    That's a very unusual request indeed...

    Check the edition of your key with Showkey first. Post the full description please,

    You have a Win 8.1 RTM CoreN Volume:GVLK

    Volume keys are for organisations, not for private users, and definitely not for reselling.

    Which means it was illegally activated (via KMS)

    Take this info to the seller and get a genuine key or your money back.

    The way KMS activation works, is that your PC is activated for a certain time, then it has to re-activate again - shortly before that time it notifies you when you need to connect to the KMS server to get another period of activation - it's not permanent like OEM and retail.

    Microsoft take down and or block illegal KMS servers when they find them. If your PC was setup to activate via one of those it will time out and fail to activate. You will then get ever increasing reduced functionality until it's activated again. Selling a PC using KMS or installing an OS using KMS to consumers is illegal. Plain and simple, you were ripped off. It they won't give you your money back tell them you will be reporting them to Microsoft. If that still doesn't get you any satisfaction actually do it. Call Microsoft and report them. I've heard that Microsoft will sometimes make you legal for free just for reporting fraud like that. Don't just let them reactivate it again, as it will likely just time out again. You want a full legal Retail product code. That's what you paid for originally, I assume you did didn't you?
