    Windows7 ultimate 64bit activation issue after motherboard replacement


    I had a genuine Windows Ultimate 64 bit windows activation key which was working fine with my hp pavilion dv4 laptop but after replacement of motherboard the BIOS showing compaq CQ41 laptop and suddenly the activation key is not working anymore showing that, there is a hardware change and you have to enter a fresh activation id.

    Hence requesting to provide me a genuine Windows 7 Ultimate permanent activation key(64bit) so that i can activate activate the window again like before.

    what is the exact model of and full model number of the new motherboard ?

    check with rweverything to see if you have slic table in the firmware .

    or you can call microsoft toll free and if they ask tell them your motherboard died and you have replaced it.

    you can find the phone number by typing slui 4 in start search box.

    please check the battery department for a backup key... is it for Ultimate

    notes
    if the new motherboard was not Ultimate then thats why your getting the message
    you will have to install a lower version of W7
    also unlikely that the original comp came with Ultimate.....

    post the Mgadiag results from here

    NO-ONE is going to give you an Ultimate key

    @SIW2
    Thanks for the reply
    1. I contacted microsoft they called me and asked me to run slui 4 but unfortunately no telephone number is showing only they are asking
    A. Buy a new product key
    B. Type a new activation key

    Hence they couldn't help me as the support for windows 7 has been not any more.

    2. The motherboard is perfectly ok everything is showing same in BIOS except
    The model number of laptop showing different instead of hp pavilion dv4 it's showing compaq cq 41., That's why windows activation asking for a new key as it can't recognise the laptop model

    3. A new activation retail key for windows 7 ultimate 64 bit will serve the purpose. So please provide the same to me.
