Hi parmeetd,

I assume that your Windows copy is legitimate and that you have been using it for a while now before this problem happened. Lately people are getting this problem after doing windows updates, after doing the updates they reboot the system then the problem happens. If this is the case I suggest you boot into Safe Mode, by pressing F8 before the Windows logo, choosing Safe Mode, then login to your account then click NO when a prompt appears. It should then show up System Restore, choose a date when your computer is working before the problem started, hit next, then it should do the process. If everything works out ok, you should be able to get back on our desktop again. Then just disable the Windows Updates option in Control Panel.

You may also opt to call Microsoft Techsupport for this issue so that they can give you a correct activation code. This is applicable if you bought your copy of Windows from a retail store. If your Windows came with your computer which is OEM they may not support.

Worst case scenario is you may to do a clean reinstall of Windows to fix this issue. This entails formatting and deleting the contents of the drive and starting from scratch. You should backup your files first before you do something like this ok?!

Hope this helps!

Peace! :)

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.

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 After one too many activations, Windows complains that your product key is no longer valid or you’ve exceeded the limit.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.
