  • Question

  • I have currently reformated my computer with the original copy of XP that I bought with the Computer that I built in Febuary of last year.  The windows activation over the internet will not allow me to activate, because it says that my product key has exeeded the number of times that it can be activated.  Why is this?  And will I be able to activate it so that i can use my computer?  message number is 45092. 

    Thank-you for your time

  • Hi Ian,

      I suggest using the Activate by Phone method. Also, the Activation Rep may be able to answer your question regarding not being able activate over the internet.
