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.

What is my registration number


A Registration number is when the computer is registered.
Registered with Microsoft, or perhaps eMachines; for example.

To me an erroneous procedure, as it just gives them Personal information about you, which they DID NOT have, and DO NOT need..........

"Oh get great information about Windblows, or use eMachines (Insert any computer maker here), helpful tech information...."

UH, NOT.........
Nothing good comes from it.......

For a computer that is Not registered, it is just Activated.
The Windows program is Activated.
This requires using the Windows Product Key, which is found on the Back of the computer, or up on the side of the computer tower.

Let these X's represent letters, and numbers.
The Windows product key is 25 characters long,

XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX

I used a shredder on my hardrive and I put in the windows 98 number in the registration page and it keeps coming back as an invalid registration number


Are you sure this is a valid number? I mean check the numbers especially for zero and the letter O. They will usually try to put a line through the zero to distinguish it from the letter. Let me know if this works.

Product key


Do you mean the Windows Product Key? Does the label have OEM printed on it? If so then you cannot activate Windows using the product key - you will have to phone MS and explain the situation. If you have the original emachine WIndows Recovery CD then use that to re-install the OS. If you don't then you need to ring MS and ask for an activation key. When you try to activate Windows it should give you the number to ring (depends on what country you are in).
