Activation Key Already In Use

Posted: 11-04-2007, 06:43 PM
I recently built my own computer and i used vista ultimate 64 bit as my OS.
When i had everything up and running I had driver problems and update errors
so i decided if i did a reinstall it would fix the problem. When i
reinstalled using the same OS i chose clean installation on the same computer
using the same product key. Everything works fine now but now it says i need
to activate my product key because it says, "Product key already in use". I
am at a lost what should I do.

Hello,

the product key is "already in use" by your old installation.
Just activate Windows - over telephone, if necessary. The activation process
will work fast and shouldn't be a problem.

Greetings,

Using the phone service helped for me (had the same problem).
Lots of number dialing, but it works

Using the phone service helped for me (had the same problem). It took about 6
minutes to complete.

Telephone activation worked.
Its all automatic. Im Icelandic calling from Iceland. I had to call to an
Norwegan number an listen to a Norwegan computer voice.
It´s similar for a Brit calling to Scotland and listen to a Scotish that´s
never been outside Glascow. The activation work ed at first try.
So believe me, this is the solution to the "activation key already in use"
if you´ve done something with your computer, and suddenly Vista starts
behaving like it was stolen.

It does not work. -_- All I see is an empty line where there should b
number codes. My computer was working just fine yesterday. Now all
have is my product key that does not seem to work. All it says is tha
your product key is already in use (by the same computer of course -_-
Phone activation seems to be only option but without the number code i
seems Windows has shut me out of my own computer. :cry
