    Do you mean a computer with 8.1 on it, or did you buy 8.1 and install it on an existing computer?
    If you have bought an 8.1 computer is it new or used?

    I you bought a legal version of Windows 8.1 there would have been a license key for it that you would use.

    We can only help if you post a diagnostic report. See link my previous post.

    BTW: Activation should be local except for organisations like companies/universities etc..

    But lets have a look anyway.

    Ok, what KIND of shopkeeper? And he gave "a window"...I presume you mean Windows (?) as a gift? Was it already installed or did he give you a disk? Not sure what he meant that HE was going to activate it. If it is the same operating system that came on the laptop (being a Dell) the activation code is often encoded within the laptop itself...you don't have to enter it...it will do it itself. (But not always.) If it is NOT an original Win8 Dell laptop, but had Win8 installed later, you WILL need a product key....an activation key. Those are either part of the purchased product OR you have to purchase one separately. Is the laptop asking for an activation key? What is the laptop doing or telling you? If he installed Windows 8 from a disk that has already been used on another computer then that will be considered as a pirated copy, and you cannot use the original activation code.

    I bought a core i5 laptop ay 60000 rupees and then he opened my laptop in order to install window on it...he also gave me an other disc having all drivers on it it.....
    possibly he forgot to activate the window and same did i at his shop....
    Today i called him on phone and suggested me to take my laptop to his shop for activation via net.
    if it can be done via internet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
