Can no longer activate Windows 7 Ultimate after re-install RRS feed

  • Question

  • I brought a copy of Win 7 back in November 21st of last year and I have reason to suspect it may have a pirated Product Key as I can no longer activate the product over the internet claiming an error code of 0xC004C003, and my product ID does feature a 068 with in. I was slow to find this problem if only because I had no problems what so ever the first time I installed it but since then I had to re-install due to trying to resolve another problem I already had regarding constant disconnects from the network I can no longer activate it since.

     

    The product was brought from e-bay and I was unaware of the fact it was be possible to pirate the key, despite the fact it showed all the signs of it being genuine AND I had received it sealed in a new box.

     

    Can anyone just confirm for me that this really is a pirated key and not because someone at MS suspects it may be before I go chasing it up because I can no longer find the seller on e-bay but I still have the receipts and some of the sellers details but not enough to find them again.

    Unfortunately, your Key is from a not-for-resale MSDN account. You need to claim an immediate refund from the vendor - do NOT accept the offer of a new key, and do NOT allow them to waste time with an RMA (all they are trying to do is to get past the 45-day claims window. or avoid you sending the evidence of their crimes to the authorities)
    Please read the following stickies....

    The pirates have got VERY good at this over the past few years, as the price of equipment for manufacturing the packages drops, and as factories open in less well-policed countries.

  • Thanks for the response Noel, it's a real irritation to find this out, isn't there usually a big sticker that says not for resale on the box, they must've known this before auctioning it up on e-bay.

     

    The item was brought from Ireland as a matter of fact, but the 45 day with E-bay had already passed which has forced me to contact the seller first, which I have done so and I await his reply now. In the event they do not refund me the money for the purchase what are my options aside from contacting E-Bay?

    Bear in mind that the whole package is a forgery - it's not a real MSDN box (there is no such thing. MSDN software is normally distributed either as a set in a folder, or electronically).
    Threatening the vendor with police action sometimes has a salutary effect - especially if you know their address:)
