"Activated" but still "Not Genuine"
friends this is frankly a Vista question but in Googling the problem it appears possible that both 7 and Vista suffer from the malady. I have a perfectly legit compaq sr2170nx minitower that came OEM'd with Vista Home Basic. My job was to restore it. Did so, and with the original-issue CPQ discs. I used it as a lab mule to try to pull damaged files off a damaged drive and in the midst of a dozen restarts the system went non-Activated. I renewed the Product Key and it is now showing "Activated" but the desktop is still displaying "Non-Genuine" and blacked out.
what's the standard fix? Nothing else in the system has changed - just adding, then removing, a Ultra ATA damaged drive from the IDE bus.
