Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

I have a Sony Vaio Laptop PCG-7151 with Vista Business. I can bring up my desktop. I called Dell because they were the manufactorer but they said that they didn't make Sony. I cannot get any programs to come up.It said that the prouct key was not right for the Vista program. I tried putting in Windows XP with the product key for that program and it said the same thing. The error C;WindowsSystem32mapisvc.inf came up for Windows Vista and Windows XP.

I just bought a Sony Vaio at best buy and the ''geek squad'' wanted $40 to ''activate'' the second processor that supposedly doens't come active, they also were bragging that they would optimize the system but I just thought it sounded like a gimmick.
