Activation Fail and no Phone activation possible.

Q: Activation Fail and no Phone activation possible.

Hi Gents,

Hope someone can help me here. I've been using a retail version of Win7 Home premium 64 for about 2 years now with no issues.

During that time I've reinstalled the product possibly 6 or 8 times. Excessive I know but when things start to go wrong I like to start fresh again. Anyway from memory the last 2 times I have had to use phone activation.

A couple of weeks ago I dropped my laptop and killed the HDD. Put in a new one and reinstalled Win. I've just tried to activate with no luck. I went to phone activation and being lazy I typed in my old code I had saved from last time.

Now I can't activate and when I try and open the phone activation box I get a pop up from the toolbar saying the copy isn't genuine and nothing more.

Is there a way to resolve this or have I pissed off the activation so much that I actually have to shell out for a new copy?

Thanks in advance and I'm located in Thailand if that makes a difference.

Preferred Solution: Activation Fail and no Phone activation possible.

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: Activation Fail and no Phone activation possible.

The error indicates mismatched ID's in the license.

Please first try recreating Licensing Store.

Recreate the Licensing Store
Go to Start > All Programs > Accessories
Right-Click on Command Prompt and select Run as Administrator - accept the UAC prompt
Run the following commands in the Command Prompt window, using the Enter key at the end of each

net stop sppsvc
(wait until the service has stopped before entering the following lines)

CD %windir%\ServiceProfiles\NetworkService\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\SoftwareProtectionPlatform
REN tokens.dat tokens.bar
net start sppsvc
slui.exe

After a couple of seconds the Windows Activation dialog will appear.
You may be asked to re-activate and/or re-enter your product key, or Activation may occur automatically.
If you are asked for your Key, use the one on the COA sticker on the machine's case

Reboot and Post back with a new MGADiag report.

(Note: the Line 'CD %win......\SoftwareProtectionPlatform' is all on one line - it may be broken in the Forum listing)

hi ppl,
every 6 months or so, i wipe the hdd and do a clean reinstall of xp.
over the past 2 years - due to several hardware changes, or whatever - i've had to "phone activate" after reloading xp.

yesterday, i did the "6 monthly reinstall" and *surprise surprise* activation was effected successfully automatically online ! no phone needed

would this be a new Micro$$$oft policy

I have an HP probook that had Windows 7 Pro installed on it. The whole hdd somehow got corrupted, I could not even boot from a recovery partition (I think because I shrunk C: and created a D: too and it created a wierd partitioning system). I had to use a Linux live CD to erase all partitions because even my Windows 7 Pro CD could not see the partitions when I got to that part of install. Upon installing the same exact version of Windows on the same exact computer I entered the product code that was under the battery of all stupid places. Then is does not activate and tells me I can activate by phone? huh. So I did everything phone told me and Windows is activated fine... BUT why when I have a valid product key does it fail until I use the phone activation?

A:Why phone activation?

It's a strange one. Generally only occurs when there is zero internet connection. Was the probook definitely connected to the internet at the time you attempted to activate?

A:No phone activation option after new HDD

You don't get an option to telephone activate an OEM_SLP Key.


You need to change the Product Key to the one on the COA sticker on the machine's case (or inside the battery compartment), using the Change Product Key link at the bottom of the System properties page.
You may need to activate by phone.
telephone activation (operator calls)
Click on the Start button
in the Search box, type
SLUI 4
and hit the Enter key
follow the instructions, but when asked which service you require by the telephone ansafone, do NOT reply - this should force an operator to respond, who can deal with you

I am currently running 2 80Gb Intel SSD in Raid 0, due to the fact there is no TRIM support in raid I am having to reinstall about ever 5-6 months to refresh the drives the activation should be smart enough to see I am installing it on the same pc and not annoy me with a phone activation call.

When windows 7 gets native trim support for raid I will have to throw a party or something.

Before my last refresh my average was 343MB/sec, now I am back to a cool 477MB/sec it clearly has to be done

I know Microsoft doesn?t want there product stolen however I don?t want to be annoyed after paying for your product if trim was supported in raid this wouldn?t be necessary.

I just put together my pc, I changed everything but the hard drives and videocard. when I put in my key to activate windows it said my key was being used on a different pc and to call a number if I changed hardware. I called and everything worked fine, my question is am I going to have to do this every time I reinstall windows now? and if I do, next time I call and the system asks how many computers I have used the key on, do I say 2 now or still 1.

Thanks for your time.

Next time, you could uninstall your product key first then continue on to the next phase, or, clean install next time so your key is not registered as 'in use'.

Due to Microsoft's persistent urging, a little curiousity, and the faith that I could recover my system, I upgraded to Windows 10 in June, 2016. It worked great for several weeks, then failed badly. I couldn't boot into regular mode. Research showed that all I had to was start in Safe Mode. When I finally got to the point where the "Restart in Safe Mode" option should have been, I see "Return to Previous Build" instead. I chose that and it reverted back to Windows 7. Windows 7 also didn't work because Windows 10 messed up the partitions. That also prevented me from doing a hard drive Recovery. At this point, I'm starting to think, "**bleep** this is getting to be beyond ridiculous, its a good thing I made Recovery Discs." So I boot the computer with the first of three Recovery DVDs that I made from this computer and it tells me they aren't for this computer (an ongoing miserable failure by many OEM's). HP says its too late to have a working DVD Recovery set mailed to me like they would have before 4+ years went by. So I installed the same version of Windows 7 from a retail DVD. The activation period is over now (I thought it had already activated as everything I've done is proper, legal and legitimate), and my option is to buy a new license. Unbelievable. Will somebody please fix this nightmare.Thanks, Chuck-IT

I have purchased a laptop that came originally with the OEM W7 Home Premium 64.
The previous owner had deleted the recovery partition and installed Ultimate on it which has a key.

I used an official Digital River ISO to create an install disc of Home Premium and validated the original OEM copy's key.

I need to use XP Mode and that is available only for Prof and Ultimate. I was wondering if I can replicate the ISO process and have the key of Ultimate validated by MS, so that I can switch to it.

When I validated the key by phone it used the running the version of W7 to which the key belonged. I am wondering if I can validate the other key even though I do not yet run that version. If not, is there another way to activate while that version is not running?

Thanks.

A:Is activation of W7 via phone possible for a not running version?

You can use Anytime Upgrade to install the Upgrade key you purchase (Anytime Upgrade, full Upgrade, or Full Retail license) - you will need internet access, as it checks validation during the process.

You cannot activate a Key that is not in use.

Hello and thanks for reading this

I installed Retail version Win 7 64 on my old system about a month ago. Then decided to upgrade since I caught the upgrade bug. Installed Win 7 on my new system (new motherboard and CPU). Unfortunately that CPU died because of my installation cruelty, and I bought a new one.

I decided to reinstall Win 7 and start over with the right drivers installed to make sure there were no problems with the new CPU.

Just tried to activate, and it said that my code was blocked by MS. So I called them on the activation number. That failed, and it said that my Win 7 might be a pirated copy I don't do fake software Problem is, there was no option to call anyone to verbally confirm what had happened.

Can someone tell me if this all sounds normal? And, what do I do to activate my Win 7? Do I only have 3 days left, and then my OS stops working???

AS you only had Windows 7 installed for month, that would make it look that way.

Everything is ok until I get the installation ID. If you check the attachment you'll see that it is cut off and I can't see the 9th set of numbers. Therefore I can't phone activate.

Any ideas?

Hi. Earlier today I changed the SATA mode in my computer's bios from IDE to AHCI, having read that it might improve disk performance slightly. The computer then booted fine, but is now requiring reactivation (this surprised me a bit, I thought several pieces of hardware, not just hard disk mode, would have to change before a reactivation).

Anyway, I tried to reactivate online, but this failed and I got a message saying I had to activate by phone if my hardware had changed. So I tried to do so, but then got the error message: "An unspecified error has occurred". Despite this, the activation progressed to the next stage, where a list of locations should have come up, but all I got was an empty box and empty drop down list: When I clicked next, I got the option for a toll phone number (which I really don't fancy, because I have no idea what the toll is and I have to enter and take down 108 characters), but the freephone option says it's not available.

So really I need either the UK Windows 7 x64 activation phone number, or a way round these error messages. Any help much appreciated, thanks.

Hi all,

I have a problem I've been trying to solve and hope someone can help.

I purchased an Acer desktop which came with Vista but as it was around the time of changeover I got a free upgrade to Win7

I was living in Malaysia but left in July. Before I left I got the local computer shop to check and service the computer as it was much cheaper than where I was going to (Japan).

Shortly after arriving in Japan Win7 deactivated. I contacted MS and they say to contact Acer in Malaysia which I did.

They asked for serial numbers and the Win code on the computer. This is where trouble strikes - the code on the computer is for Vista. After about 3 weeks of going back and forth they finally provide a new 20 digit product ID. However this doesn't work so Acer tell me to use the phone registration. This option won't come up for me, even when trying to fiddle with it using slmgr.vbs, slui.exe and other methods.

I have contacted the computer repair shop too and they have basically brushed me off.

So I now turn to you all and hope you might be able to help me out please. Thanks!

Here is the code.

Hi,
I had to change from 32 bit to 64 bit today. After about 5 hours I get a phone call from some foreign guy going on about 'Microsoft Software Warranty'. After about 10 minutes I asked what it would cost and said I didn't want it. Thought it was suspicious the whole time and was googling for info while talking.

I assume this is a scam and if so how on earth would they know I just re-formatted?

So today I realized I'm really a special case lol...

Anyway, I have the following issue. I have a legitimate Windows 8 Pro copy which was installed on my PC before I did a major hardware upgrade (MBO, CPU etc.). When I set everything together, I booted into my Win 8, and of course it was deactivated.

So, what I did next:

- I uninstalled the product key (with slmgr commands) so it wouldn't recognize it's still installed on that PC (if that has something to do with it)
- formatted my HDD in order to have a nice, clean installation
- reinstalled Windows 8
- entered the product key again
- started the Phone Activation

So I did EVERYTHING good, until the phone lady robot asked me on how much computers is this Windows 8 installed, and I somehow managed to press on "2".

Of course, the next thing that happened, phone lady robot told me my licence doesn't support 2 PCs, so I got angry on myself, ended the call and cursed a lot

When I tried to repeat the process, she told me that the activation didn't finish (or something) and that she'll connect me with a call agent.

Today was a holiday in Croatia, so MS support in Croatia was on day off.

So... what do I do? Do I have ANY options left in order to activate my Windows 8?

Can I call MS support in Monday, explain to them what happened and hopefully they'll help me activate my 8?

Thanks

So I did EVERYTHING good, until the phone lady robot asked me on how much computers is this Windows 8 installed, and I somehow managed to press on "2".



YEP! Been there... done that! If I remember correctly, I think that a repeat of my process (and always selecting 1 thereafter) was successful; however, I can't remember if I tried to authenticate (a second time) via the same 800 number or used a different automated location. Anyway, you can try a different automated location, and if that does not work, I am sure MS will be able to help you. Good luck.

I bought windows 7 ultimate license on-line for good price. the seller said only phone activation.

however it did activate by phone. i started wondering why only phone activation.

I looked at licence by slmgr it shows retail channel.

is this legitimate copy and can i activate on-line the next time??

why only phone activation?

I updated the KB971033 and still activated.

A:Bought windows 7 used licence, activation only by phone! is it legit?

You can determine this with certainty by calling MS Customer service. This helps because once they verify it you have a permanent record of that for any reinstalls and they'll task Support to get it activated no matter what. Retail can migrate and reinstall as often as you want as long as it's only on one PC at a time. Phone activation sometimes is required if there's doubt about that, with a series of numbers traded to update the hardware ID associated with the key. When they ask how many PC's its installed upon the only correct answer is "One" after which they take that as permission to deactivate it on any other device which hardware ID had been associated with it.

We saw tons of bad eBay licenses, so I'd confirm its validity now in case it loses activation so you can file for PayPal refund or challenge the charge with your bank. It is a crime to sell phony or pirated software keys, and MS will sometimes award you with a free copy if you cooperate into an investigation where you lose money.

I am trying to get my Windows 7 machine activated after a hard drive change and clean install.

It would not automatically activate online so I did the phone activation, no problem, I get the new conformation ID numbers and am good to go right?

NOT!

I originally upgraded the hard drive and reinstalled Windows and activated it. Windows 7 said it was activated before I tried to do the free upgrade to Windows 10. After I did the upgrade to Windows 10 it said it can't activate do to a blocked key.

I went back and fourth going back to Windows 7 and made sure it was activated and then did the upgrade again and same thing, the key is blocked. I even spoke to a few people at Microsoft and keep getting different So-called" answers and nothing works.

I even had it on Windows 7, 3-4 days saying it was activated before trying the upgrade and same thing the key is blocked.
I have even done multiple clean installs and just tried reverting back to Windows 7 through Windows 10 a few times. Most of (maybe all) the activation's from a clean install I had to do the over the phone and thought it was good to go until trying to upgrade to 10.

But NOW!

I reinstalled 7 again, activated it, now hours later it is saying the key is invalid in Windows 7. I never had this on Windows 7 until now.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Hi there
I recently changed a MOBO from an INTEL based one to one using an AMD PHENOM processor -- W7 didn't want any new activation rather surprisingly. (Broken Mobo and I had a spare ASUS MOBO lying around).

However the first time I switched to using a LAN cable instead of a Wifi USB adapter I got the "Hardware has changed - please activate windows. OK it activated fine -- however seems strange to me that a MOBO change didn't call for any activation (Disks, memory, DVD device etc were canaballized from the old machine) but a simple switch from Wifi to a LAN did. !!! The internal logic of the activation process seems totally illogical and bizarre. (Running W7 x-64 ULTIMATE). !!!

Cheers

after installing a new SSD on my t440s I couldn't activate windows because the laptop did not have the licence key sticker on the back and it was downgraded to 7 from factory.   When i called the phone activation, it told me the 6 sets of numbers are invalid,then I spoke to 2 different but equally useless reps who spoke horrible english. 1 simply told me the numbers are invalid and asks me to wait 2-3hrs for a tech guy to call me back to remote access my system since she couldn't (of course she couldn't, she didn't even ask!) 2nd rep was this vietnamese woman who spoke equally horrible english than the first. Tried to explain to her the same thing as the first but all I can hear are mumblings and mangled english. I told her I can't understand her and she said something like " i can no transfer cone. please cone back back"   **bleep**? took me a while to understand. It took me 30mins to explain to them why I don't have the sticker or why I don't have the recovery cds.later on I finally found 2 softwares to dig up the bios and I found 2 keys, key 1 is labelled windows 7 professional key, key 2 is the windows OEM key. i tried to enter a key (key1) but it was seen as invalid, I tried entering key 2. but it says there is an invalid character so the key becomes 24 characters instead of 25. turns out the N letter is seen as an invalid letter.

Hiya,

I am having a problem with my windows 7 home premium 64bit. I wiped my computer to try and get a new graphic card to work( never got it working, gave up and went back to my old graphic card) Since then I have had to wipe my computer a number of times, I kept having to wipe my computer since the same problem kept happening. Which is that my windows will crash and wont work after about 1-2mins after start up.

I thought it was my disk so I installed it from a usb windows installer and has been runnign fine for about 2 weeks until I was free to do the phone activation of my windows, I phoned up the activation after using my computer for a while then after I phoned and it came up genuine (like normal) I went to get a drink befor doing more work and once getting back to my computer I opened a new tab on firefox it was very slow on the internet so I clsoed my browser and tried to reopen it and but it woulnd't open windows has frozen completely so I pressed the restart button on my case and let it boot up and then it wouldn't let me do anything.

Does anyone have any idea of how come my computer seem to freeze and refuse to work once I use the windows phone activation?

A:Windows wont work after using windows 7 home phone activation

What makes you think it is the activation? Did you go click on "Start Button", right click on "Computer" and left click on "Properties"? When the screen comes up scroll down to the right bottom of the screen and you should see a "Genuine Windows Logo". If it says something different then there is an activation problem.

So a few days ago my computer can't connect to wireless, stuck in Limited mode. Troubleshoot says - "wireless connection doesn't have a valid ip configuration". i've uninstalled the driver, put valid settings from another laptop I have, I've uninstalled Bonjour, i've put netsh commands.. still nada. The USB connection I could use to tether also stopped working. I've tried other wifi connections and they don't work either. The strangest thing is that itunes won't recognize the phone, but windows does and i can go inside the folders.
I have the 169.254.x.x ipconfig forgot the name but like I've read here before it can't get to DHCP.

The laptop is 6 months old lenovo windows 7.

I installed xp using a old cd that i had(just because i havent bought a new xp yest)
I know that this isnt a leagel copy,but i thought that id install it and then i have 30 day to validate it.

bute here comes the problem.

I cant get it validated with the new key.

when i look at the system properties it says oem and dell,and i dont have a dell.
So i think that the cd i used was some kind of coperate version of a dell xp,

now i try to validate it with a key that i know works,that i use at work and have ok to use(its a multi licence key)
But i only get invalid key.

Does the XXXXXX-640-7721335-XXXXX from the system properties have anything to do with the validation?

Cause my com at home has XXXXX-Oem-XXXXXXX-XXXXX.

And if i change that will i be able to activate it?

You have to actualy wipe (zero-sum-fill) the hard drive first before you re-install.
Then, Install with the CD-Key of the copy of XP you have.
But, if anyone else has activated with that cd-key, it won't activate on yours.
So, you'll probably have to buy a new copy of XP.

In fact I went to windows update lastnight and was able to download Media Player 10! Heck, I've been using this setup for 3 years now without a hitch, and the only significant change I made was the harddrive, which I understood wouldn't require re-activation.

So why was it only after redoing drivers for my Intel Pro 100/ VE Onboard Network adapter, that I got hit with the re-activation message? Had no problems with the old drivers for networking, using the onboard Eithernet plug, but the drivers were for a Ethernet PCI card with the same chipset that I had installed and removed awhile back.

A harddrive is THE most significant change. Once you had installed the drivers for your internet connection then rightly so M/S found out you had changed your hard drive.If it's a pirate copy help is out there.Pip

Several months ago, I gave a computer running Win 7 to a troubled friend. I have reason to believe she pawned it and lost it, but cannot get in touch with her to verify this. If I am correct, and if the pawn shop wiped the drive prior to reselling it (as I would imagine they did), then I could sell that copy of Windows or use it on another machine.

Is there any way to determine whether my product key is currently in use on another machine?

A:Is my Win 7 Activation key in use?

If the w7 was installed on the PC at the factory, ex. Dell, eMachines, etc, the key can't be used on another machine in any condition.

I doubt if a pawn shop would go to the trouble of wiping a drive, they don't really care, unless law requires it in some states.

I can't find a way to check to see if the key is in use. One way would be to install and enter the key after installing to see if it will activate.
