Laptop and Microsoft Activation

footplate1, Jan 3, 6:22pm
Laptop and Microsoft Activation My ACER has suddenly required me to activate Microsoft. After about five months from the last rebuild. I have tried loading the codes with the original software 0 zilch! Tried registration and skip registration. No success. Starting to think the rebuild shop used a different version - ie not my discs.
Obviously, I will have to go back but, as it is Sunday, I wonder if anyone has struck this and has a solution that avoids waiting for the workshop to reopen?

'the weekend' Doesn't matter. The system is automated, you dial a big string of numbers into your phone, and a computer voice reads back a different string of numbers which you type into windows.

All advice much appreciated System seems to be OK again. May even be faster than before! The laptop is my secondary/travel device but is sometimes used downstairs for social (ie sitting with my wife) reasons. Trying to postpone the day when I must buy a new and lighter model. Having just read about the Mumbai and Bangalore help desks, I was interested in the discussion.
