In otherwords you are seeing the Activation screen?
No problem!

When Windows is installed on a computer, is assigns hash values to certain major hardware components.

Examples such as;
1 Processor
2) Ram Memory

3) Motherboard, (To be more specific; Motherboard chipset, and BIOS program, and version)

4) Harddrive
5) Graphics chipset

Change any two of these hardware components, and Windows will 'think' it is being stolen.

(Windows: "Hey, this isn't the same computer I was put on originally!")

[Microsoft user's license states One GENUINE copy of Windows per ONE computer.

Microsoft makes one Master disk of the Operating System. From it all GENUINE copies are made, and sold ]

Primer over.

When the activation screen comes up, click on - Call Microsoft
I feel it is better to speak to a real person in case there are problems.

Before calling, have the Serial Number of the computer written down, to give to the nice representative on the phone.

This is in a white Service Tag, on the back of the computer, or up on the side of the computer tower.
S/N = Serial Number

After you click on Call Microsoft, the screen in front of you will have a series of blocks.

The top blocks (6) have number/letters in them.
The bottom (6) blocks do not.

The representative will ask you what you wish to do.


You then read off the number/letters in the first box, to the representative. Speak CLEARLY, and make sure the representative understands each letter/number.

Go to the second box. Do the same. Do this for all of the boxes.

When finished the representative will state to wait one minute.
(More like; Hold On)

The rep will come back, and state letter/numbers to you.
Put your mouse cursor in the first empty box. Left-click once.

Type the letter/numbers you are given.
Make SURE you understand the representative! IF NOT, ask the rep politely to repeat.

After you have filled the first box, the cursor will automatically jump over to the second box.
Type the letter/numbers in.

Same thing for the 3rd through 6th box.

When finished go back through all the boxes, and repeat back to the rep the letter/numbers. Make SURE they are CORRECT!

When you are finished with the last box, there is a period of silence.
You are supposed to know that you have to click on ACTIVATE, at the bottom.

Click on Activate.

That's it! Say goodbye to the nice representative. Your genuine copy of Windows is now Activated again!

{By the way. You have a new Windows Product key now.
The one in the holographic sticker on the computer is no good now }

I have Photoshop CS3 on two PCs, abandoning one and wish to install PS CS3 on a Mac, replacing 2d pc. Can I do this and keep PS3 also on the PC? Same question for Lightroom and the Bridge. Can I share...

No you cannot, because it is not supported when you uninstall it. If you visit What you might want to do is just download another version on it. Copy it onto a flash drive or CD. And then just place into the other PC.

Also you can share digital files between the PC and your Mac, but not programs, because programs are Server-Side installed. So the only way to share a program is to copy the files(Install Files) from one PC to the Mac, and it should work.

    How to activate task manager on my pc

    It can be done easily by editing the registry. I will try to explain in detail. Follow these steps

    1. Check that your PC is virus free. Install Antivirus program if required.
    2. Regisry is enabled. Goto run command from start menu OR Press Win key+R and type 'regedit'. It would show up registry.
    3. If registry is enabled you can edit it.
    4. Open notepad and paste the following four lines

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    6. Choose 'all files' option from 'Save as type'
    7. Now you should have a registry editing patch. Please note that its extension is .reg
    8. Double click the patch to add it to registry and task manager would be enabled.
    9. Alternatively, you can download PROCESS EXPLORER, whichis a replacement of task manager from internet. It works even if the taskmanager is disabled.

    Hope this helps. Let me know if you need any further clarification/ help

    Ok so i want to put a dual-core processor in to my compaq presario sr1620nx 2005... but i dont know if this is possible.... anyone knows if i can or cannot. i need a 2.5 ghz to play SC2 so im desperate...

    The specs for the motherboard used in this computer are here. It's a socket 939 board, which is outdated now and there aren't a lot of processors available. Here's one, but it doesn't get the 2.5 GHz speed you want. So the answer is yes, you can install a dual-core processor, but you probably shouldn't.

    You would be better off to replace both the motherboard and processor together so you can pick from current processors. Here is a typical combo offer with a 3.0 GHz dual-core that is only about $20 more than the processor linked to above.

    The downside to upgrading this way is that you normally can't stop with just the motherboard and processor. Your current memory won't fit on the new board, so that'll need to be replaced. Then you'll need to replace the power supply as well. The supplies used in machines like this Presario don't offer the capacity the new board and processor need for stable operation. And finally, if you're an avid gamer, the built-in video is usually inadequate. You'll be looking at a new video card too.

    At least the case and peripherals would still be useable, so you can put all your new parts into your current box. Unless you want something flashier to go with all the new innards. You'll also need to reinstall Windows, since the current installation probably won't run on the new system. A fresh installation would be the fastest way to get up and running. This means hunting up a Windows CD for the version currently running; at least you can reuse your product key, although you'll almost certainly wind up activating Windows over the phone. (My experience has been that when using the OEM key with such a new system, the Internet activation usually fails. The automated phone system asks you how many computers you're running this copy on, so you can just answer "one", which is the truth.)

    Maybe not what you wanted to hear, but this is the way to get a machine that will do what you are looking for. Thanks for using Fixya!

    I purchased "tasty planet" from reflective entertainment inc but have not received my activation code. i have reaplied for it but still dont have it. keep being told item no:eabzrprdk46cvr3xej937...

    That's great, but why are you asking anyone else than Paypal or Reflective Entertainment what the problem is?  If you want codez this isn't the site.  Patently, PayPal takes a long time to settle for merchants; doublecheck your browser history of the purchase to cc with PayPal as an issue if you still have no code (check y'r spam folder, etc.) and give Reflective a carbon copy, expecting them to make good.  I mean, especially send Reflective a copy of the PayPal screen with personal details redacted (smudged out.) And this ain't a PC Desktop problem, but I'd put it down under Software/Tasty Planet....

    Ntldr missing from Active drive.


    You have not mentioned the Operating system you are using. I am giving you a solution assuming that you are using Win XP.

    There are two ways to fix this issue.
    1. You need to extract this file from the CD and than copy into the root directory.
    2. You can run a repair of the Win XP using the disk.

    The second option is the better and the easy one. I have provided the link below where you have step by step instructions for the same with screen shots.

    Hope this helps.
