    We get this issue at work with branded Notebooks. A lot of Samsung Notebooks seems to suffer from this issue but I doubt it's anything to do with SP1.

    actually you are wrong...


    theres a patch called 'KB971033' which is causing it. and that one small patch alone effects the entire way how windows is activated.

    if you have it installed. your genuine installation might have been mistakenly flagged as a pirated copy of windows. and you must re-validate it either online or by calling up M$.

    M$ use to make it as a standalone update patch, then people were getting smart so they hid it inside SP1. what nerd cant resist the urge to update to the next service pack???

    Google the patch.

    Oh rly?

    So explain to me why false-positives happen when SP1 isn't installed? Arrogant get! We still get false positives in earlier versions of Windows.

    because M$ slipped a WGA activation tool inside Internet Exporer 8 which may mistakenly flag a genuine installation as a pirate copy.

    False positives happen all the time. but im saying that the SP1 doesnt fix the issue and people are still having their geniune copy of windows flagged as pirated.

    just trying to help a fellow TPU member get rid off his unwanted equipment:laugh:

    in all seriousness i'd say £50 is the average price off a 5.1 set up + £20 for the wirelss rear speakers - £10 for Dell and you get £60+ delivery
