Windows 8 Activation fails after 8 months

    Windows 8 Activation fails after 8 months

    I had Windows 8 Professional edition from ASDF India (Association of Software Developers & Faculties). They had provided a KMS Activated version, which after installation, activated Windows 8 automatically. Also to mention that it is a genuine copy, as I had a special password which was provided by them to log in and download windows 8. However, I was not provided any extra Keys.

    After running smoothly for 8 months, today out-of-the-blue a message pops up saying Windows 8 is not activated. The error shows as follows :

    Error : 0x8007232B
    Description : DNS Name does not exist.

    I tried to follow the steps mentioned in this Microsoft Help article Error 0x8007232b or 0x8007007B occurs when you try to activate Windows, but could not solve the error.

    Any help would be very much appreciated! Thanks in advance.

    KMS is not legal activator, that serial number was probably black listed.
