    My windows activation key is not working.


    So i bought this windows 10 key and when i tried to activate it it didn't work, it said it was the wrong code or something like that. I bought an english version of windows and i am using Windows Home N, does that maybe have something to do with it?

    :)

    activate windows 7 oem key

    There is no difference between the OEM disc and the Retail disc with Windows 7. A retail disc will accept a OEM or Retail key, and vise versa.

    If the OEM Key wasn't going to work with the disc you have, it would have stopped you during the install when it first asked you for the key, not during activation.

    What is likely the problem is that, since the OEM version has already been activated once, it is failing activation again. Activate it over the phone using the option given to you on the failed activation screen, and you shouldn't have a problem activating it.

    activate windows 7 oem key

    You cannot activate a retail version of Windows with an OEM key.
    The retail version should have it's own activation key.
    If you just borrowed the Win DVD from someone who is using the key, that won't work with your OEM (OA) key.

    pwned by newtekie. lol My bad.
    It does work in Vista and 7, just not in XP.

    Have you looked on the ASUS website to see if you can re-download the driver/diag disk, or at least everything you need to make one?

    My windows activation key is not working.

    Windows 8.1 pro + WMC key activation

    This worked for me last time with a Win 8 key.

    Install Windows 8.1 and enter KMS key during setup. Once in windows change product key to my Windows 8 key. Go to add features and enter my WMC add-on key. Drink a beer to a job well done.
