Window 7/ Vista problem.
Due to being a clumsy dolt recently managed to damage my trusty old lap top, that came with Windows 7, during the course of a long car journey.
To cut a long story short a friend gave me an old lap top that he had but which had the hard drive removed from it and minus a power lead. So I get a power lead and, to my complete surprise, I manage to retrieve my old hard drive and install it (well slide it into the slot provided but trust me, that is a huge step forward in terms of my technical know how) and everything fires up and is working fine.
But I keep on being told by the lap top that my Windows 7 is a pirated copy. I have been able to ascertain that the current lap top I am using came with Windows Vista so I am looking for a way to register my copy of Windows 7 so that I stop being told I am a pirate. I have the code from the back of my old lap top.
Any help much appreciated and please try and explain it as though you are dealing with somebody who struggles to grasp any and everything to do with technology.
Thanks in advance.
