Cannot Activiate Vista Product Key Number

Posted: 01-05-2009, 11:15 PM
The computer was bought few years ago with pre-installed MS XP OS from
Hewlett-Packard Company and at later date it was upgraded to Vista OS with
Vista upgrade software purchased by me when it was first released.

Few weeks ago, I come upon problems with my home-use computer and I need
your assistance/advice.

Recently, I encountered Vista operating system’s multiple problems,
especially with networking (with another computer and laptop) that prompted
me to re-install the Vista “Upgrade” OS software, hopefully to correct the
problem. At that time, I was unable to “re-install with saved settings” and
the software suggested reinstalling Vista OS “from scratch”. Once I
reinstalled the Vista however, it asked for original previous “full version”
MS XP OS discs which I never had it since these discs did not come with the
computer since it was already pre-installed by Hewlett-Packard Company.
Sadly I never made a backup copy.

Currently the Vista OS is running on “30 days to activiate” period. Several
times I tried to authenticate OS with legally owned Vista and XP Product keys
and it will not accept it and I am frustrated how to resolve this problem.

Please advise me how to resolve this situation and in advance I thank you
for assisting me to resolve this matter.
