    Seems the key has reached it's maximum number of online activations - has it been used on another machine perhaps?

    0xC004C003 The activation server determined the specified product key is in use.

    Try phone activation. Run SLUI 4.

    Where did you get the key for Windows 8 Pro? I'm pretty sure that a home based Dell Inspiron would have come with Windows 8 standard.

    according to DELL SERVICE CENTER, this laptop is DOS BASED system. SELLER INSTALLED THIS WINDOW 8 IN MY LAPTOP. SELLER PROVIDE ME WINDOW 8 KEY WHICH IS GENUINE KEY. FOR THIS I CALL TO MICROSOFT TOLLFREE NO. THEY REPLIED THAT WINDOW 8 PRODUCT KEY IS GENUINE. THEY ALSO TRY TO AVOID SUCH ISSUE, THEY SAYS.. TYPE SLUI 4, SLUI 3 ETC. BUT MY PROBLEM IS NOT YET SOLVED. AT THE TIME OF ENTERING OF PRODUCT KEY WINDOW 8 HAS BEEN ACTIVATE BUT AFTER SOME TIMES IT SHOW AGAIN SHOW ERROR MESSAGE TO ACTIVATE WINDOW 8. MICROSOFT SERVICE CENTER REPLY THAT YOU SHOULD CONTACT TO SELLER, BUT SELLER SAID THAT I HAVE ALREADY PROVIDE YOU A GENUINE WINDOW 8 PRODUCT KEY, SO YOU SHOULD CONTACT TO MICROSOFT,
    ERROR MESSAGE IS 0x004c003

    Is the version of Win8 an OEM or a Retail version? There used to be a difference in licensing with the OEM version where the OEM is obligated to support the OS for a period of time, probably 60 days, don't know if that still applies.

    Must say this is a strange scenario - have never come across a system that activates then automatically deactivates itself - particularly with that error code... try running slmgr -dlv from a command prompt for more info.

    I suspect you may have tampered files... sfc /scannow might help.
