  • Try using telephone activation

     

    telephone activation (operator calls)

     Click on the Start button

    in the Search box, type

    SLUI 4

     and hit the Enter key

    follow the instructions, but when asked which service you require by the telephone ansafone, do NOT reply - this should force an operator to respond, who can deal with you

  • Did you actually speak to an operator? - you need to.

    Ask WHY it's been blocked, how many times it's been activated and when it was first activated, and compare that to your memory, and then argue your case - make sure that you have as much information to hand as possible - the disk, packaging, receipts etc.

  • Havent will do that tommorow morning. I am sure i have the receipt somewhere i also have the full package as new with everything. Now about how many times they have been activated i dont remember since i buy them as soon as windows 7 came out. But its a lot of times for sure.

  • WHY?

    The only time you should need to reinstall is when you change motherboards.

    Any other time, it's much simpler and quicker to restore an activated image - you can be back up and running with a fully updated system in a couple of hours, rahter than having to go through the pain of installing all the updates and other software.

  • Actually a format is taking me no more than one hour to do.

    Basically when my pc has a problem i format it. Its must faster than having to search and solve the problem. When i do that it takes me more than 1 hour to fix lets say a virus problem.

    I dont have files on my pc that i need i mostly use it for games and videos so i dont care to keep my files.

    I remember two times that i made a format atleast 3-4 times in few days.

    One of those times it was a PSU problem.. I changed 2 motherboards and almost everything else untill i found that this was causing the problem. (It wasnt that my pc wasnt working everything was fine for 1-2 days then suddendly something wasnt working correct. One was the HDD one the RAM one the graphic card and so on)

    I also have moved from a home pc to laptop 2-3 times during the last few years.

    basically thats the reason i bought retail. It was saying that i can activate it as many times i want as long as they stay at one pc. Or this wasnt true?

  • You yourself have just admitted that you've activated on at least 6 different machines.

    MS just needs to be confident that you're the only one using the license you paid for and they sold, and that it's only in use on one machine.

  • So if i buy a retail version i still have to use it on one machine?

    Then whats the reason of the retail?

    I admitted that i transfered my licence to those machines. I always format the pc before i sell it. My licenced was only used by me. And at only 1 machine at a time. Ofcourse i was the owner of that machine.


    DId actually microsoft expect from me to keep only 1 machine during the last 4 years?

  • ANY normal Windows License is only valid for ONE install at a time.

    The main  difference between OEM and Retail Licenses is that a Retail License can be moved to a new/replacement machine, while an OEM License lives and dies on the first motherboard on which it is activated (except under very specific circumstances)

    Many people are stil using the same machine that they bought before Vista was released in early 2007 - the number of people replacing working machines regularly (i.e. more often than every 2 or 3 years) is relatively small.

    I have heard that MS block a normal Retail Key when it's been activated 60 times - I don't know whether that's true.

    If we assume that it is true, then you've effectively activated the machine every 20 days  since you got it - that's excessive by anyone's standards. There is no need to activate until nearing the end of the grace period (30 days) - and given your apparent history, you need NEVER have activated it at all!

  • Reason that i always activated windows soo many times it was because i didnt know that there was a limit of activations so i didnt care much about it.

    I changed pc about 5 times the last few years plus 2-3 times hardware for those pcs. I made no more than 20 activations. As i sayed before i never activated windows in more than one pc at a time just saying that again to avoid confusion. Maybe the limit of activations you can do is less?

    With my windows vista retail however i never had that problem.

    Anywhay i will make the call and see what is going on.

    Thx for your help.
