Windows 7 activation help RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I recently took in my notebook, a HP dv6-1375dx in to Staples for repair. It seems they were not able to resolve a virus removal successfully, so a re-install was performed. Some time later, I was asked to activate my MicroSoft product tools by entering a product key. Not having one, I went back to Staples and made a purchase for a new product key.

    Everything was fine, until now. I am being asked to activate Windows 7. I tried using the product key that was on the bottom of the notebook. This was an invalid product key.Next,  I tried entering the product key from the CD Staples had given me ending in 3Q6C9 and received Error Code: 0x3004E003, license evaluation failure. Now I am confused.

    I ran the diagnostic tool, and this is what was returned. I would greatly appreciate your assistance. Many thanks!

  • Greetings,

    Thanks for your message. Just wanted you to know that I purchased the Microsoft Office 2010 Home and Student (Product Key Card).  I was previously running the software suite 2007 Microsoft Office for Word, Powerpoint, etc, so I seized the opportunity for an upgrade.  I apologize for the confusion.

    This is first time I have asked for help using this support forum. I am grateful for the responses I have received. My problem has been solved.

    Again, MANY Thanks!

    For some reason, your PC can’t reconcile the BIOS SLIC table and the built-in certificates that should be in the OS.
    This means that the OEM_SLP Key is unable to self-activate as designed, and has attempted to activate using the MS servers – where it is blocked from doing so.
     
    You need to change the Key to the one on your COA sticker on the machines case (or inside the battery compartment) – using the Change Product Key link on the System Properties page.
    You will need to activate by phone

  • "Not having one, I went back to Staples and made a purchase for a new product key."

    What exactly did you purchase at Staples?  The only key Staples sells without Windows is an Anytime Upgrade key.  Is that what you bought?  Staples cannot sell just a product key.  Microsoft does not permit that.  An Anytime Upgrade key is of no use in activating the Windows you already have.

    Whatever you bought, your Windows is not a retail copy but it is a factory installed copy,

    Windows Product ID Type: 2
    Windows License Type: OEM SLP

    The problem is that you can only activate this type of Windows license manually with the COA key printed on the label affixed to your computer, just as Noel says.  Make sure you are entering the product key and not some other numbers.  The product key looks like the one in your report (but that key cannot be used manually). 

    *****-*****-73CQT-WMF7J-3Q6C9 (a typical key)

    Find the COA label on the case or inside the battery compartment (if a laptop) and copy down the five groups of five characters.  Press WinKey + Pause/Break, scroll to the bottom of the screen, and click on the Change Product Key link.  Enter the product key.  It is likely you will need to use phone activation.  Just follow the instructions.

    Be sure you are reading the alphanumeric characters correctly.  B looks like 8, etc. so use a magnifying glass to be sure.

    If it still does not work you need to return to Staples for help.  It is possible that they did not use the correct OEM copy of Windows on your computer.
