Windows 7: Windows suddenly 'Not Genuine' after four years

Windows suddenly 'Not Genuine' after four years

Was faced with this issue after turning on an HP G61 laptop today - it was fine yesterday. The computer was purchased new four years ago from PC World. Nothing has been downloaded or installed in the last couple of months except LastPass (around three weeks ago).
A System Restore to a week ago made no difference. I extracted the Windows product key with SIW (the sticker on the bottom of the laptop has worn away) and re-entered it to no avail. We have the recovery discs that we made when it was new out of the box, but don't want to use them if I don't have to.

Thanks in advance for any help.

BIOS valid for OA 2.0: no, invalid SLIC table

The problem is that your system is unable to properly read the BIOS SLIC table that should be present in the system to be able to self-activate the OS.

You need to change the Product Key to the one on the COA sticker on the machine's case (or inside the battery compartment), using the Change Product Key link at the bottom of the System properties page.


You may need to activate by phone.

Hi Noel
Thanks very much for the quick reply. Unfortunately, the COA sticker has worn away to the point where it is unreadable. Will it still be possible to sort this out with a phone activation?

Your problem is that for some reason, the system is unable to properly read the SLIC table in the BIOS, which is required to be able to self-activate the OEM_SLP Key with which the computer came installed.

The normal solution is to change the Key to the one on your COA sticker - but you say that you are unable to read the Key there.

In such circumstances, the only things you can do are

1) recreate the Licensing Store - in case it's a minor software problem causing the misread
2) try updating the BIOS to the latest available Vista-compliant one, from the manufacturer's website
3) Contact the manufacturer direct, and see if they can provide assistance to correct the SLIC table
4) a reformat and reinstall using the manufacturer's recovery media
5) purchase a new license for Windows (or a new computer)


There *may* be an alternative solution though, if you are patient and persistent.
Attempt Telephone Activation, and speak to an operator - they will tell you that your current Key is blocked (they should then ask for confirmation of your Product Key). Explain to them your problem, that you need to change the Key to the one on your sticker, but that the sticker is unreadable (could they please supply a replacement Key?). Hopefully they will ask for documentary proof of the sticker, in the form of an email with a picture of the affected sticker - and you can proceed from there.
Sometimes it takes two or three calls before you get an operator who actually knows and uses this procedure - but I know that it can and does happen.

Please first try recreating Licensing Store.

Recreate the Licensing Store
Go to Start > All Programs > Accessories
Right-Click on Command Prompt and select Run as Administrator - accept the UAC prompt
Run the following commands in the Command Prompt window, using the Enter key at the end of each

net stop sppsvc
(wait until the service has stopped before entering the following lines)

CD %windir%\ServiceProfiles\NetworkService\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\SoftwareProtectionPlatform
REN tokens.dat tokens.bar
net start sppsvc
slui.exe

After a couple of seconds the Windows Activation dialog will appear.
You may be asked to re-activate and/or re-enter your product key, or Activation may occur automatically.
If you are asked for your Key, use the one on the COA sticker on the machine's case

Reboot and Post back with a new MGADiag report.

(Note: the Line 'CD %win......\SoftwareProtectionPlatform' is all on one line - it may be broken in the Forum listing)

Recreating Licensing Store...

Attempted to recreate licensing store - when I tried to enter the key extracted with SIW (the only thing I've got to try), I got 0xC004F063.

BIOS Update concern

As per your second suggestion, I went to HP's site to see if a BIOS update was available. The sticker with the exact model number is also slightly worn, so I used HP's product finder to be certain.

0 HP products detected. Had a rummage in the loft and found the box - it's a G61-110SA. There is a BIOS update for it, but I am extremely reluctant to try that when HP doesn't recognise it in the first place and currently no serial number in the BIOS.

There must have been at one point because one or more of the drivers were updated using HP's product detect (a long time ago).

I also worry that trying to use the recovery disks to restore an HP OEM installation to what currently appears to be a non-HP computer will result in Bad Things.

I understand your reluctance to install a BIOS update - it's one of the few software operations which could turn your machine into a doorstop!

In that case, I'd proceed to the next stage, and contact HP direct to see if they can help (I doubt it!)

Surprised doesn't even begin to cover it.....

Well, first off Noel, I must thank you very much for all your help. I'm not sure this afternoon's phone call to HP would have been as productive had I not known exactly what the problem was.

I called the main support line and was given another number (unsurprising given the age of the laptop I suppose). The computer on the other end informed me I'd have to pay 15.99 for a technician's help. Better than 79 for a new Windows license I sighed, reaching for my wallet.

When I got through to a person (which was actually very quickly) I was able to explain exactly what was wrong and was amazed to be told:

"This is something we cover regardless of warranty status."

and would I like to be put through to a technician to sort it out?

They told me there was about an hour's wait. Didn't really have time for that tonight, but they are open from 10 - 4 on Saturday so I'll call back then.

Thanks once again - I'll let you know the result of Saturday's call.
