    Windows 8 (64-Bit) Activation error! HELP!


    Can't Activate My Windows
    My Windows cannot be activated. I have tried several different methods of activation but none seem to work.
    My computer was Windows 8 pre-installed before purchase. Because of this I literally have no product key. I have checked my email and searched for anything that seems Windows related just to make sure of a product key to be found. Eventually I came across a program that told me my product key. After I found my key, I then tried multiple methods of activation and nothing seemed to have worked. I am running Windows 8 on a 64-bit system <<<If that helps at all. This problem started on the 28th of June and I found out that this could be a hacker attacking my key (using a key-gen and my key being used on another computer) how can I solve this!? any method I will try!

    When you try to activate it online and it fails, there are alternate methods to activate it.

    Use Phone Activation and call Microsoft and tell them the story.

    They should activate it for you.

    Please tell us/me if they did.

    Okay so unfortunately Windows technical support for activation is not open on weekends so I will have to wait another day of random "Activate Windows" pop-ups.
