    Its a Gateway machine, used the Mega Gateway bios to flash, did the cert and key, was great. Runing SLIC Toolkit, it comes up with ACRSYSACRPRDCT_V2.1.

    Last night, it came up that my Build 7601 is not genuine, I had used Win 7 Ultimate 32-bit for my install, and things had been working fine until then. About 3 to 4 months.

    I have tried different Certs and keys to no effect. Ran OpaTool and same result.

    I'm at a loss, any ideas?

    Thats what I get for reading and lurking - I'm unable to post image or links with only 7 posts. I'll be back in a few minutes.

    Obviously, change xx for tt and 3's for w's.

    I can't see any obvious faults in your report. You could try using WAT Fix (yes it works for BIOS mods too) and then revalidate online. Links in my signature :)

    Thanks Daz, but didn't work. I'll just trash this install and do a re-install. Appreciate you looking at this.

    Update - I formatted and re-installed with W7P 32-bit, with a fresh download of the iso from MSDN. All back up and running. In fact, I'd suggest that there may have been something wrong with the install from the beginning. The system hasn't ever run this well.

    Thanks again Daz!
