  • Question

  • I have tried to re-activate my windows vista wersion as my laptop had asked me for it whilst browsing through my laptop one day, so as i entered my Product Key and clicked activate, it was doing fine until i got the Error Code 0xC004E003 has anyone got any ideas on how to fix this as this is meaning i am unable to download update form microsoft, which then means i can't update my laptop to stop it freezing every 15-20 minutes.

  • Hello Woody2394,

      If you are unable to Activate over the Internet, what happens when you try the Activate by Phone method?

    1. Click on the Start button and in the Start Search box type in:  slui.exe 4

    2. Press the Enter key on your keyboard.

    3. Select your Country.

    4. Follow the instructions for phone activation (no charge).
