Cant Activate Windows 7

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter

Hey guys.
So I bought new CPU and Mobo 2 days ago.And well to ensure i get best preformance i decided to reinstall windows 7,
Usualy it gives 30days to activate and since cd key times are used and only way to activated is with phone im used to activate in last 5 days.
The problem is that it shows Windows Activation Not Available and wont give me option to activate it.
Each time i open paint or control panle it drops out that windows is not genuine <.<<br />
So any suggestions what to do cuz i realy dont wana reinstall PC again since installing games takes 2 days for me .....

a very interesting problem. looks like perhaps your install is bugged a little.
You could try opening up a command promt and entering "slmgr -rearm" (without quotes) and report back

try running System file checker
open the command promt and enter: sfc /scannow
It definitely looks like your installation is corrupted
If the SFC can't find/fix your issue i would advise you to check your installation media and reinstall.

glad you got it working wink.gif
I know how excruciating it can be to install games.
If i was to lose my steam folder it would probably take at least a week for me to download most of it......

Try a system restore before this activation issue occurred.

If still a no go, contact MS at 1-800-936-5700. They provide free support for activation issues.
