Activating windows RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    I have been trying to activate a new copy of windows on my computer, My previous build has been suffering problems for some time now. I have attempted to repair it to no avail. When I try to activate the new build I am told that the produck key is invalid and has been flaged by microsoft as a possible pirated copy. I have viewed other posts and followed advice on them and as far as I can tell this is not the case. I can only assume that in my attempts to rectify problems with my computer in recent months I have inadvertantly invalidated my product key myself. Can anything be done?

  • Hey Caz,

     

    Thank you for visiting the Microsoft Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA) forum.  Your issue is related to Product Activation.  The purpose of this forum is the support of the WGA program and your question falls out of the scope for our support. In an attempt to assist I would like to provide some information which may help. I do suggest trying to activate using the “Activate by Phone” method from the activation Wizard. Telephone numbers for Activation Centers vary by product license and country/region. Use the number provided on your Activation Wizard screen to call the Microsoft Activation Center.  Please follow the below guidance for telephone activation for activating Windows. 

     

     

    To contact a Microsoft customer service representative to activate Windows by phone, follow these steps:

    1.

    Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click Activate Windows.

    Or, click the Windows Activation icon in the notification area.

    2.

    Click Yes, I want to telephone a customer service representative to active Windows now.

    3.

    Click Read the Windows Product Activation Privacy Statement, click Back, and then click Next.

    4.

    Follow the steps in the Activate Windows by phone dialog box, and then click Next.

    Note The number appears now and differs based on the location that you select.

    5.

    When activation is completed and you receive the following message, click OK.

    You have successfully activated your copy of Windows.

    Also you may reference the following site for various telephone activation centers:  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/326851

    After you finish the above steps please restart the computer and try to validate Windows again: http://www.microsoft.com/genuine. Please locate the “Validate Windows” button in the upper right hand corner. Double click on the button and follow the guidance. Were you able to pass Windows Validation successfully? Please post again if you need further assistance. Thank you.
