Back to the repair shop !?
By "replacing" a cooling fan is not triggering Vista reactivation process !!!
Have they reinstalled OS,replaced the hard drive !?

If you have an option to activate Windows ,then follow the activation process,call Microsoft and when requested change the installation key and then try new activation !?

...or...

Purchase a Windows 7 upgrade,if the laptop 'keeps' the minimum requirements !?
