Reinstalled windows and can not activate

I have laptop model z500. I have just reinstalled windows using a flash drive. But I have a pro version and I need to activate it using my Windows OEM license. How can I do this? Thank you

IMHO, you can install and activate the operating system by using the embedded product key if it's the same version only.

  • Reinstalled Windows and can not get the video past standard vga

    I had to reformat my hard drive on my Studio 1749 and reinstall it from the disk operating system (which seems to have only the standard drivers on that).  Then, I went to the page of Support for drivers and installed the wireless lan driver and video driver.  But when I try to adjust the screen resolution, the only option for display is generic pnp monitor on standard vga adapter.  How can I get that back at the higher resolution and it supports?

    Thank you


    First thing to do is determine whether you have an Intel or ATI video (BIOS - F2 at startup screen - will tell you).

    Make sure that you have installed the Dell system software

    Then install the video driver.

  • Windows 7 says this isn't authentic after changing the HARD drive and can not activate

    After a Windows Update I received a notice that my version of windows was not authentic, which is false because I had windows on my laptop because I got it 4 years ago. Recently, I had to have the changed HARD drive as it corrupts. Installed new HARD drive and partition it a space in which the old files to hard drives.

My Microsoft certificate key is passed out to illegible but I don't have the product key for the OEM version. Any help would be great, thanks.

    If Windows was preinstalled on your computer, you can enable using the code from the sticker on the computer.  If you can not read the sticker more, you will need to contact the computer company he built.

    If you purchased Windows from the store, you can enable using the code of the case/box/CD.  If you can't read it, you must contact the retailer who sells to you.

    Make a check of malware with several malware scanning of programs on the Windows computer.

    Please scan with all programs, because each program detects a different malicious program.

    All of these programs have free versions.

    Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of their databases before scanning.

    Alternatively, you can write a check for an infection rootkit TDSSKiller.

  • Purchsed XI of Acrobat pro upgrade and can not activate

    Recently I bought Acrobat Pro XI for work and I read that the requirement was to have Acrobat Standard XI. I looked at my current Adobe PDF software and he said it was the XI. Not until I tried to activate the Pro version I noticed I had Adobe Reader XI not Acrobat.

    How can I activate my purchase $200? And if not, can I get a refund?

    Thank you


    You have an Acrobat file in your folder program files? You can also go to the control panel > programs &... to check for installed Acrobat. I don't know what requirement you are talking about - company or other? Generally, I would still spend the extra for the Pro and not STDS. For a few people Std will be sufficient, but most people seem to finally find something that needs Pro and they are unable to do.

    So, how do you have Acrobat - download or CD? She obtained from a dealer of play or on the website of Adobe? If it's a download, be sure to back up to another medium, generally CD or possibly a backup hard drive for future use. Was this the full version or version upgrade (probably the last for $200)? If an upgrade, you must have installed the earlier version or have available serial number during installation (so don't get rid of the previous CD and SN version is where you need it in the future).

    I guess you made the installation process. You must be logged in as an administrator and have disabled when installing anti-virus. During the upgrade you will be asked if you want to leave the previous version, remove it or enter the SN for the previous version (AA9 or more currently). Then, you will get to a point to enter the SN for the current product, I think. When you start Acrobat for the first time, you should get an activation request (and need to be connected to the Internet). This process is expected to complete the process. Strict activation looks a bit fuzzy for me since I usually run versions of business that do not use the activation process, but Adobe charges a fee for each copy installed of the institution.

    It should be under C:\Windows\system32, but is sometimes found in C:\Windows, and when this happens, you might get an error when calling the aero theme. The solution is to move to the system32 folder or delete it.

    Also, you may have a corrupted file. Open a command prompt (click Start, type CMD and right click on the menu entry that appears, choose "Run as Administrator", click on continue in the UAC prompt). From the command line run:
