Activaion Help RRS feed

  • Question




    I need some help sorting out activation problem I am having. Everything was running fine until I restarted my pc lasttime and now at the bottom right of my desktop I have the text, "This copy of Windows is not genuine". In system properties it says I am activated and when I try to activate windows it says "Activation was successful". When I goto the genuine microsoft software site it says "Windows must be activated before validation can determine if this copy of Windows is genuine".


    I am not quite sure what to do.  I have included a diagnostic report below, I appreciate any help.

  • The other thing you can try is to call 1-800-MICROSOFT (1-800-642-767638).  The support agents there should be trained on how to help with your case.

  • Please also post the error code you get (if any) when you validate by clicking "Validate Windows" here: www.microsoft.com/genuine
    The error code will be gray and in brackets at the end of the message on the page that says validation failed.  (It'll look something like this:  [0xC004C000]).


    If your System Properties window is showing that you're activated and online validation says you're not, please:
    1. Phone activate and speak with a support agent when you’re given the option.  You can start by typing "slui.exe 4" in the search field in the Start Menu and pressing Enter. Follow the prompts through phone activation (be ready for lots of numbers) and then reboot.  The phone activation process takes about 6 minutes.
    2. Once you're done, please revalidate by clicking on "Validate Windows" here: www.microsoft.com/genuine
    After you've validated successfully you can log out and log back in or reboot to get rid of any non-genuine messaging you may be getting.

    If you’ve tried phone activation and you're still reaching the same validation failure page (with error code 0xC004C4A6), please open a free service request by visiting: https://support.microsoft.com/oas/default.aspx?c1=509&gprid=9860 and post your confirmation number here.  I'll contact you directly so we can figure out the cause of your issue. 

     If you're not in the US, please also post the name of the support agent who contacts you by e-mail once you've made the free service request.

     Thank you!

  • The error code I get is [0xC004C4A6].


    I tried the phone activation again, but I still get the same error.


    I shall start a service request now.

  • I can't seem to start a service request, when i fill it all in and push continue, I get the error:


    "An unknown application error occurred. Please try again in a few minutes."


    I have tried several times, and it just isnt working.

  • I tried again today to start a service request and i got the same error. Is it not working or is it just me?


    I am going to try and reinstall windows, see if that helps my activation problem.
