I purchased an Asus Eee PC netbook about 18 months ago. I bought it from NewEgg. It was advertised with a limited edition of Windows. So I thought fine. All I really need is word. All of a sudden I get messages that my windows software is not genuine. I am wondering if the manufacturer or individual installing window 7 on my computer used bogus software ? I called New Egg and they said to call Asus. They told me to update my computer but it did not help. I am still getting messages that the copy of windows on my computer is not genuine. Any suggestions ?
I had the same problem but in my case the hard drive was damaged and I had to replace it, called Bestbuy to get my product key, they've directed me to Dell and they told me to bring the laptop to them blah blah blah, then I just downloaded a fresh-ultimate copy of windows 7 with its activation and it worked perfectly fine. If you need a product key look under your laptop there should be a sticker with the product key and all that good stuff, if you want a fresh copy, then contact you manufacturer or do what I did. I hope that helped, have a great day.
