Solved!

Not genuine MS OS after Win7 December 2014 update applied

Product name: HP Pavilion dv6 Notebook PC. Product number: A3L69EA#ABU.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit Service Pack 1.

Applied Win 7 dec2014 update this morning.

Since doing so the "Windows Activation Technology" window has popped up on powering the PC up.

Have never had a problem with it before.

Why has it happened?

How do I fix it?

 

Any help welcome.

 

Thanks in anticipation

 

Ian

Hi @Gesids ,

Thank you for visiting the HP Support Forums and Welcome. I have read about your HP Pavilion dv6-6b60ea Entertainment Notebook and Windows Activation Technology popping up. You can do a system restore. System restore will help if something automatically updated and did not go well on the Notebook.

 

When performing a System restore please note remove any and all USB devices. Disconnect all non-essential devices as they can cause issues.

Please let me know how this goes.

 

Thanks.

This requires you to contact MS about your Activiation or look at your COA sticker on the bottom of your laptop or inside your battery bay and input that Product Key in and see if it updates it. But if you are using a different O/S then what what the Product Key correspondents to then you will have to call and speak to a MS representative and purchase the right Product Key to activiate your O/S.

Windows 10 drivers may be available through Windows Update

BTW, Millions of folks have gone back from Win10 to their prior O/S -- something you don't hear about from MS. by WAWood but ALL to TRUE
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Those that want HD Gaming should plan to invest in a Gaming Laptop to handle those requirements. Eamples GTA V or Crysis 3.

Dear All.

Sorry for the delay in repying, small familly crisis.

 

Firstly I did a system restore as suggested by Mrs Tenter.

This made no difference.

 

I then tried to validate the installation and this only informed me that I needed to purchase a valid serial no.

As the original is / was genuine I didn't feel like paying out another £70.

 

After a bit of of investigating on the web, I came across notes refering to MS update KB3004394 as being suspect.

 

This was similar to what that" camulder" had found.

Further investigation turned up that MS had an issue for Windows 7 SP1 and had issued another patch.

KB3024777 to correct the problems.

Applied this patch but yhe problem still persisted.

Found I had to reapply the system validifcation process again and after receiving a window stating that the system was valid have not had any more problems.

 

N.B. Not had any problems on desktop or notebook , only had problem on Laptop.

 

Lets hope thats the end of it.

 

Thank you to the people who responded to me so promptly.

Regards

 

Ian
