Hi,

recently I ran into a lot of trouble with my otherwise nice LG P300/vista32 business.

It started two days ago with a message: invalid activation/product key, although its a legit copy of vista. I even wasn't able to run the genuine check again at this stage, cause firefox crashed when dl the validation exe. It was also not possible to start a cmd window or iexplore.exe. Everything just crashed.
Funny part is, a simple reboot solved the problem... I thought.

Atm I seems that vista is throwing every bsod at me it has to offer. I have to reboot a couple of times before I'm able to login without errors..

Types of BSODs I get:
1) memory_management
2) win32k.sys (problem detected/windows has been shut down..)
3) irq_not_less_or_equal
4) page_fault_in_nonpaged_area

What I did so far:
-I ran complete system/rootkit scan with Avira already. System seems clean.
-Tried to run the vista memory diagnostic tool, but it didn't start testing (0% after 1-2h)

Its quite frustrating and extremely annoying, since I have to do some work.

Any ideas or suggestions would be highly appreciated!
Cheers

Hi
It seems we have the same problem, except I'm running Vista Home Premium.
I got my Invalid License message yesterday [along with countless other people].
Some seem to have fixed the issue, but I suspect it's something to do with the Windows Defender updates [this was the only new update installed since the problem].
Of course Microsoft deny this.
I'm currently waiting a response from a member of their team, but looking at the problems with other users too I'm not holding my breath.

It's a p.i.t.a having to boot up twice and get error messages, but I can run my programs no problem once it's booted a second time.

I can only suggest you go to this URL

Good luck! I'll be watching this thread. ;)

Thanks for your response and the information neurotica. At least I'm not alone it seems..

Update: memtest86+ spilled out **** loads of errors, so at least the ram is defective.
The activation error seems to be an independent issue. however, my vista installation is completely wasted now :(
