If it is after a reboot, then you do not need the license key. What you do is reboot and at bootup press F8. From there select "Last Good Boot up". And you would then reboot properly.
Or if you have reinstalled the Windows, then yes it will ask for license key or the Serial Number. And if you do not have the proper Serial Number, then you can not finish installation of Windows. Sorry to inform you but the serial number is a must for installation.

How to activate windows 7?


Hello

If you have installed Windows 7 but you don\'t have a "product key" which is 5 blocks of 5 characters each separated by a hyphen. This is usually found on the packaging of the disk when you bought it, or if it was a download then the key would have been emailed to you separately. If the computer came with Windows 7 installed on it then there will be a sticker on the computer somewhere (bottom for a laptop, side of case for a tower, etc) which will have this "product key" printed on it. If you cannot read the key you need to contact the builder of the machine with its serial number and full details of the machine and he should be able to give you the key.

If you have the key in some place then make a note of it, click on the Start button, right click on My Computer, and click Properties. Near the bottom of the page is a section on the activation status of your computer. If it is activated, it will say so, if it isn\'t there will be a link to go to the activation wizard from which you an follow the instructions to activate your product,

If you have none of these things then I would be very suspicious of the origin of your disk/programme, and I would think that it is a pirated copy.Please remember that you cannot own Windows of any sort. All you do is obtain a licence to use the product on a single computer - it will tell you if you have bought multiple licences - very unlikely - Using a licence on more than one computer is illegal, it constitutes software piracy and contravention of intellectual property rights.

I will gladly help people activate a Windows product but only when they have their own product key. It sounds as if you haven\'t got one.

Hope this clarifies the situation for you.

Cheers

I am using windows 8 professional and i need an activator for it


When you say activator I am assuming that you mean a genuine licence key. If that is the case then you need to purchase a licence key for the operating system that you are running

NEED KEY


If you are referring to your Windows licence key, then go to http://windows.microsoft.com/en-GB/windows/help/genuine/product-key and use the Microsoft Product tool which will guide you through the process to purchase a new product licence code.

If you are reinstalling the exact same version of Windows on the exact same computer / hardware where it had previously been activated, then you should be able to contact the Microsoft Activation Centre by telephone and be guided through the process of re-activating your software.

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.

A problem occurred when windows tried to activate. Error Code 0xC004F063. the Software Licensing servies reported that the computer BIOS is missing a required license.


I can tell you why you are getting this error. How to fix it depends on the reason you are getting this error.
Windows software licensing means that a copy of Windows is only valid for a Single PC. As part of the installation process the Licence key is linked to the motherboard of the PC.
The error is telling you that the Licence key you have for Windows has been activated and linked to a specific Computer B IOS. You can re-activate it on that computer, you cannot install it on another computer.
There are 3 reasons you can be getting this error
  • You have changed the motherboard or the BIOS chip in your machine and you are re-installing Windows. The Licence will not be accepted and this breaks MS licensing agreement.
  • You are trying to re-use an existing Windows Licence on a different machine - Not allowed using a OEM (operator installed) version of Windows.
  • You have reinstalled Windows on your machine using a different installation disc - this can cause confusion when re-installing an OEM version of the software. e.g. Dell branded OEM Windows will only install to Dell machines.
Assuming the licence is valid for the machine and the Motherboard you need to Contact your machine provider to get a valid installation disc - they may well charge for this service.

Usually occurs when using a copied vista disc to install even when putting in own licence key

Try this:
Click the Start icon (Windows ball in the bottom left of screen)
Click Computer then Sytem properties
In windows activation, click change product key
Enter your ORIGINAL product key

see if that works

Reset my acer aspire 6920 to factory settings


This is a tried and tested way to recover it takes quite long but here goes: (remember to backup all your documents first)

First you will need your Windows Vista Home Premium licence key the easiest way is to boot to safe mode using F8 then use a U3 stick USB drive with this U3 WinkeyFinder installed to find and save your Genuine Licence and also backup your Windows Activation file you will need this for later.

1.Install your Windows Vista Home SP1 operating system using the normal method with your install CD use you Genuine Key found using WinKey. Then restore you activation file using Winkey on the U3 drive.

2. Dowload the Windows Vista SP2 Patch CD from the Windows Website.

3. Reload all you drivers using this excellent Aspire 6920 recovery CD from WinGuides. It will cost you £10.

All done. if you dont have a Windows Vista SP1 Install CD then you will also have to download one which you can do legally as you already have a Genuine Licence if not check using this MGA Tool

Hope this helps please rate !
