Unfortunately, the whole process may fail and you may forever lose this account.  If that were the case, you should start now to try to get duplicates of important emails from the original sender.

  • Need help with Windows Live Movie Maker and DVD Maker

I've lost countless blank DVDs not to mention hours and hours of time... and I'm so frustrated...

    ===============================================
    First of all a question... did you you save the project in a video such as format
    . WMV or. MP4? Or have you just of WLMP project folder?

    I suspect that DVD Maker is to see your movie in one file
    and he has no idea where are your scenes. More than likely it is
    creation of scenes on his own in arbitrary places.

    In order for DVD Maker correctly, identify individual scenes
    each stage must be registered as an individual video clip, then
    the collection of video clips can be imported and each of them must
    become an individual scene.  DVD Maker is supposed to accept
    up to 18 scenes.

    Just an experience you can import your new original
    video clips in DVD Maker and see if it works properly. If
    It does what you want... change and re-record your clips one video
    both will be the fix.

    Good luck...

    Hey, I recently bought a HP Pavilion g6-2300sy with Windows preinstalled 8 and decided to install Windows 7 on it instead, as I'm rates more familiar with it. Now I seem to be running into issues with the Radeon HD 7670 m laptop graphics card, since I can't find a driver that works for her.

    How can I fix without going back to Windows 8? Any help would be really appreciated.

  • Need help with simple flash keys

    So I need help either direct tutorial or someone to point me in the direction of something useful.

    What I'm trying to do, is create 3 clickable flash buttons which all have a link to a small box. I want these buttons to make the text appear in the box when clicked. I want the box to be a Virgin until a button is clicked.

    ___     ___     ___
    |__|     |__|     |___|

    Thank you very much in advance.

    Strike what I said about the code being fine.  It is not (my eyes just woke up).  This is a correct coding for the way you had it.  To have the button share the same function of handler you need another approach that tests for which the button is clicked.  Instead of this approach, below I show each button has its own manager function...

    Stop();
    BTN1.addEventListener (MouseEvent.Click, mouseClick1);
    function mouseClick1(event:MouseEvent):void
    {
    gotoAndStop (2);
