Reactivation of Windows? RRS feed

  • Question

  • When i restarted my computer, and the user name at start up of windows comes up, then a pop up comes up and says "Since the first time you have first activated windows, it has changed significantly. You must activate windows again" Sooooooooo I tried to reactivate windows(i don't know why i had to though) i put in my cd key and BAM, it says it is already in use. I just reformatted like a month ago and i used the same key. Also, why would i have to reactiavte it anyways?

     

    Now I am stuck with a unactivated windows, unprotected.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • I have the same problem.  I bought my computer 3 years ago from a local computer shop.  Two weeks ago i was getting a error message about service pack two.  Was weird because I thought I had it.  I tried to download it again and it cause my computer to lock up.  I had to manually shut it down and restart.  When I restarted windows would not load so I had to load from my XP disk.  Now i cant authenticate.  I keep all my code keys in a notebook and when i put my key in it would not work.   This is causing me major problems because I work from home and windows needs to be authenticated so I can install software for my job.  Can someone please help me with this.

  • D Noble,

     

    If your compuer is running, please follow these steps for assistance:

    Step 1 is to run the utility at this link http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012, then click the Windows tab, click the "Copy" button, then paste the report into a response in this thread.

    Step 2 is to look on the computer or with the materials you received with the computer or with your retail purchase of  Windows to see if you have a Certificate of Authenticity (COA).  If you have one, tell us about the COA.  Tell us:

    1.  What edition of Windows XP is it for, Home, Pro, or Media Center, or another version of Windows?

    2.  Does it read "OEM Software" or "OEM Product" in black lettering?

    3.  Or, does it have the computer manufacturer's name in black lettering?

    4.  DO NOT post the Product Key.

    Not sure what to look for?  See this page for reference:  http://www.microsoft.com/resources/howtotell/en/coa.mspx

     

    Note:  If the "Resolve" button on the Windows tab is NOT grayed out, that means the Utility found problems with your installation of Windows that it may be able to repair on its own.  Please click the "Resolve" button and follow any displayed instructions.
