Windows 7 says that my Windows is pirated

Hi,

I just bought new Sony Vaio laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium inside. Now after one week use, window pops up frequently, blaming that my Windows 7 Home Premium is not valid.

My laptop is Sony Vaio NW. Full model number is VGN-NW91FS.
Since I bought this from Japan(and stay here some time ), I should probably contact Sony Japan, but my Japanese is not that good. Unfortunately.

What I should do ?

Anyone else same kind of problems ?

Send comments please,

Thank You, about reply !

When I push "Validate Windows" button, I get answer that my windows is not valid. And I get offer for buying new Windows 7. But I have already valid Windows 7 !?

Did I understand somehow wrong ?

You have contact with Sony support but in your own country.

HAHAAA

I am surprised how this can even happen.

Anyway I am also a bit disappointed because they did in shop explain so much how good Sony Support is. And now it seems really complicated in reality.

That's one option.... I'd go leave a message on HelloPeter though. It's helped me get a couple tricky / suspicious situations sorted out quite quickly and painlessly.
