Windows 7 will not activate RRS feed

  • Question

  • I installed a windows 7 Pro upgrade in November and it ran fine until I had a MOB failure. I replaced the MOB and added some ram during the down time. Windows 7 was reinstalled and I thought I had activated it at that time. I have not noticed any activation required windows popping up, but yesterday my wife was working on the computer and windows said that activation was required and her desktop was black. I logged on tonight to run the activation and got a activation failure. I followed the repair links and eventually brought me to a website to purchase Win 7 because my copy was not valid. It was and is, so what is going on with this validation problem.

    The failure showed a code

    0xc004c008

  • I just called the phone activation system and it activated. That is a pain in the butt! what is going on with the internet activation? I hope that this does not happen again.
