Windows 7: Windows 7 phone activation menu cut off.

Windows 7 phone activation menu cut off.

I have a very odd problem that I really need help with. After upgrading several components of my PC, my Windows 7 Home Premium needs reactivation. Unfortunately since it would appear that I've used up my 'available' activations I need to do the phone activation method.

Everything is ok until I get the installation ID. If you check the attachment you'll see that it is cut off and I can't see the 9th set of numbers. Therefore I can't phone activate.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

It was going so nicely till it got to 'contacting' tech support stage. Its as if no one is in and the phone keeps ringing (Was forwarded there from the phone activation help.)

If I can just figure out why I can't see the 9th set of numbers, I'd manage the rest just fine. Can't imagine why it's doing this.

Try changing the resolution and/or dpi

If that does not work keep trying the phone, they probalby work business hours, of some country.

DPI Display Size Settings - Change

Screen Resolution - Display Settings

Alas I already considered that and tried it. The problem of menu cut off is still there regardless of monitor rez.

Try DPI, that will solve it, I hope.

The phone activation system asks for 9 sets, and if it wasn't because of the black markings I placed to cover the numbers, the cut of would be far clearer, it partially cuts off a number.

The DPI should work, did you try that. Not the same as resolution.
