Windows not able to activate - *not* code 068 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Okay, so I thought I had the same problem as a bunch of other people - bought what appeared to be a new-in-the-box Windows 7 off of webstore.com, it installed fine, now it's telling me Windows has blocked my product key. (The little popup in the corner saying Windows failed to activate)

    I ran the diagnostic, expecting to see the code 068 that would tell me it was fake.  Well, I didn't - can anyone tell me what is wrong?  

    As I said, this was a new, in the box, shrink-wrapped, etc. copy, mailed from within the US, that a bunch of people had bought the same product from the same seller online and had said it worked for them (yes, I know, this could easily have been faked as well).  Also the seller responded numerous times to my questions even after the sale was made.  

    Also - what happens if I just keep on using this copy?  Will it one day stop working altogether, or will I just keep getting these popups all the time?  My school computers (also on Windows 7) have a little notice in the corner saying "This copy of Windows is not genuine" but besides that, they work.

    Thanks,

    Tzafra

    Anyway, this is my result:

    It's still a counterfeit - the -221- code tells us that this is an other MSDN license being abused. (-068 series is for Ultimate - 220 series for Pro, and -230 series for Home Premium, IIRC)
     
    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.(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)

  • OK, thanks...I messaged the seller and contested the transaction through the payment website.

     

    Does anyone know if I can reformat my computer and go back to my old (legal) Windows Vista that the machine came with?  Honestly I don't see that much of a difference and I'd rather be using legal software.

    Thanks,

    If your computer came preinstalled with Vista there should have been a Recovery Utility provided in it - either by way of a drive partition which you access at boot, or by way of creating the DVDs necessary. If that is no longer an option, you can contact the manufacturer and order a set of Recovery Disks from them - this will put the system back to the same state in which it arrived.
     
    If you have a retail  disk then yes, you can simply reinstall Vista using your Vista Product Key.
