If it is still under warranty, why arent you contacting Lenovo for support/ re-installation?

Not all media are compatible with the product key behind your laptop. If you have a product key from Lenovo and try installation with a retail version, it wont accept the key. You need to hunt for the media from Lenovo and it will accept the OEM product key.

However, I feel you should contact Lenovo and get it fixed rather than trying pirated versions.

Do you have a reinstall CD.Try that.ALso enter 25 Digit Key.
To be very frank I changed RAM in my laptop after buying myself ,nothing will happen.You just have to open one screw in bottom side. Just follow the instructions in ur laptop manual.Be careful to avoid static it can cause permanent damage some times.

Best of lucks

Default Vista a Mess

Really i'm too shocked but the fact remains it is not accepting and on the bottom it is written Vista not XP

You can always get a cheap copy of Xp if you are not comfortable with Vista.

For memory i dont know about Lenovo but HP and Sony dont void warranty when I install it for customers.

Dont have the CD and the dealer said the sys is different to the old ones and it needs to open fully from the front and this not a easy job it might fiddle with the warranty so better talk to Lenovo and which is not responding to my call
