A product key number can only be activated on 3 computers at the same time if it is one that came with a retail Family Pack copy of Windows 7, you may have to do a phone activation if you have activated it often in a short period.

See if it is helps Troubleshoot activation problems

W7 home premium 32bit/W7HP 64bit/w10 tp insider ring

Hi Pete,
according to HP website that comp came with W8.1, did they give you W7 disks.

Can you run the Mxdiag tool from this forum.


If this is the comp you refferred to in a previous post then there is only a W8 sticker no code

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit sp1

Have you checked that you actually used the right letters & numbers in the activation code. Sometimes a letter or number can easily be mistaken, so re check with a magnifying glass the you have not made a mistake. Also sometimes the code sticker can get damaged or smudged making it very hard to read.
