Windows XP activation hell for disable users. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello I have read the FAQ about Windows XP troublesome with activation and like to point out my difficulties with contacting microsoft by phone because I am deaf.


    I have been with window XP for more than 5 years i'm sure that costing me a bomb at around £150 ($300). Last month Windows XP activation refused to recognise my genius keys as I understood that I had re-activate so many time but that for a good reason with re-formating due to online virus, hacking and spywares etc.


    "You are permitted to reinstall and activate XP as many times as you want to, as long as your use of XP maintains compliance with the End User Licensing Agreement (EULA).

    After a certain number of activations within a certain time period, automatic online activation will be suspended (This will also happen the first time you re-install and activate some OEM versions of Windows XP), which will require that you do a Telephone Activation. To do so, rerun the Activate Windows Wizard and select "Activate my product using the telephone".  Follow the phone prompts.

    If the automated telephone activation is not accepted, you will be offered the option to speak with a live activation representative.  Choose that option.  The rep will ask a few questions for the purpose of confirming that you are still using your license for XP in accordance with the EULA.  If this is confirmed, the rep will issue an activation code for you to enter into the Activation Wizard."


    Again I am not happy because I do not have a choice that I cannot hear the phone?.
