Windows 7: Windows 7 Suddenly not valid

Windows 7 Suddenly not valid

Hey,

I recently purchased a PCMCIA USB card for my Acer Aspire 6530.

After downloading a few drivers and installing the software, not only does the USB card still not work, but Windows 7 now says its not genuine.

This is really starting to aggravate me as for the last 3 months iv been using USB ports that randomly connect and disconnect, and now after getting this card I may have to reinstall again.

Why is Windows 7 now complaining that its not valid!?

I purchased it off a reputable company and it came with its CoA in an undamaged, sealed box.

Thanks,
Jessee
