Thread: windows xp: Validation Incomplete: Unable to Perform Validation

  1. #1
    i reinstalled windows today after a hardrive crash last night... now when i go to update windows i get this message (Validation Incomplete: Unable to Perform Validation ). umm. no. i do realize this is a filesharing board i'm asking for help on but i did actually buy this copy of windows and it is only used on this machine. i'm wondering if anyone can give me a work around to be able to update and get past this or a way to resolve this w/ microsoft since they dont give any help on their website

    If your XP is legit. Call M$.

    I agree. Microsoft has operators in place that do nothing but assist people with activation problems, provided of course that their copies of the operating system are indeed legitimate and that they are being applied to the same hardware.

    Basically they will walk you through a process which verifies the legitimacy of your copy and license. If it passes, they will issue you a new key which will activate your operating system fully.

    This will be your best avenue of approach rather than trying to scour the internet for questionable XP hack tools, IMO.

    I was forced to the same sort of torture a few years ago with HP/Compaq's support center.

    I feel your pain.

    I validated Windows Xp BORG edition by calling the number. I think they will validate anything.
