Changed hard drive can not get product key code to activate windows


When you put the product key in, do you get back an error with a phone number? If so call the phone number and explain you have changed the hardware in the computer. They should provide you with a new validation code.
If not, there is a choice for over the phone registration. Use this choice call the phone number. You will need to imput the code on your screen. An operator should come on at the end. Explain the hardware change to the operator and you should get a new validation code.

Hope this helps

NEED KEY


If you are referring to your Windows licence key, then go to http://windows.microsoft.com/en-GB/windows/help/genuine/product-key and use the Microsoft Product tool which will guide you through the process to purchase a new product licence code.

If you are reinstalling the exact same version of Windows on the exact same computer / hardware where it had previously been activated, then you should be able to contact the Microsoft Activation Centre by telephone and be guided through the process of re-activating your software.

You missunderstood my Question.I am searching for a crack code to put Windows 7 on my Computer which is a Medion(Brand)


This is not possible. Windows 7 requires product activation and verifies any code, it requires a genuine product key to activate successfully, if you do use a code that is not legal, future windows updates will detect this and will restrict access to Windows 7 and inform you that you are using non-genuine windows license and wont get access to your desktop eventually. Using crack codes is illegal which you probably know.

You will have to phone Microsoft - sorry it's annoying I know. There is a phone number to call once the activation fails for the fist time.
It shouldn't take you long, and I don't expect you will have any issues activating Windows over the phone.

Presumably Windows needs to be reactivated. That is why you are getting the prompt. Windows has an approximate of 3 windows activations, which will automatically go through via the internet. If any hardware changes are detected in the computer, this changes the ID codes in the computer. Follow the telephone prompts for activation. Solution is activate over the telephone rather then the internet. The correct windows license code is on the rear of the computer.

Windows xp activation code


How to Activate Windows XP in 5 Minutes or Less
Having rebuilt, tested, and reloaded hundreds of computers, I’ve become keenly aware of one of the unavoidable speedbumps during setup — Windows XP’s product activation. After one too many activations, Windows complains that your product key is no longer valid or you’ve exceeded the limit. To keep Windows on the up-and-up (and stay atop the seemingly endless flood of security patches), you’ll have to activate once more with Microsoft. Here are some time-tested tips that will get you through the mandatory process in five minutes or less.

Try Internet Activation First

If you have an internet connection when activating Windows, attempt to use the online route first. In the Windows Product Activation Wizard, choose “Yes, lets activate Windows over the internet now”, followed by “No, do not register with Microsoft”. You may receive a friendly “Thank you!” and your copy of Windows will be good to go.
If internet activation fails and the Wizard complains about “too many activations” or an “incorrect product key”, you still have the option of calling Microsoft’s toll free number to activate Windows. As long as the Wizard doesn’t report “invalid product key,” options are still open. An “invalid” (not “incorrect,” mind you) key is one reported or detected as pirated, so you’ll have to find some other way to make your software go.

Phone Activation

Activating Windows via phone is about as enjoyable as a trip to the dentist, but knowing exactly which buttons to push and the right words to say can help cut your time in half and get you the necessary code.
If your online activation from above failed, click the Telephone button to generate an Installation ID, which you’ll read off to a customer service representative shortly. Call the number for your appropriate country, and you’ll enter into a phone menu system which would like nothing more than for you to activate by reading the numbers onscreen. The software behind the menu, however, does the same checking as the online activation method — meaning if your online activation failed, so too will the automated phone activation. Press 0 on the phone keypad when asked if you are calling to activate Windows XP (the first opportunity you are prompted for input). Like many newer phone menus, it will respond “I see that you’d like to transfer to a customer service representative”, and subsequently try to convince you to go back to the automated system. Ignore the pre-recorded woman’s somewhat rude request to go back, and press 1 to to talk to a human.
After a short delay and the distinct possibility of listening to some poorly chosen music, a representative will ask for either the first six digits of your Installation ID, or the full set. (The first six digits of the Installation ID are the only real keys to generating a Confirmation ID, however the reps more often than not ask you to read off the rest of the group. The rest of the numbers are encoded values detailing some very basic hardware details about your computer.)
If asked “Is this the first time you’re activating Windows?”, say yes. If you say no, the representative will ask for an explanation as to why you’re re-activating Windows.
If asked “Did you purchase the software from a retail store?”, say “It came pre-installed with my computer.”
As a final time-kill (their system sometimes takes a minute to generate Confirmation IDs on days with a particularly heavy load), you may be asked for your Product Key (Windows serial number).
After you’ve given them the necessary information, the representative will read the Confirmation ID to you, which you can simply type into the provided fields. Using these methods, it takes about 4 minutes to activate Windows on average.
