    Have you tried visiting windows update and applying the latest service pack for your system....That might solve the notification problem....

    You might have to validate as well as activate: see here.

Activate windows

If it says that your windows is not means you've been running it with the 30 days trial ..and now you have to download and install the activation for it ..You can see if there are activators available on Microsoft site ..and get one ...(it requires payment ) ..or try a "free" one from a torrent site ..but there are no warranties it will work proper or so ..
Anyway advice is to reinstall it by running the recovery partition or disk first ..and after that activate it ..or a image with a windows already activated and burn a disk and install it after that ..

Asking for activation key

Microsoft wants you to register your software with them, they will then give you the activation key. You should find your are given the option to do this. If you have reinstalled your vista then microsoft have locked it down to only one activation via the web. This means you will need to give Microsoft a call for them to give you a activation code.

My computer turns on but will not let me log on to windows.. a small window comes up before opening wimdows"windows product activation. this copy of windows must be activated with microsoft before you can...

Click "yes, I want to activate" -- a telephone-number should be displayed. Telephone Microsoft, at that number, and they will help you "activate" your copy of Windows.

The only other option is to take the original "System Restore" CD-ROM disks, and 25-character Microsoft product-key, and reinstall Windows.

Computer asking for activation key, power failure at home

if its vista or xp ur activating

When you try to log in, you should be presented with a window that gives you four options:
1. Activate Windows online now --> (this will try to activate with whatever key you already have installed)
2. Buy a new product key online --> (self-explanatory)
3. Retype your product key --> (this is the same as "Change product key" and will give you the opportunity to enter a new key if you want to activate with a key that's not yet installed)
4. Show me other ways to activate --> (this is will give you two more options
a. Use my modem to connect directly to the activation service
b. Use the automated phone system
I think you'll want to choose the 4th one in the first window and the 2nd on in the next window. It will give you a new installation ID, so you can phone activate.

Windows is activated but will not log me on

There seems to be nothing else we can do other than reformatting your hard drive and reinstalling your operating system since you cannot go to safe mode and do system restore. The problem is with the OS so it needs to be reinstalled. Hope this helps. Thank you.

Windows activation problem

if you alter any major hardware, then windows may need to be re activated, when you click the activate button, make sure you are connected to the internet and click activate online and it will do it automatically.
