Windows 7: Windows isn't booting up anymore & CD won't work

Welp whatever number I have isn't working, I tried a bunch of times.

I wouldnt have it any other way.

I think I got it through some online place called River something, whoever did the initial online release. I bought it as a student when 7 came out.

What can I do about getting a new code generated?

I had also paid extra for the official backup DVD and thats what I've been using.

Your retail Product key is good for life.

If it will not you activate (with the robocall or speaking with an agent, if necessary) then open a case with MS Customer Service to validate the key and get it activated one way or another.

They may refer you to Digital River Customer Service, but there will be a resolution as you paid for it and own it for life.

Is it rejecting it when you try to type it in, or is it rejected when you try to activate windows?

Windows key plus pause/break key. Then click advanced system settings. Under the Advanced tab go to startup and recovery settings. In the System failure section make sure "Automatically restart" is NOT checked. Then the next time you get a BSOD write down the info on the screen so you can Google it latter. There are also log files etc you can look at to try and find out why it Blue screened. The Stop code on the actual blue screen is a good place to start though.

Where exactly do I hit windows & pause/break key?

Remember I can't even get past the initial product key registration to finish installih windows.

Well digital river is closed today.

The problem is, it's not the same hard drive ... MS support activation phone number
