  2. Unplug the computer from the wall or surge protector (then remove the battery if it is a laptop).
  3. "Remove the computer from any port replicator or docking station, disconnect
    cables to printers or devices such as external monitors, USB memory sticks or SD cards, headset or external speakers, mouse or auxiliary keyboard, turn off WIFI and Bluetooth wireless devices." (Use Hard Reset to Resolve Hardware and Software Issues HP Pavilion dv5000 Notebook PC series - HP Customer Care (United States - English))
  4. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds. This closes the circuit and ensures all
    power from components is drained to clear the software connections between the BIOS
    and hardware and clear any corruption in the temporary memory.
  5. (If it is a laptop, plug the battery back into the laptop and then) Plug the computer back into the wall. Do not reconnect any unnecessary peripherals; monitor, keyboard,
    and mouse should suffice and be the only peripherals reconnected.
  6. Turn it on to reinitialize the software connections between the BIOS and hardware
OK I did all of that. Should I do something now that the computer is back on??

Just check whether the 0's are still there. I am nearly 100% sure that process will not resolve the problem. It was just a thought that occurred to me that can sometimes help with BIOS related issues.

Neither Retail nor OEM System Builder licenses take ANY notice of the BIOS tables at all.

Yep, the Key on the Microsoft sticker on the bottom of the case (on some machines it can be in the battery compartment - but that's a recent innovation for most companies.)
Actually, activation is still required. It just doesn't ask for a key, that's all. We have many HP computers on our stand-alone, non-internet network at work, and I have to call the 800 number in order to activate them.
Keg
At no time have I ever said that activation wasn't required - it is required *without exception* in all installations of Windows (and Office) since XP was launched (technically, since the launch of Office 2000, which was the first product to require activation)

The Key on the COA sticker will always ask for activation when first installed (often that first activation will have to be by telephone).

A pre-installed OEM_SLP Key in contrast should never ask for activation, as the system is designed to activate it on every boot. If it does ask for activation, then there is something amiss - either the BIOS SLIC table is broken, the certificates in teh OS are missing, there is a software problem of some kind, or the Key is on the wrong machine.

The time is irrelevant it this point - the important line is the one at the bottom.
'Factory Installed OS - non-Vista' which means that the SLIC table is removed
(It's the first time I've ever seen that screen!)

The most common 'sensible' explanation is installing a custom BIOS for some reason - other than that, we're left with the elementts of chance and malware.

Nah- it was 2a.m. when I went to bed, though.

Accent? - it's you foreigners that have accents!
