I get error code 0xC004C008 when trying to Activate

So I had originally Windows 10 on my computer until I kept getting CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT blue screen of deaths so I thought "Why not Install Windows 7 Ultimate again and then reinstall Windows 10" So I did that any now I am getting error code 0xC004C008 whenever I try to activate it.

Here is the other stuff

The Key in use is an MSDN Key from a not-for-resale MSDN account.
Unless you are an MSDN subscriber, you are not entitled to use the Key – and whoever sold it to you was not entitled to do so.
You need to claim an immediate refund from the vendor - do NOT accept the offer of a new key (all they are trying to do is to get past the 45-day claims window or avoid you sending the evidence of their crimes to the authorities)

Advice on Safe Software Shopping (revised 4/10/2011)

The pirates have got VERY good at this over the past few years, as the price of equipment for manufacturing the packages drops, and as factories open in less well-policed countries.

That can't be because other computers in my house use the key and they work just fine. And it is legit.

In that case they are ALL counterfeit.
Although MSDN Keys do have slightly different rules, the general rule is that each machine must have its own unique Key.

MSDN Keys are ONLY valid when used by the owner of the MSDN Subscription - for 'non-production' (i.e. test) purposes.
