My hp pavilion 522a i cant log in to it because it keeps coming up with this copy of windows must be activated with microsoft before you can log on. do you want to activate it no. and no mater what i do it...


You need to activate it, no way around it. When installed you have 30 days to activate it or it won't let you log on.

There should be a a choice to activate and it will only let you go to a activation window. You can do it over the net in a few seconds. After it is done it should work normally. If it is a valid installation you will click a few buttons and you are done. If there is a issue with a valid serial number ie your buddy gave you a copy then you won't be able to activate it (easily anyway) and need to get a new copy to install.
You may need to log on on under administrator before it takes you to the activation stuff but that depends on the windows version and so on.

Once you get it activated you won't forget and the next new computer you will probably get it activated after it runs for a few minutes to avoid this again. It's annoying, it's Windows! ;-]

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 cant activate my computer my computer page turned black its asking me to activate


Try activating over the phone, in the activation page there should eb activate by phone, select that and then once in there select your region. It should give you a number to give the automated phone system if you have already entered your CD key. If you have not entered your CD key then you Just need an active internet connection, enter that key and your information in and wait a few seconds for activation.

Product key number


First, when the operating system was installed, the product key was installed.

To activate windows, you click activate and it should not ask for the key.

If it is only asking because to are trying to transfer files, then don't transfer them, copy then to a disk or a memory drive,flash drive and transfer them.

If the pc is activated, --you bought it new, and activated it, just because
you are trying to transfer ,it should not ask, something is wrong,
maybe the old computer has a hacked version of windows and the new windows will see this.

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.

I cant log on to my system, it is asking 4 updation of vista


When you try to activate vista, Microsoft checks if the 25 character code from the vista cd case was submitted before by someone.
If you bought the windows so it is genuine then obviously noone has submitted the key before, so they accept it, and send back the confirmation ID. So that is where you get it from.

Since you do not have internet, you probably have to do the phone way of activation. So when windows prompts you for activation choose

"Use the automated phone system to activate"

This gets you the phone number related to your area. Select your nearest location and click next.

Click continue for UAC support.

Then you get the local phone number and a set of numbers generated by windows which you will need during the phone call.

Call the activation phone number that it gave you, it will be a machine voice on the phone asking you to repeat the numbers that windows gave you or type them into your phone via the buttons. Do one of the two.

The automated service then gives you the confirmation ID. Make sure you have paper and pen ready, write the numbers down! (should the activation be NOT successfull, do not hang up, you will be transferred to an operator).

If it worked, and the automated service gave you a confirmatino ID, then type the confirmation ID into your vista activation screen, where it asks for it.

Then you get the activation was successfull window and you are done!!:)

If you are unsure about the whole process, then just get so far to call the number, and fail at the activation, stay on the line and wait for the operator, they will help you with it, just explain the situation.

If you have any more questions, please let me know, will gladly help.

Let me know if this worked and if it helped, please rate me. :)
