XP activation RRS feed

  • Question

  • am trying to get activation for my xp on a pc that is not hooked to a phone.

    is it possible for someone to give me help on the correct telephone number to call?

    the one i contacted was a voice record that put me back in the pay per answer catagory.

    is there a place or area that can help without spending $59.00.

    If you cannot successfully activate via the internet, then choose the alternative option to "activate by phone".

    clicking Start button, then Run, and type in "oobe/msoobe /a", then press the Enter key located on your keyboard.

    2. Click Yes, I want to telephone a customer service representative to active Windows now.
