Evaluation?! RRS feed

  • Question

  • I bought a Dell with Window's Vista preinstalled.  I moved, and when I tried to reconnect my computer, I get a message in the right hand corner saying its an Evaluation Copy.  Bull ____, I bought this because the full version was installed!  It worked fine before, and I even had it activated online when I first purchased it.  Every time I sign in, a window pops up saying Windows Activation.  When I type in the code on the side of my computer, it says it isn't valid and gives me an error code of 0xC004E003.  I tried the phone activation without solution.  HELP.  I've been on hold with Microsoft support for over an hour.
