Windows OEM Activation Failed Error 0xC004E003

Q: Windows OEM Activation Failed Error 0xC004E003

My harddrive recently failed on my laptop which is a Dell, I've purchased a new harddrive and installed windows, unfortunately the sticker containing the key has faded to the point where it's unreadable, however I did manage to get a copy of the key. On trying to activate the key it says it's failed and gives the error code mentioned in the title. The SLUI 4 does not bring up a phone prompt and I've tried the stop service and rename tokens to .bar to no avail.

This is my MGADiag report

Preferred Solution: Windows OEM Activation Failed Error 0xC004E003

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Windows OEM Activation Failed Error 0xC004E003

Have you tried just going to the Start Orb and typing in just (SLUI) and tick on (slui.exe)

Then tick on (Learn more online benefits of genuine Windows) then go down the page and you will see (Validate Now)

A:Windows Activation Error 0xC004E003

The install is at the very least invalid.
The installed Key is the OEM_SLP Key from an ACER computer - and invalid on your Sony.
For what version and edition of Windows is your Sony licensed - according to the COA sticker on the case?

Hello Alvissmin and welcome to the forums

Your SLIC table appears to be corrupt:

You will have to reinstall Windows using the recovery discs that came with your computer, then activate it with the key on the COA sticker

I have done a clean reinstall of Windows 7 Home Premium x64 SP1 on and Acer Aspire 5738G Laptop that I originally purchased Brand new from a large trusted company.

I am having trouble activating "error code 0xC004E003"

I got that error using a product key a programme retrieved for me before I done the clean reinstall. I did not know about the product key sticker on the bottom of my laptop at that time.

The key on the sticker won't even type all the way so I can't even test that key, I had the same problem and with that key on the last install and was told i had the wrong ISO now this ISO is no different.


This laptop has been in for hard drive repair with new image, now I don't know what key the they used to activate. I would assume the same one(hopefully)

I had BSOD problems and thats why I have done a clean install which has fixed all the problems I had previously.

what can I possibly do to activate asap I only have three days to fix this?

Hi,
I was updating my windows 7 premium windows on my laptop to windows 10 using the windows update tool and ran into bit of a snag. Mid way of the update my laptop turned off due to thermal overheating. Upon starting laptop after it had cooled down, laptop started rolling back to the previous version of windows. Rollback was flawless except for losing the activated windows key.

The few options of restoring key is out for me, such as, the sticker behind laptop is not there anymore (its an old hp g62 laptop), possible code within box is also not an option, the code I got from produkey software is giving me error 0xC004E003, the option to activate through phone is absent in slui.exe 4 and system restore option is out too (possibly due to no recovery partition available).

Hi
Win 7 activation is failing due to error code 0xc004e003
I will post the MGAD Tool results at the end of the post, but first I'll explain the full situation (in case it helps)
A friend asked me to sort out their PC as it was stuck continually attempting, and failing, to downloading new Windows updates.
When I took a look, I noticed it had the option to upgrade to Win10. After checking with them, they said they would give it a try so I installed it.
After a bit of playing we noticed the graphics card wasn't fully compatible and would no longer let them play Minecraft (their kids favourite game), so I used the revert to Win7 option.
However, after Win7 had been re-installed it started saying that I needed to be authenticated. Upon trying to I just get the code 0xc004e003 even though (as far as I am aware) it was fully authenticated previously.
The details from MGAD follow:

Hi
The error code  0xC004E003 simply means that the Software Licensing Service reported that license evaluation failed.
Here is what you need to do.1. Press the WINKEY+R to bring up the Run dialog box.2. Type  SLUI 4  in the box and press OK. This will start the Telephone Activation Wizard.3. Select your country in the drop down menu and click the Next Button. Follow the instructions on the screen and call the number that is shown there.
Follow the recorded instructions and when the telephone activation fails, stay on the line and an Activation Representative will answer. Just describe the problem you are experiencing and they will manually activate the system for you.Hope this helps.Thank You for testing Windows 7

A:windows 7 ultimate activation error code 0xC004E003

The installed Product Key is the infamous Lenovo Stolen Key - which was permanently withdraw and blocked by MS before the release of WIndows 7 - and was never valid on any computer.
Even had it been valid, it would only have been so on machines preinstalled with Ultimate by Lenovo.
You motherboard is a retail one, and cannot support any OEM_SLP Key

You need to reformat and reinstall using genuine media and Key.

Hi everyone,

I've just made a fresh windows 7 install on my laptop, but can't activate it, since I get the error code indicated above. Can't activate over phone either since the option is completely absent and slui.exe 4 doesn't work (just shows me the screen to buy a new product key, type a different one or contact microsoft to help resolve the problem). Here is the diagnostic report, hope it helps:

Welcome to our forum TSNKami.

Your system will never activate in the state it is in now.
Your system has a blocked/stolen Lenovo product code.

The way you solve this problem is buy Windows 7 from a proper dealer and installed it with the proper matching COA key.

So I deleted windows 7 off of an old machine and am trying to install it on a new machine. I keep getting error , which I assume is because it still thinks its 'in use' on the old machine.

I am trying to get to phone setup to resolve this but cannot make phone activation appear.

I've tried everything in this thread:
Activate Windows 7 by Phone

I've removed the serial number and tried bringing up slui with no internet but it will not let me activate by phone. Even with no internet, it still gives mt the same error number (how is it even contacting the activation servers with no internet?).

Typing in slui.exe 4 takes me to a screen that lets me buy a new product key or change the key but there is no phone option or " show me other ways to activate" (internet is unplugged).

This is using Windows 7 Pro 64-bit edition. It was bought as an upgrade copy from digital river. I got the key using a keyfinder program from the old machine before wiping it.

Here is my MGA report:

This OEM licence is only valid for an ACER/PACKARD or GATEWAY machine, so you cannot activate it on another computer. Doing so would violate the terms of the licence agreement which is specific to the original machine.

For the new machine, you will need to purchase a retail licence of Windows 7.

I'm a bit confused by your MGADIAG report too. I've never seen two instances of a different product key reported before.

A:New install onto SSD - Activation Error code: 0xC004E003

You cannot use the OEM_SLP Key to activate an installation from a Retail/Download disk - you MUST use the Key from your COA sticker, or Proof of License label.

Change the Key to that, using the link at the bottom of the System properties page - you may need to activate by phone.

Hello everyone. I'm having a few problems with activating my windows 7 professional and I'd greatly appreciate some help. I've done plenty of searches on the web to try some of the methods provided by Microsoft support pages and other sites.

So I guess I will start with my story before providing the diagnostic report that I found in a thread on here. So a friend got an older laptop from his work and gave it to me because I could use it. I'm not sure of everything but I know he told me that he changed out the harddrive to try and get it to work again.

He also put windows 7 professional on the laptop. So great, I get a laptop but I find that it's not activated. I didn't have the CD key, just the product ID, so I used a key finder to retrieve that. After entering in the CD key I find that it appears to work before I get an error code: 0xc004E003.

The description said: "The Software Licensing Service reported that license evaluation failed." I then look online for some solutions and find the MS support pages but none of the methods work, including the automated phone system. I'm using a older lenovo laptop and there is no option for "Use Automated Phone system" after clicking on "Activate Windows now". Only a link to Lenovos' support numbers.

Which I tried and never got a real person after an hour of waiting. So I'm stumped, I'd appreciate any help. Also, one more thing, it says it's going to attempt to automatically activate in ... Read more

I have recently updated my preloaded window 8 to 8.1. However, after the update it does not accept my old window 8 key and requires me to activate again using a product key. Here is the error code: 0xC004C003
My DELL XPS came with a preloaded copy of window 8 and yes it has a window 8 sticker at the back
and was fully activated before I updated to windows  8.1.  And as far as I know, system which comes with preloaded window 8 has its product key injected to the motherboard and 8.1 is a free update for window 8 users.
So why the update does not accept my window 8 key and ask me for a new key ? I know my window 8 key cannot be used for any other system because the key is injected in the motherboard and I don't even know the key myself.
So what can I do now for my Window to be activated again ?
More frustration is that I can't get back to windows 8.
I tried to reset to the factory image by using DELL backup & Recovery software built in the system.
However, after resetting to the factory image it does not accept embedded product key.

A:My activation issue (0xc004e003)

The installation is counterfeit.
This machine was built nearly 18 months before Windows 7 was released, and cannot possibly therefore support the installed OEM_SLP Product Key.
It appears that there is/was also a hacker's Activation Exploit present which appears to have partially broken down as a result of the upgrade/backgrade to Win10 and back.

For which version/edition of Windows is the machine licensed, according to the COA sticker on the case? (it certainly isn't Windows 7 Ultimate!)

Please follow this tutorial and post an MGADiag report - then we can see what the problem is.

http://www.sevenforums.com/windows-updates-activation/234159-windows-genuine-activation-issue-posting-instructions.html

Ignore errors produced when clicking on the Copy button - they simply mean that the tool could not create the backup files for some reason. The data is still copied to the clipboard for pasting to your response.

Please also state the Version and Edition of Windows quoted on your COA sticker (if you have one) on the case of your machine (or inside the battery compartment), but do NOT quote the Key on the sticker!

I recently changed my laptops Hard Drive, when i installed windows 7 on the new Hard drive, i faced this error trying to activate it. I have searched around the web and found actually no solution, I was hoping I can get some help here, I have also checked
many threads in this community and none helped, 

I couldn't phone call Microsoft because I cant find calling option when i try to activte
even if its available (the phone call option) , i dont think it can work because I am in Kurdistan/Iraq, Microsoft has no service here.
this is a data from the Microsoft Genuine Advantage Diagnostic Tool that may be of some help

I am receiving this code 0xc004e003. I run windows 7 on hp pavilion dv6z 2100 purchased in 2010. I called Microsoft and they were able to find my product key on my computer, because the sticker on the back is rubbed off. they told me I needed to contact
hp for further help, my product key is blocked. HP won't do anything because it is out of warranty, and I need to buy a 1 year support contract. Is there anything else I can do besides pay HP?

A:Windows not genuine after doing recovery (error 0xc004e003)

I've still got the validation issue since repairing my windows. Could this have happened because I used the wrong repair tool?

Looks like my ram was causing the blue screens, updating windows completely made it even worse in the end. Maybe the updates increased the amount of ram I was using on startup? I ran a memtest and got a few hundred thousand errors, so i tested every slot and every piece of ram. Turns out my second ram slot is buggered? I put a tested 6+ pass piece of ram in the second slot and ran the test, nothing but errors. This means i just shouldnt use the slot and im good right?

Hello. I've searched high and low for answers, tried many suggestions, but haven't had any luck in resolving.
Symptoms:
1. OneDrive explorer won't display in Modern UI (tries to load, shows splash screen/logo initially, but in a flash, turns black / displays blank/black screen and just hangs there. however, OneDrive does appear in left pane of my Windows Explorer, and in
Charm/PC Settings/Accounts & OneDrive all settings appear correct, ie connected to my Microsoft account, shows Used vs Free cloud storage space available, etc...)
2. When I check onedrive.com, recent files created on my computer and saved to c:\users\[myusername]\OneDrive\etc... are not syncing/uploading automatically as they're supposed to.

My hard drive failed a couple of weeks ago on my dell precision, I ordered a new Silicon Power SSD and installed it but when trying to activate windows using my product key got some error (different from this one) but after trying slui 4 and slmgr /rearm and trying to enter the key again i just get this one. The installation on my HDD before it died was definitely genuine (but i think OEM key?). The only answers i can find to solve this is to contact Microsoft activation phone number but i don't get that option when it asks me, and i cannot find the number online.

I installed upgraded from Windows 7 starter to Windows 7 Home Premium on my samsung n130 netbook. I typed in my key and it says it's invalid. I try to do slui 4 but it doesn't take me to the phone activation, it takes me to the screen with the options, and it doesn't say show me other ways to activate, nothing gives me an option to get it activated, just an option to retype the key, which I've done numerous times. when I type the key, it says error 0xC004E003 and it won't let me activate. I have 2 days left to activate. How do I get it activated. If I need to contact microsoft, I'd prefer to chat online as in instant message, or if not, then email. I got the key from microsoft. it is a windows 7 home premium key because I used a checker to verify it. I also need to talk to microsoft about two keys they gave me that were not home premium keys exactly, they were home premium N edition keys, which don't work with regular home premium software. Any help? Thanks in advance. I appreciate it.

Hi guys,
I have a problem with the windows 10 activation;
3 days ago I purchased this laptop, turned it on and initialized it, windows was active;
yesterday I dot the latest windows updates, including that one that looks like a brand new SO installation with multiple reboots and when it finally ended (after more than 2 hours) my SO was not activated anymore.
When I open "settings" and click on "activate windows" I can see the error 0x8007007b; clicking the Activate button does nothing.
I found some guides googling around but before I start copy/pasting the product key they say I can retrieve using
powershell "(Get-WmiObject -query ?select * from SoftwareLicensingService?).OA3xOriginalProductKey"
I'd like to know if there's a simplier. maybe more specific for this product, solution.

1: when I first booted it got windows 10 home already installed and was activated

This is a Windows 7 Pro device purchased from Dell in 2014.  I tried calling the help line but they bumped me over to a fee for service help line because I am out of warranty.  If they sold me a device with an invalid key shouldn't that be on them to correct regardless? 
Is there a simple fix to this.  It was activated and running fine before this upgrade attempt.  Should I just revert it to 7 Pro and leave it alone?

My new ThinkPad X260 which I ordered during Black Friday was arrived, but I have got an issue when I try to activate the Windows 10 Pro on this machine.

Please advise how to resolve the case! I had managed to contact Lenovo Support and they gave me ticket number for this case: 4037q97. Anyone can give me advise how to proceed with the ticket number provided....?

Guys I need help.
My desktop pc (HP Touchsmart 300) broke down and the technician told me to change the disk. He changed the hard drive and installed again Win7 Home Premium. A fiew days ago, I did a clean Windows install, by downloading the .iso file file from the web (Microsoft's webpage I think). I burned it to a disk and I started the installation. When i asked for a Serial Number, I wrote the key, who was behind the pc. The setup continued, but when I entered the Windows desktop for first time, a message poped up saying "This version of windows is not genique"-something like that. I re-entered the serial but again nothing! What is wrong? Did the hard drive change affected my windows activation?

Thanks,
Dennis

Hello Dennis, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Did you get the ISO file from here below? Microsoft: Windows 7 Direct Download Links
For now, you might see if you may be able to activate by phone instead.

I have T450 came with Windows 7 pro downgraded from Window 10 pro about 4 years before, and I cannot use either Win 10 or Win 7 with this machine anymore after formatting HDD. It was being used with factory installed Win 7pro for a while, then due to the virus related issue, I low level formatted the HDD this year. Since then I was trying to use the facory recovery USB key that came from Lenovo, but the recovery key from Lenovo was actually Win 10 pro instead of Win 7 pro; which was fine if I could activate the Win 10 licese properly.  After Win10 factory recovery was done with the USB key, the activation window says that "The product key used on this PC didn't work with this edition of Windows. You might need to get in touch with the store or company you bought Windows from, enter a different product key, or go to the Store to buy genuine Windows. Error code: 0xC004C060". I contacted Microsoft, and they traced the license key in the BIOS of the laptop, then told me that "The product key in your machine exceeded the maximum quantity of PC for activation. Please contact Lenovo to get proper license key." I contacted Lenovo support, but I could not get any help from the support except telling me that my laptop is now out of warranty. What should I do here? Should I purchase a new Win 10 licese again? Please help.

Hi,

Thanks in advance..

A:Activation of windows 10 home failed

Activation key is embedded in the computer and you do not have access to it. Did you mistakenly enter a key? That is not necessary. The Activation will automatically scan the computer and read your embedded key. When reinstalling win 10 you skip the first question about a product key by choosing I don't have a key. Then activate after the reinstallation is finished.

My windows activation has all of a sudden stopped working.
It states on my desktop, This copy of Windows is not genuine, when i know it's a working key.

I had been getting errors on my pc before, and had to fix them because my pc programs would freeze up and even, ctrl>alt>delete wouldn't work.
Got that all fixed.... but now

I can't activate windows 7 by my pc anywhere, or from phone.

Here is some screencaps of what it looks like:
