Having problems with your PC Laptops ?
When I turned on my laptop it tells me that my Home Vista product key is invalid.
Don't understand why.
I gave you a couple options earlier, don't know if you saw them yet, however, stuck to your computer will be the Genuine Windows XP or Vista lable. You need to input the series of numbers that are on that label to get back into windows then you need to activate it with windows online. That should do it.
This happens if you have a pirated version of windows installed on the machine. If you bought the machine at a store with vista on it call them as they should be able to fix the problem for you. Same with if you got it from the manufacturer or Microsoft. Otherwise you need to buy a legal copy and you will be able to use that product key on your machine to make that message go away.

I had someone put Windows Vista Basic on my laptop about 4 months ago. It worked fine until about 6 weeks ago. One day I started my laptop up, and now everything is gone. The only thing on my computer is a window that says my Vista Basic Home product key is invalid. My desktop, everything is gone. My computer is just black. Except for that Vista window that says I can either use the automated phone system, buy Vista online, or try a different product key. I really need my computer to work again!
