  1. hm uninstalling sp1 seemed to do the trick, thanks should i be able to install the RTM version without getting the same problem?
  2. ohhhh thanks, i'll try that do you know if there's a way to see if it works or not? i only get the tool tip pop up once a day and i'd rather not have to wait for it

  4. That is the problem. When you do a clean install, you MUST put in a key that matches the Vista version you want to install. Good luck! i dont recall that but how come it would just start telling me that my license is about to expire now its been quite a while since i got this computer
  5. it was preinstalled its home premium updated to sp1 i would have called dell by now, but im not too fond with dealing with customer service edit: iirc, i didnt have to enter a key when i reinstalled
  6. oh thanks, i'll try that i didn't know where to find my product key so i dled a keyfinder and it's completely wrong does anyone know whether to check if it's actually activated though? because i only get the pop up once a day usually around 2 am
  7. i keep getting a tool tip pop up apparently my vista license will expire in 6 days and its telling me i have to backup all my data and install another copy of vista why is this? i bought this dell inspiron 1520 around the end of august if i go to control panel -> system, it says my vista is activated and everything so i dunno what to do when i first got this laptop, i did a clean install following one of the guides on the notebookreview forums, could that be the issue? this one: http://forum.notebookreview.com/showthread.php?t=157838
