This is how you activate most software. If you're not comfortable doing it on line then call the number they give you & do it over the phone. Either way you get your software activated. Good luck.

    If he used the key for his they will know it and when you try to use the same key it will deny it. Don't worry though, it wont self destruct :-) Good luck.

0xc004e003


Error Code 0xC004E003 is generally associated to Windows, more specifically Vista, Activation problems. A number of issues could be causing this error, but the most likely culprit is:

  1. If your PC is not currently connected to the Internet, The activation process can't continue since the activation server can't "talk" to your computer and thus cannot complete activation. Verify that you are connected to the Internet and retry.
  2. A corrupt Windows Install, or Pirated copy of the OS might also be to blame. Make sure your copy is GENUINE, and that you have typed in the PRODUCT KEY correctly (if asked to)

Alternatively you can choose to activate by TELEPHONE, which means you will have to CALL the 800 number and input the string of alphanumerics listed when this option is chosen (during the activation process, when activating by phone) to continue the activation process.

I ALREADY HAVE ACTIVATION KEY BUT I FORGOT THAT


Just activate your Windows licence again by either over the Internet or by phone.
If activate by the Internet and you are prevented because you have activated this licence too many times, then go to phone activation and advise the operator that you had to reinstall Wibdows because of a virus infection. The operator will then provide the activation key which you enter as he/she provides the activation key in groups of 5 characters.

I have trouble doing windows vista registration on line after re-booting my system. My labtop has OEM and original version was installed. Can please assist in the registration. My 25 character are as...


Occasionally some Windows Vista user may need to activate his or her copy of Windows Vista operating system through phone activation, such as in situation where the computer is offline without Internet access. Other possible reason to use phone to activate instead of automatic online activation is failure or facing problem to activate Vista online, and user have to fallback to alternative.

For most users, activation process normally starts with attempt to activate Vista online. Online activation is simple and effective way to activate the copy of installed Vista, and when it fails or cannot activate successfully, then user can opt to activate by phone. If you want to skip and bypass online activation and go straight to activate Vista or Windows 7 by phone (i.e. in the case of offline PC with no Internet connection, do these steps:
  1. Click on Start Menu.
  2. Type slui.exe 4 into Start Search, and then press Enter.
  3. Go to step 10.
Normal activation procedures for Windows Vista, including fallback on phone activation:
  1. Click on Start Menu.
  2. Right click on Computer and then click Properties, or open the Control Panel -> System and Maintenance -> System icon.
  3. Scroll down to the Windows activation section and click on the Activate Windows now link.
  4. Click on Activate Windows online now. Note: If you have not entered a product key during installation, the wizard will ask for a genuine serial key. If you uncertain of the serial number key used, or want to change the key used, click on Change product key link.
    And, this step must fails in order to go to phone activation.
  5. If the online activation process, user can continue to attempt to activate using automated phone system by clicking on Use the automated phone system to activate option.
  6. Select your location and click on Next button when prompt to find available phone numbers for activation.
  7. Click Continue if prompted with UAC dialog box, except for those who had disabled UAC.
  8. A local phone number or nearest telephone number will be displayed on screen, together with a set of Installation ID (54 numbers in total - 6 numbers in 9 groups) generated by Windows.
  9. Call the activation phone number.
  10. The call will be answered by automated voice response (AVR) system, that asked caller to speak, or if voice recognition failed, press the phone button to enter the Installation ID listed behind "Step 2?. The numbers needed to enter is a lot (54). If you want simpler way to do it, just speak and enter anything to let automated service fails, and then wait for the call to transfer to activation operator (a real human). Sometimes, if for some reason the Installation ID entered is not accepted by the AVR, your call may be transferred to human operator too. Note: The human operator may ask for the reason that causes requirement of reactivation or activation of Vista. Just tell the truth, e.g. hardware upgrade, transferring to new PC (for non-OEM edition only) and etc.
  11. No matter who you talk to (machine or human CSO), a set of Confirmation ID numbers which consists of 48 digits (6 numbers in 8 groups) will be given if Microsoft believes that your copy of Windows Vista is genuine and legitimate. Write down the Confirmation ID.
  12. Back to Windows Vista, type in the Confirmation ID given by the phone system into the wizard boxes after the "Step 3?, and then click on Next button.
  13. The activation should be successfully done with Activation was successful window appears. Click on Close button to quit.

I lost my Activation Product key. I need it for my activating my Windows Vista Starter. Please help me. Thanks.


There is two steps in installing and activation Windows.
First you need the Product Installation Key to install Windows.
After Windows is installed, Windows will requite Activation. When you boot up Windows will ask you to Activate your Windows program (you are given a 30 days to activate then Windows will lock you out).
You can activate Windows over the Internet or you can activate the Windows license using the phone. If you select the phone method you need to select your country and windows will display the phone number. Then follow the screen instructions.

I want activation key for compaq 6735s windows vista ultimate


One of the options when you activate is to activate by phone. Select this option and call Microsoft. They can provide you with a legal key.
If you have a pirated copy of the software, notify Microsoft of where you bought it and they will give you a free copy.
If this answers your question, I'd appreciate 4 thumbs. I do this for fun and do not get paid.

Activaion KEY NEEDED BAD!!!


Hi,
Unfortunately we can't give you a product key or activation code to activate the operating system, on Microsoft can do this.
The product key should be on a sticker underneath the laptop, use this key to activate the laptop. If it won't allow it you will need to activate by phone, tell Microsoft that you had a hard drive failure and they will activate Windows for you, just give them the code you have posted and they will walk you through the activation by giving you another code to input.
Have a pen and paper ready to write down the code.

ACTIVATION OF OPERATING SYSTEM VISTA


Are you connected to the internet when you are trying to active your vista?. I can also tell you there are two ways to do it. First thing is if you click START and then Right Click on MY COMPUTER and goto the last option PROPERTIES. Once the new windows opens up scroll all the way to the bottom and wait for 5 seconds and it shoud say the status of your activation if you have the incorrect key you should click the Change product Key letters there and it will then ask you to input the right key that should be under your laptop. Once you have that done and have internet after you click next it should be activated. If that didnt work you can always disconnect the computer from the internet and call microsoft directly and they should help you with it since they have the activation code transfer to make it work.Im new on here so if my solution helped you please give some good feedback on my answer thank you
