Windows 7 asking for an activation key, already activated before, not accepting key. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've been using Windows 7 since it came out, but all of a sudden its asking me to activate it again for some reason. It says its because of a hardware or driver change, I have not changed anything recently. Its a legal key, first it was from Dell's upgrade program, then I upgraded to Pro from my MSDNAA key. It says there are 3 days left, please respond soon!

  • Hello Tiopp,

      What happens when you Activate?  (Note: If activation over the internet fails, please try the Activate by Phone method)

    Thank you,
