  • You need to contact the organization that issued you the KMS key (volume license key) for instructions on reactivating.

    You may just need to reboot a couple of time for Windows – but I think you’ll have to completely uninstall and reinstall Office, then activate it by telephone.
     
    To properly analyse and solve problems with Activation and Validation, we need to see a full copy of the report produced by the MGADiag tool (download and save to desktop - http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 )
    Once saved, run the tool.
    Click on the Continue button, which will produce the report.
    To copy the report to your response, click on the Copy button in the tool (ignore any error messages at this point), and then paste (using either r-click/Paste, or Ctrl+V ) into your response.
      - **in your own thread**, please
     
    Please also state the Version and Edition of Windows quoted on your COA sticker (if you have one) on the case of your machine, but do NOT quote the Key on the sticker!

  • If your Windows came preinstalled on your old computer you cannot use it on another one.  It isn't about the HDD, it is about the motherboard being different.  OEM licenses are not transferrable between different motherboards. 

    If you bought your Windows at retail or online for the old computer then you can click Start and type "activate", and doubleclick the top item in the Search pane like most other Windows commands.  It may require you to use phone activation.  Follow the instructions.

    If you bought Office at retail or online you should see a request for activation the first time you run any of the Office programs.

    Please follow Noel's intructions and run the MGADiag tool and paste the report in this thread.

  • Thanks a lot!

    Does my organization have to register for new activation keys or we can reused the old keys?

  • You'll have to ask the program administrator.  It's the administrator who keeps the accounting and deals with Microsoft.
