Windows 7: Activating Problem

Activating Problem

Hey guys,
So, I bought this new computer and it came with Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bits, with 30 days of activation.

Now, I want to activate it and I have a MSDN account, wich provides original keys for microsoft products.

The problem is, even if I get one of those keys, my windows 7 says it is not valid.

Any guess on how to fix it?

I tried the keys for x64.

Is there a sticker on your computer that says windows 7 with a 25 digit number on it?

No as I didn't buy any OP to my computer because I had those MSDN keys.

He just installed it so I could activate it.

But for now I really don't know why its not accepting the keys.

No idea, its probably a warez don't know..

But the windows says :"You have 26 days to activate it"

So I can use it for around 26 days (as I already used 4)

If you have an MSDN account, I suggest you download a fresh, legal copy and make your own DVD. Then install it from scratch.

I would have to format it, and I don't want to do it as I already installed over 70GB on my comp.



Its in portuguese but I think you can understand it.

If you can ask the things you wish me to traslate.

It's very possible that you running a pirate copy of windows and therefore this forum cannot and will not assist you.

But can't a pirate version of windows become a original one if I have a valid key? As microsoft would just give me a key if I buy it?
