Product Key invalid???

I just ordered 7 for my Acer Aspire 4530 when it asks for a product key it says the key is invalid I checked it at least 6-7 times and its typed right. Do I need to buy a new product key? If so how much? If not how do I get the product key working.

note: I tried clicking the automatic activation both checked and unchecked it didn't help.

Probably should call up the reseller who sold you the product key. Then call up Microsoft.

I didn't order just the key I ordered a 7 disc and the key that came with it is the one I'm using. Where can I find Microsoft's number I couldn't locate it on their site.

Have you tried using the "phone option" and followed the instructions of the "robot lady" or whatever they call her

To Activate by Phone -
Open the Start Menu, and type slui.exe and press Enter.
If prompted by UAC, click on Yes.

Click on the drop down menu and select the nearest location to you for a toll free number to call, then click on the Next button.

A local phone number should apear under the section with a set of installation ID numbers generated by Windows and displayed on your screen

Call the activation phone number

The activation line will be automated, so you will be asked to enter or speak the installation ID numbers displayed on your screen into the phone
