My Lappy ran out of battery, and seememd to have a problem actually shutting down. It finally shut down, however when I have rebooted a message appears saying that the copy of windows I have is not guenuine, and guides me to microsoft website. Also my screen resolutioned itself to very small.

I have had the Lappy for about 3 months with no worries, but I am a little concered as to consiquences of this...

All advise happily accepted

firstly dont worry about your spelling and second chill you say your laptop is only a month or so old are you sure it is genuine? if so dont panic this happened to me with my new laptop "6 months old now" a few days later it was fine I feel it is a teething problem with the windows genuine advantage tool stay with it, it will be ok I am sure.

don't know (but I doubt) if guenuine,
But apart from being irritating, is it ok to work around it?
