Try pushing no. Your windows version hasn't been Activated. Use your activation key when you get booted up. Is this a Windows OS upgrade? A reinstall? It would be helpful if you posted the Make and model of Laptop and the OS you are using.

Im trying to hook up to the internet to my old thinkpad X32 i used a modem didnt work and i noticed that its wireless its at the points when it says activate windows plzzzz help.


When Windows starts asking for it to be activated, some of the functions of the computer are being disabled. What you need to do is to reinstall Windows by using your IBM ThinkPad X32 Recovery Disk. The Recovery Disk for your computer has a pre-registered and pre-activated Windows. Call IBM/Lenovo at 18774536686 to hopefully further widen your options. You might spend $40~$60 to resolve this issue.

I hope this works for you. Kindly reply/comment for further assistance. Good Luck!

Thanks for using Fixya!

All you need to do is activate it.  I've never had office 2007 to work with but it will always say it's not genuine until you activate it.  It's standard procedure to activate it.

Message says activate windows. But i need to be on line to activate windows and i cant get on line till i activate. so how do i activate windows

No, just call Microsoft for the activation code.
Windows activation: (888) 571-2048. You will need your serial number for your REGISTERED windows version.

Activate windows

Activation is done by matching the product keys to the Microsoft database. The only legal way to do this is to purchase a key from Microsoft or purchase a legal copy of windows.

Other than Windows you can run Ubuntu Linux which is very user friendly and free. Go to and get your free copy.
