Windows says my key is not "valid" RRS feed

  • Question

  • Every time i try to validate my windows it says my key is over used.  How many PC's can you use 1 key with?  I know my key is only on 1 other PC and that is my sisters computer.  The key and the windows cd came with that PC and i would figure that you would atleast be able to use it on two computers?  Any help or advice will help me a lot.  Thank you...

    For the most part, you can only use one product key per machine.
