Product key

I have installed w7 and when I enter the product key it says "invalid product key" Its not invalid I paid for it and have quadruple checked the number and it still says invalid. I need this done tonight cause I have a test due tomorrow and I will take a big hit on my grade if I don't get it done..............................

Welcome ragcchunt There is an option of NOT entering the product Key during the install, that will give you a 30 day trail period of Win7. Then you can work out the activation problem over the next 30 days
