Hello 2aMpAnT.

Have a look at this tutorial; also go to control panel, system and there's an online activation option there.

Activate Vista by Phone - Vista Forums

Hello all.

I just booted into my Vista and it's still activated. I haven't had any trouble with this, with any of the builds. I've probably installed 7 a dozen times in the last two months; always with Vista installed first.

Vista X64 ultimate/ 7 X64 Ultimate (7264)

I've not had a problem with vista being deactivated either.
However due to the fact that i used to re-install quite often i slic'd my bios so i didn't have to go online and then get told to call them everytime i re-installed.
My legit copy is an oem copy that i bought about a year ago and haven't used for about 8 months..

I re-activated Vista X64, then went back to Win 7 and it was ok too.

My windows 7 compac F750US needs drivers for cordless keyboard Logitech YRAJ56A. Most want to sell me driver update packages or whatever. Any clues for a sweet fix?

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 compac, 1 meg, Need drivers for
1.Logitech YRAJ56A Keyboard/mouse
2. HP F2210 All in one

So far this all. It seems that all/most of the 'free' driver downloads are free trials, needing 'bailout' input.

Any suggestions?
