I kreep getting a message to activate windows but when i enter my key no. it says key invalid


This is usually the case when you have a version different from the version you got with your computer, or if you have a pirated version of windows.
If you can't get your windows to work I recommend downloading Windows Activator by Daz to activate your windows.

Hi,
Windows thing you have used an invalid key to activate you copy of windows. You need to buy a valid key to activate you copy of windows. Just try clicking the message and it will explain what you need to do.

DdI bought a pc without a hard drive.When i replaced the hard drive, the screen then told me i had to activate windows.Do i need to purchase software for that?


Maybe. This depends on Microsoft's view of your product key. First attempt to let Microsoft activate Windows over the network connection (if the computer is on a wide-area network). If it isn't able to activate, you should call Microsoft's activation: (888) 571-2048 . (A set of windows should come up to walk you through the activation over the phone.)

Activation checks if the same product key is being used by one (and only one) computer. It also notes if the computer has undergone major changes - and is a new computer by Microsoft's viewpoint. If you have a valid product key (not on any working computer) but have a new computer, you should be able to get it activated without paying for any new software. However, if Microsoft says you have an invalid license, you may have to buy a product key.

Please note: activation with Windows 7 can be a pain if a false "invalid or pirated software" conclusion is made by the Microsoft computer. The Microsoft staff can walk you through the fix - I found it online back when I was upgrading to Win7 but have lost the link. (WinXP -> Win7 at the time)

Activation is required to keep Windows working normally. Without that, Windows Updates will be unavailable and you will eventually get a weird background with regular "not a valid copy of Windows" messages.

I hope this helps.

Wont boot up,black screen.message on screen says,invalid partitio


When you power up your computer, the system examines the master partition table to determine what volume to use to boot up the operating system, and detected invalid information within it. This is caused by an incorrect or missing active partition.
To resolve this issue, consider the following steps:
  • Boot up the computer with a Microsoft Windows 98 boot up disk or Windows XP recovery console. Select the correct bootup device before you do that.
  • At the DOS command prompt, type in: fdisk
  • Question - Do you wish to enlarge large disk support (Y/N) ?
  • Enter: Y
  • Now to check for active partition, enter: 2
  • Look under the Status column. The active partition is usually assigned to the drive which contains your operating system.
  • If there's no active partition set, enter the number of the partition to make active
This must solve your problem.

How can the product key be wrong??


I would be extremely surprised if this turned out to be a valid copy of XP. Shrink wrap is easy to do. Someone has already used your product key which Microsoft has now registered to a different computer.

And yes, when you submit it the message is that it is invalid which means already in use by another computer.

Microsoft never gives the error message "this product code is already in use". They only say it is invalid.

I've installed XP tons of time and even had a few times where the license belonged to another computer. When that happened, the invalid error message is what I got.

I'll make another guess and say you did not buy XP from a computer store, but instead from an individual. A reputable computer store should be able to help you with your problem if you bought from one.
