Please run the MGA Diagnostic Tool and post back the report it creates:
  • Download MGADiag to your desktop.
  • Double-click on MGADiag.exe to launch the program
  • Click "Continue"
  • Ensure that the "Windows" tab is selected (it should be by default).
  • Click the "Copy" button to copy the MGA Diagnostic Report to the Windows clipboard.
  • Paste the MGA Diagnostic Report back here in your next reply.

A 15 year old PC preceded Windows 7. Hence, the COA Product Key would not be for Windows 7. If you have a legitimate version you should also have the Product Key stored away with the installation DVD or wherever you keep your important computer documents. You may want to say something about this in addition to the MGADiag.

You can only run the slmgr.vbs -rearm "This being a legitimate legal Microsoft command." I do believe 3 times and have it effective so your out of luck there. Interesting you would know this legitimate MS advanced command. You would have to reroute the CMD DIR to the DIR were this command file lives. So your going to have to Download MGADiag as was requested. I'm amazed Win7 runs on that old box anyway.
