    Upgrading Windows 7 to Windows 8...


    Hello, I'm having a problem where I put my Activation Key in to install Windows 8 and it keep coming up an error saying "We can't connect right now", but my Internet is on and Strong. I'm so disappointing about this!

    You might try activating by phone: Activate Windows 7 by Phone

    Should work for Win8 as well.

    I think Microsoft might not be online.

    Highly doubtful, but possible.

    I am upgrading Windows 8.1 now, but when I get to the page where it says "Do you want to keep personal files or nothing" - but in that page, I got one option saying "nothing", I want to use my personal files. But, my PC's back-up is not working. I need some help!
