You should be offered a phone number to call when activation fails.

Call and speak with a MS agent to find out why your key isn't being accepted.

If it asks to activate does it give you other options to activate? If so you can go to activate by pgone, call a toll free number and follow the voice prompts. You will have to enter a set of 8 numbers which your pc will give you and they will give you a set of 8 numbers which you will enter on your pc.

When you get the message that the product key is unrecognized, double check the key that you typed in, then just click the button to continue. If activation fails you should be given options to resolve the matter.

I suppose you are entering the correct key, some letters or numbers might look alike.
