Windows 8 activation trouble

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am having trouble activating windows 8 every time I put in my activation key I get an error saying that activation key has been used. What happened was I formatted my ssd that I had already installed windows 8 on and I reinstalled it but now windows won't activate is there any way that I can fix this?

Have you tried to phone to activate? It's actually not too bad and fully automated. You just have to follow the steps shown in Windows d- tell them the installation ID, say you have installed on one computer. You'll get a confirmation ID to input and you're all set. smile.gif
