we have had our laptop for about 8 months, we bought it off a friends son-inlaw, everything has been fine with it and we have had no probs but yesterday when i switched it on, my screensaver went black and a message popped up saying "this copy of windows does not pass genuine windws validation, you maybe the victim of software counterfeiting".
just dont understand it! how after so long can this happen? has this happened to anyone before? what should we do?
