I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.
I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.
You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

not able to find windows product key
hardik2 Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!I read your post and wanted to help -- but need more information. Need to know the version of OS as the key is stored differently depending on the OS version (i.e, Win7,8x,10). Also, WHY do you need the product key? If you're trying to reinstall the OS, we need to know that as that presents problems you will need to address.We can proceed once you provide the information.Thankshttp://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Operating-System-and-Recovery/how-to-find-windows-product-key-in-hp-pavillion-15-au003tx/td-p/5835368

General speaking, you cannot upgrade the video card or GPU in a laptop.
I have a HP pavillion Notebook (DV9700 with Vista) that is suppose to have a built in camera. However I can not access this camera. Is there someway or something I have to do before trying to access the camera?

Any successes on hp pavillion notebook? the dv2623tu in particular
You might find the answer you're looking for in
Can I install windows7 to my HP/Compaq CQ40-323AX?
depends on the hardware spec of your system.
Hello, I was just wondering if it would be possible for me to upgrade my RAM, it currently is at 8GB, I would like to upgrade it to 16GB or whatever the max is. Thanks!
Hi Yes your notebook should support upto 16 GB I found the link for manuals http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c04655126 Page 1/2: memory infoPage 41: how to replacehttp://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/Can-I-upgrade-the-RAM-of-my-HP-Pavillion-Notebook/td-p/5697390
Hi I want to instal one SSD disk on my computer. Do anyone now if it is Sata 3 port on this computer ? If it isn`t can I install Sata 3 port or do I have to chang motheboard ! Regards KOB32
Hi: Run this free hardware analyzer that I have zipped up and attached below. Run the file, close the summary window and on the left side of the window, click to expand the Drives section. Then click to expand the sata/atapi drives section. Click on your hard drive name listed there. The first line will be the Drive Controller spec. It will report the hard drive type running at a certain speed. For example Serial ATA 6 Gb/s @ 6 Gb/s. If your notebook only has a SATA II port, it might report Serial ATA 6 Gb/s @ 3 Gb/s, or Serial ATA 3 Gb/s @ 3 Gb/s.

[/B]I have had the notebook for five years; yesterday the following message:
NTLDR is missing
Press ctrl + alt + del to restart
When the user does the instruction, the boot starts and the message repeats.
I really do not want to do a reinstall of the operating system; if someone has away to reinstall just the boot tracks.
 Is this a virues?
 Is this the work of a hacker?
 Has there been an MS-XP failure?

Check this site out. How to fix: NTLDR is missing, press any key to restart Its long but should fix your problem.

Hello. I have a HP Pavillion 15 Notebook PC product number: J1X37EA#AB9 with Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4510U CPU @ 2.00GHz 2.60GHz, RAM: 12,0 GB, Windows 10 64-bits and in what comes to graphics i have Intel(R) HD Graphics 4400 and a NVidia GeForce 840M. I believe my intel graphic card is integrated in the board but the Nvidia one can be upgraded. Am I wrong or can I really upgrade my graphics card?

Hello,I was recently given a pavillion dv9821ea laptop which was in bad shape after being infected with a virus. I eventually had to replace the hard drive and at the same time I upgraded the operating system to windows 7 PRO 64bit. I was unable to save nothing from the origonal hard drive, no drivers, HP software etc and since I installed Windows 7, the laptop seems to have several problems including not downloading Windows updates. I connect it to the HP assistant, but this recognises the laptop and only gives me the choice of Windows Vista as the operating system for which to support drivers etc. I wonder if you could help me by letting me know if there is anywhere I can download Windows 7 pro 64bit drivers for this laptop? my wife and I are both disabled and it would make a great difference to me if I could have full use of this laptop. Regards. Gerald
Hi, Gerald: HP did not support that model for W7, and you should be able to use the Vista drivers from the dv9821ea support page except the BIOS and firmware files. Additionally, you can read this helpful dv9000 W7 upgrade guide for some tips on getting W7 to work just fine on that model. http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Operating-System-and-Recovery/Windows-7-Upgrade-Guide-for-dv60...http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/Drivers-for-Pavillion-dv9821ea-entertainment-notebook/td-p/5594190

Hello katrapezo. I understand you're having some trouble recording audio. Have you tried recording in another application such as Sound Recorder? I'd also like you to remove your audio drivers and allow Windows to reinstall them. Here are the steps.Click Start, type "Device Manager," and press Enter.Expand the "Sound, video, and game controllers" section.Right click on your sound card and select "Uninstall."Reboot your computer.Verify whether the problem persists.Also, what is your notebook's product number? This document can show you where it is located.Have a wonderful day.http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Audio/HP-Pavillion-dv6-notebook-audio-recording-issue-windows-7/td-p/2737617

Sounds like it might be time for a reinstall to refresh the OS and overcome any lingering infection. Follow these same steps for Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 particularly when it comes to drivers and Updates.
Otherwise work through these Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 including the hardware tests.
hp pavillion laptop 15-p067ca model, purchased year ago, came with windows 8.1, was not updated to windows 10. seems to have a bug: on start up it welcomes me as a user "vladimir" asks for password and then hangs up forever with the white screen and unresponsive. Password I'm sure is right, because if I type different password, machine comes back with "Incorrect password" message. What do you think is a problem and how to go back to factory settings? I have not made a recovery disc. Any comp supposedly have a recovery partition, and Recovery Manager but how can I do anything if Window does not come up?

If you have (and should have) a USB keyboard and mouse connect them and see if they will work.
Since your file system was already corrupted you cloned the bad files to the new drive.
If the USB devices work you should do a Repair Install.
If that doesn't work do this: Using System Recovery, Factory Reset and Minimized Image Recovery Options HP Pavilion dv6-3225dx Entertainment Notebook PC | HP? Support
From this tut:
Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7
On newer models HP Recovery may offer a Minimized OS Recovery option when booting from F11, which retains only the OS, Recovery Manager, HP Support Asst, and HP Wireless LAN. This is as close to a clean reinstall as you can get without doing one yourself.
● If you clean reinstall only to C and leave all other partitions intact, F11 Recovery key should still work later if you need it.
● You can also Extract HP 3rd Party Software from RecovCD.
● Problems with volume control lighting and HP Quick Launch buttons have been dealt with here where you can also get further support.
Several weeks ago I bought the new HP Pavillion dv9574ea notebook and the HEADPHONE SOCKETS do not work - there are two. Only the speakers work. Even when I put a working set of headphones which are the right size, I cannot hear anything through the hearphones. The normal loud speakers however keep working, although they should switch off when the headphones are plugged in.
Please see the screenshot of the drivers active (in system 32 folder) and other details about the headphone socket.
Thank you for any help.

I am Reinstalling Windows 8.1, But Cannot Find The Product Key For My HP 15 Notebook PC. Does Anyone Know We're It Is Located.
Hi: The windows product key is encrypted in the BIOS. Microsoft put an end to product key stickers starting with all PC's that come with Windows 8. The product key will automatically populate the area where you enter the key as you install W8.1. Note: You have to use the HP recovery disks, recovery disk set you made when you first got the PC, or a W8.1 OEM installation disk. If you plan on trying to use the W8.1 media you can download from Microsoft, there is a trick to get that to work. http://www.eightforums.com/installation-setup/38486-need-help-formatted-genuine-windows-8-lenovo.htm...http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Operating-System-and-Recovery/We-re-do-I-find-windows-8-1-product-key-on-HP-15-notebook-pc/td-p/5850292

Sorry, keys are version specific -- the Professional key will not work with a Home Premium version.
There's not really a lot you can do with the drive being bad on the laptop. IF it were working, there are apps you can run to display the current product key, which can then be saved to a file. But, with a nonworking drive, unless the product key is printed somewhere else (inside the battery compartment, for example), those apps are of no use.
You might be able to get restore media from HP (for a LOT less than buying it retail), but you would need to check with them to see if it would automatically activate. Tell them the hard drive has crashed and you want to restore the machine to working order -- they might give you a deal on restore media.

Windows Product ID: 00426-OEM-8992662-00006
Thats an Acer OEM. You cannot install it on a Lenova.
I am making a recovery disk for my dell latitude E6440 laptop and began the process to make a Windows 7 professional DVD. However, the Product Key I found on the computer only has 20 characters and on the Windows download site I received an error,
saying I needed 25 characters.
Not sure where I go from here. Dell said the Windows 7 professional Product ID was correct.
I recently purchased a Precision M6800 (probably one of the last ) and now want to add an external slice-type battery. I did some searches on DELL web sites (my local Belgium one and some international ones) and on the www. This resulted in several product codes for what seem to be the same, or at least similar products: 451-11831 / 451-BBGJ / 312-1351. Can anyone tell me if those are all the same, or at least compatible products ? And more importantly: is any of those (or all 3) really the slice-type battery I am looking for to attach to the docking connector of my M6800 ?

So short story, I work at a college tech site that fixes student and faculty computers. A foreign exchange student from Japan with a Sony Vaio (most likely from Japan as well) managed to get a virus on his computer and he was blocked off our network. Our policy is that we wipe and reinstall the OS to ensure that the virus is gone. However, we didn't have any Windows 7 Home Prem media CDs so I downloaded a Win7 Home Prem 32bit iso off of MSDN and burnt it to disk. However, when entering the product key given on the bottom of the laptop(and I've checked 3 times now to make sure it's correct), I get a:
"Product key does not match the current Windows SKU" error.
Why is this happening? Do I need a certain burnt iso (from Sony in Japan?) because of the laptop's foreign origins or is something else causing the problem here?
Yes, you need a Japanese iso, they have regional editions.http://www.sevenforums.com/software/129340-product-key-does-not-match-current-windows-sku-foreign-product-key.html
I have been reading posts on seven- eight- registry with in in product does key key Product correspond BIOS not tenforums for years with pleasure and gratitude for all the solutions they provided But my current issue is one of the strangest things I've encountered in all these years Have been searching through a lot of posts but haven't found any similar issue or solution for it yet So here it goes Symptom the OEM product key in the registry of a Windows Pro installation laptop does not correspond with the OEM product key in the laptop's BIOS Here's the situation in short It concerns a laptop from a student friend of mine who asked me to upgrade her current Windows Pro x OS to Windows She couldn't tell me if the installation was the original OEM factory partition or if it perhaps could be a pirated version Since I wasn't about to just upgrade to Windows without checking the authenticity of the Windows OS I performed the regular checks see if it was activated already by running the quot Activate Windows quot program Product key in registry does not correspond with product key in BIOS check check under Control Panel - gt System and Maintenance - gt System tab if the OS was already activated check and run Microsoft's online Validation Tool check Everything seems fine the OS is activated and genuine Still the COA sticker was missing My friend didn't have any physical recovery media or other stuff with a license sticker on it So I thought I'd check the product key stored in the BIOS and compare it with the product key in the registry If they'd correspond all would be well However things turned out differently After retrieving the product key from the registry with several programs Magical Jellybean Key Finder Belarc Advisor and Windows Product Key Finder Pro I compared it with the BIOS product key retrieved with NeoSmart Technologies' Windows OEM Product Key Tool Result they did not correspond I couldn't believe it at first and double checked it with another program that retrieves both the registry product key and the BIOS product key and lists it in one table One Up's Recover Keys It confirmed my initial result I know that it's possible to run a pirated version that is activated and appears to be genuine and pass the validation tool And since it's a students' laptop I can't rule this out But it could also be possible that another genuine OEM version has been installed on the laptop and thus activated and genuine And that's why I want to be absolutely sure I'm doing the right thing with upgrading to Windows Therefore I'm a bit stuck in my upgrade decision process My questions are Should I just upgrade to Windows on the current Windows OS without knowing if the latter is truly genuine or not I suppose that the Windows upgrade will complete successfully since the current Windows OS has passed the validation tool but this is merely a prediction I haven't tried upgrading a pirated Windows OS so I'm not sure what happens in such a situation If the first question is answered positive will the Windows upgrade use the registry product key of the Windows installation and register the laptop hardware on the MS servers and tie the new Windows license to the laptop hardware config based on that registry product key If second question is answered negative will the Windows upgrade use the BIOS product key I know that since the Windows November update it is not necessary anymore to upgrade from the Windows OS first and then wipe everything for a clean full Windows install As I've read one can immediately start with a clean full Windows install and then enter the Windows product key when prompted to enter a key during the install process With this in mind would it be sensible to immediately do a clean full Windows install and enter the BIOS product key since this key is originally tied to the laptop hardware and completely disregard the registry product key of the current Windows OS I realize these are a lot of questions my apologies for this But ...

Because: When I fill my product number (which is A1GOOES) I am told by the webpage that my notebook is HP Pavilion g6-1a01 however I am really sure that my notebook is ProBook 4530s (it is written ON it and also it written in "System information").Hence, the problem is I cannot decide which update of BIOS I should download.

but the one that windows reports(useing slmgr.vbs -dli in run command) end in KKMRQ also tweakVI also reports this(with a totaly different key but ending in KKMRQ) why has this happened im confused as to why its like this. thanks
The product key is encrypted in the Registry, so maybe one of those commands/utilities has the wrong encryption algorithm.
If you bought new the key on the sticker on the laptop is your personal unique key and the one in the system is the OEM's "volume license" key.
I have had to put a new hard drive in my laptop after the original one failed.
I then reinstalled Vista using the product recovery CD that came with the laptop (not the recovery cds i made as these did not work!)
Vista is now asking me to supply a product key as the one given is incorrect.
I tried the key from the bottom of the laptop, but this does not work.
What to i do?
> . I tried the key from the bottom of the laptop, but this does not work
The Windows product key on the bottom side of your notebook is an OEM license key. That means this can?t be used with other Windows versions.

Just discovered that the Win 7 Professional Retail Version I purchased, downloaded & installed has a bogus product key. I've since ordered a genuine Win 7 copy. When it arrives, can I just enter the new product key into the existing system without reinstalling Win 7 again, following the "change product key" instructions? If not, is there a way to do this without a reinstall?
As long as you purchased a retail Windows 7 Pro, then yes you should be able to just change the key to the new one to activate with it.

Bill_Ving Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!I read your post about wireless networking poor performance and wanted to help. My immediate guess is that you might have mixed-mode networking going on. This happens when you have two different PCs networking in two different modes -- one using "G", the other using "N". The wireless router (or access point) can optimize performance for either mode, but not for both. So, the "G" mode drags down the performance of the "N" mode PC, but even worse, with the router set for mixed modes, it performs more slowly than with either PC connected by itself.Here are some other troubleshooting steps you can try: HP PCs - Troubleshooting Wireless Network and Internet (Windows 8) | HP® Customer SupportGood Luck========================================================================I am a volunteer and I do not work for, nor do I represent, HP.---------------------------------------------------------------Please click "Accept As Solution" on the post that solves your issue to help others find the solution.Please click the Thumbs-Up symbol on the left of the Reply button to say thanks fopr my help.========================================================================http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Wireless-and-Networking/ENVY-Notebook-m7-k111dx-w-intel-7260-notebook-sucks-down/td-p/5591130
I made a Google notebook to keep the minutes of a meeting my business partners and I held last weekend. I made them all collaborators on the notebook so they could all make any changes or annotations they felt necessary. However, when they go to access this notebook they are prompted for a password.
There is nowhere (at least that I can find) to even choose to password protect the notebook let alone change the password. I'm pretty confused as to what password the notebook could be. The only thing I can think of is that it's asking for the password to my gmail account, which I don't really want to be handing out. Any ideas on this one gang?
The hinge on my much-loved Notebook has become 'loose'. Can I find repair help locally? Baltimore, MD area. What is the correct term(s) to use to describe the problem?

I wanna dual boot Windows 8 Consumer Preview with my existing OS, Windows 7 Home Premium. I have created the necessary partitions and also created the bootable pendrive from the ISO downloaded.
When I begin the installation, everything goes fine until the Product Key screen comes up. I have tried 'NF32V-Q9P3W-7DR7Y-JGWRW-JFCK8' and 'DNJXJ-7XBW8-2378T-X22TX-BKG7J' but I get an error message saying 'We couldn't verify the product key. Check the installation media'
When I enter a random product key like '00000-00000-00000-00000-00000' it gives a message saying that the product key is wrong, but when I enter the correct product key I get the error message which I have put in bold statements above.
What shall I do? Please help.
Hello Abhishek, and welcome to Seven Forums.
The latest version of Windows 8 is currently the Release Preview. You might consider installing it instead.
Hope this may help,
My wife has a two-year-old Samsung notebook. Recently when she unplugged it the machine cut off, even though the battery said 79% charged (it wouldn't charge any further). I figured that the battery was bad so I bought another one from Amazon.
This one charges to 100% percent and does exactly the same thing. I'm perplexed but think there's something going on with the motherboard that won't let it use battery juice, even if Windows 8.1 says it's 100% charged.
I've tried the hold the power button down for 1 min with the battery out trick to no avail.
Any ideas? I'm stumped and think I might need to get her another notebook.
We've got a desktop hooked into a linksys B router, and a notebook that accesses the internet wirelessly thru that router. lately we havent been able to get a decent connection with the notebook, and if we've gotten any at all, it gets dropped soon. is the desktop getting the majority of the bandwidth, which is eliminating the notebook from getting enough? if so, is there anyway to limit the amount that the desktop is getting?
What changed from when it was working to now?
My own notebook (Asus EEE PC S101), running Windows XP service pack 3) was twice redirected to an unknown website when I wanted to visit the Guardian newspaper website. I was using IE version 8. Then the notebook froze. When this happened, I had to switch it off without using Cleanup, which I have used safely for a long time. When I had switched it on again, I used Firefox to go to the Techsupport Forum. I followed the instructions to download dds.scr and began running it. Then the notebook froze again. It still tells me "Two logs shall be created on your desktop" Now the cursor does not move any more either. I write this from another notebook, but I cannot create a logfile,m as everything is frozen on my own notebook. Help, please,

New here and so I hope that I am posting in the correct place My new notebook an M -MX was in the warranty depot as we thought it had a dvd burning problem however that was not the case it was the media Anyway before it was sent into the toshiba warranty depot the level tech phone support said to get the computer to be like it was when I unboxed it days earlier new and old with now notebook ghost problems?? notebook Ghosted this was last month And so to my frustration all of my programs were removed however before doing this the software techie at the office Ghosted it to my Western Digital Storage Unit and then sent it off to the Warranty Depot While it was in the shop I used my yr old toshiba satellite which I am now typing on at this moment I was finally able to get the software tech from the office to reGhost my new toshiba new notebook Ghosted with old notebook ghost and now problems?? M on this past Saturday and left it with him for a couple of hrs and then returned to pick it up as there was not much in the way of programs on it and so it wouldn t take long to Ghost the Images back Well in my Western Digital Storage unit are Ghosts of this year old satellite that I am presently using After the techie new notebook Ghosted with old notebook ghost and now problems?? got my Restore Disk installed and tried to reGhost the image onto the New M it crashed He was using the wrong Ghost he new notebook Ghosted with old notebook ghost and now problems?? was using the one that was from this unit I was not happy especially after he claimed that he now had it Ghosted with the proper Image and I tried it out and it was very sloooooow to Boot He said it was my Norton I keep a log and had brought it with me and showed him how long the Boots took before it was sent off to the Warranty Depot with all the few programs that I had installed on it He had been doing other work and coming back to my unit while it was Ghosting and when it was finished I also asked him to plug in my gig SanDisk flashdrive and he went into My Computer and clicked on the drive and it simply hung there with the Timer showing Needless to say I am not happy and am wondering if the fact that he Ghosted the wrong image from my year old Satellite on it could have done any damage He said he would call me this AM and hasn t so I left a message with him I used my USB SanDisk before and there were no problems now he is trying to tell me that this drive has a peculiar install program that can cause problems I googled for it and found nothing I talked to the computer retailer a small outlet that I frequent and they indicated that it is simply plug and play Why the tech mentioned a problematic install program is beyond me as all i was trying to do was read the contents Is there a possibility that this notebook has been damaged by trying to Ghost this satellite to it He did do a full disc system restore the second time he did the Ghost Imaging however the computer is acting SlOOOOOOOOw to boot the SanDisk simply hangs there with the timer showing I would appreciate any comments as I am frustrated as to what is going on here I mean I would assume a techie would label the Ghost image with a name so that he knew which computer it belongs to Thankyou for your time nbsp
Something you might want to try (it's a pita) is a repair of windows - this may fix some of the slowness issues you're seeing. The install program he's talking about is probably the U3 component of many larger USB pen drives. I think it's on most of Sandisk's newer large drives. A repair of windows might also take care of this. I seriously doubt that putting the wrong image on the machine and then putting another image on could do any damage to the machine itself - the folks here at my job do it all the time.
Hi, I'm new.
Right now, I'm really worried. I just bought Windows 7 Ultimate from Ebay, installed it and everything works fine. I tried the Product Key that came with it, but it said on the computer that it was blocked. That's ok, since it said on the page that it wouldn't work.
So I went to a website called Windows 7 Key Sale,Cheap Windows 7 Serial Key,Windows 7 Product Key Store!. as it was the first thing in google. I bought the Windows 7 product key, and I should get it soon.#
I didn't realise I had service pack 1... it came with the Discs... FML.
Is there any way I can delete service pack 1 before the disk gets here so it will actually work? Thanks so much if you can help.
Microsoft has said that these keys won't work with SP1 windows.
A product key number will activate the Windows 7 with or without SP1 installed.
However, that 2nd site is a pretty questionable website, and would have my suspicions if that product key number was legit or not as well.
Getting your Windows 7 from places like these is quite risky. They have a high risk of being fake, illegal, and loaded with a virus to top it off. It's always best to get your copy of Windows 7 from a more legit retailer, or directly from Microsoft.
I bought my Acer Aspire notebook with Win amp a touchscreen new in product Why? key. My a product is 'default' key Jan I have never been able to activate the product key it is being blocked I have since found out that the number I My product key is a 'default' product key. Why? located in the BIOS is a 'default' product key amp is plastered all over the internet amp certainly doesn't appear to be my unique personal number Why would it be a default number amp why is it on my laptop When I first rec'd it it wouldn't complete installation of Windows It was picked up amp sent to Acer Plymouth for checking This is what they did Passed Hitachi hard drive test memtest amp all other hardware tests Re-imaged hard-drive amp performed software recovery Updated BIOS When I got it back everything was working ok except for the product key activation I've been using it ever since Jan with only other problem Could something they did in Plymouth be the cause of this problem Acer has sent me Windows Recovery disks to do a factory reset but I've already done a factory reset for another problem amp that didn't activate the machine so why should another reset fix it
I would return to Acer for repair or replacement.http://www.eightforums.com/windows-updates-activation/31859-my-product-key-default-product-key-why.html
I purchased a copy of Windows from eBay and it came with a Product Key label Key for This Product Valid Not Product The disk doesn't say that it is the Service Pack level so I assume that it is the original version I decided to bypass all of the updating that would be required to bring the original version up to the SP level by just downloading an ISO of Windows SP from the Product Key Not Valid for This Product Microsoft web site Part of the Product Key Not Valid for This Product process for doing this is to enter the Product Key so that Microsoft can verify that the key is valid I entered the key and clicked VERIFY I got a message that this key was not valid for this product The FAQ stated that the key would not be valid for an OEM Enterprise etc version of the program This leads me to ask two questions If I have a valid Product Key for Windows -bit why would it not be valid for the SP version it's just the latest version of the original OS If I go ahead and install the original version of the OS from the disk that I have will I be able to receive the SP update when I have installed all updates up to that point Or is SP just a compilation of the original OS and all of the updates that were issued before MS released SP Thanks in advance
These are questions/situations for a Microsoft rep, IMO. Nothing anyone can tell you here at BC...is likely to be as valid as a simple phone conversation with an authorized rep of MS, charged with doing license activation..
A simple phone call would result in answers within a 15-minute block of time, IMO.
What is the difference between a Windows 7 Default Product Key and a Product Key? Just curious
one is for windows 7 and the other isn't?
what do you mean exactly?
Is the product key directly related to the install disk? That is, can I install Windows 7 on a computer and use a different product key than the disk I'm using to install, assuming this different product key is unregistered?
Or in another light: If I install using a registered copy but enter my legal copy's product key, is this a valid installation? Can this even be done?
There is no product key information on the installation disks.
If the version of Windows you install is the same as the product key you intend to use, it will be fine.

Hi, Shutdown the notebook. Tap away at the esc key as you start the notebook to enter the Start-up Menu. Select the Diagnostic Menu option ( f2 ) and run the tests on the Hard Drive. Post back with the results, including any error codes that may be generated. Can you also post back with the version of the operating system currently installed on the notebook.

Trying to help my daughter out, She has a laptop HP Pavillion DV6 that will only boot in the safemode. She called HP and of course she is 60 days out of warranty. Any suggestions? She's try to restore it to a point about a week ago but the same thing keeps happening, just boots in safemode.
Thanks for any and all suggestions,
Does the computer give out an error when your daughter tries to boot the computer to windows normally? Go to the safe mode menu again and this time, choose "Boot the computer to last known good configurations". See if this helps out at all. I would also recommend performing an In-Place Upgrade(Windows Repair) on the computer. You will definitely need your Windows 7 CD in order to perform this process. When was the last the computer was able to work successfully?
I seem to have a problem with my RAM i need to upgrade to a higher GB could someone please help and advise on what i need and the highest GB i can upgrade toas i have only had this computer for 7 months and the ram is full already.http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/HP-23-quot-PAVILLION-ALL-IN-ONE/td-p/5709690
At first time, the DVD player was working, and the second time when I tried to insert DVD to the player, the player made some sound like Krik Krik, and sipt out the DVD. Eveytime, different DVD used and the DVDs or Audio CDs are working with other Computer DVD players and CD players. My boss just bought it for classroom. But no DVD or CD player, it is not useful.

Hi and Welcome to TSF!
See if you can boot it without the battery.
If that doesn't work unplug the battery and power cable.
Then press and hold the power button for 45 seconds.
Replug in the power and battery to see if it will boot.

Solved the problem myself. Opened the tower and changed the port that the SATA drive cable connected to. At least after doing that and restarting the computer I was able to get into BIOS. Showed no hard drive as being recognized. Went to HP's site and found that Seatgate had a problem with some of the hard drives (500, 700, etc.) After calling a technician with HP it was decided that the hard drive had failed (no indication of it failing-it just stopped!!!)
HP is sending a new hard drive and a recovery disk (the recovery partition was on the hard drive that failed. No cost. There was still 50 days left on the warranty.
I guess we were LUCKY!
Thanks for looking at my computer problem.
Whilst working the computer froze. I removed the battery to switch of. When switching on the next time I got a message "scanning and repairing hard drive". This progressed to 9% and then made no further progress. After 10 hours I finally removed the battery again as there was no other way to do this. What can i do to revert to correct operation'/
Dear Customer, Try a Hard Reset as follows. Shut down the notebook, unplug the AC Adapter and then remove the battery. Hold down the Power button for a full minute. Plug in the AC Adapter ( leave the battery out for the moment ) and see if the notebook will start. If it doesnt load,Please perform the Steps as shown below:-1. Please "Turn OFF" the Notebook2. "Power ON" the Notebook and keep tapping the Escape Key during the start up to enter the Start-up Menu3. Now here, Please select the BIOS option [F10] and under the Advanced or Diagnostic tab4.

Hi. I bought this laptop used from someone online. I know it is old. It uses the FS1 socket, and has an A4 processor. So I can't expect too much. But it just locks up on me aall the time. As soon as I try to open anything, it just locks up. The day I got it, I was able to open Google Chrome and watch some Youtube videos. The next day, nothing. I think the HDD is screwed, and I would like to replace it with an SSD. My problem is, it will not detect my SSD. What can I do to get my SSD installed in this thing, so that hopefully I can use it for some basic things on the go?http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/pavillion-g6/td-p/5752267

I'm really useless when it comes to technology but was wondering if anyone could help me in finding out how to fix this problem please?

"The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)
There is no driver selected for the device information set or element."
