Windows 8 began to harass for activation, but does not turn on

I bought and installed win8 on my desktop 1 year ago. Because about 1 month ago it will periodically suspend any program I'm running with a screen that says:

Activate Windows

Windows cannot enable right now. Try to activate windows later. If the problem persists, please contact Microsoft customer online to activate Windows. »

Then I click the Activate button. A few small points of spins in a circle, THEN nothing IS is PAST. I click on Contact Microsoft Customer Service and Support online and nothing DON'T get PAST. I have it EVERY TIME I AM being HARASSED BY THIS SCREEN. So I just click on the top left corner of the screen to remove it and continue with what I'm doing BUT IT ALWAYS COMES BACK.

My internet connection is fine.

When searching online I discovered that you can run the phone activation by running slui.exe 4 so I do. After you have selected UK as my country of residence, this error "an error has occurred. Alternatively, you can contact Microsoft by phone to help solve this problem. " When I close this error box activation of the window by window phone appears and tells me what phone number to call, and gives it me the numbers to provide when asked to step 2 of the process: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9. This unsurprisingly DOES NOT WORK WHEN I GET IT on THE PHONE.


I want to talk with a man on the phone. Despite the various messages appear telling me IT IS No. WAY TO TALK to someone to SORT THIS OUT.

I upgraded from xp for win8 and it was without a doubt the system of exploitation of bugs mounted more unstable I've ever used (and I've used windows ME)




You can contact the Microsoft Phone activation service and check if you are able to get your copy of active Windows.

  • After a clean install of Windows Vista, Intel Wifi card is installed and activated, but does not detect the network.

    Wireless card not working after a clean install of Windows Vista

    I did a clean install of Windows Vista Home Premium on my HP Pavilion of 32 bits. I've completely updated Windows via Service Pack 2. Given that the clean install, my wireless card, Intel (r) Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN, was not able to detect all the networks. The Wifi card is listed under NICs as being installed and activated. the hardware on my laptop Wifi switch is set on "on" and the light is blue, indicating that the card is working.

    I can connect to the internet if I connect physically my computer to the modem with an ethernet cable wireless, so the modem isn't the problem. Other computers can connect to the wireless modem, so my Wifi modem functionality is not the problem. The problem with my computer.

    I tried to uninstall the Intel driver and reboot my computer with the generic driver. Install the driver generic, but my wireless card has not always worked. I then ran an update of windows, nothing helps.

    I tried to install the "Intel® PRO /? Wireless and WiFi Link"drivers for Windows Vista (32-bit the latest version and the previous version 32-bit) for the Intel® Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN directly from the Intel Web site at The map didn't always work with a driver.

    In addition to the pilots, I also downloaded a tool of diagnosis of Intel (Intel® PROSet /?) Utility of WiFi wireless connection for Windows Vista 32 -? Bit). Said diagnostic tool the WiFi card is not installed or enabled, however, Device Manager maintains that he is also installed and active.

    Is there a problem that causes Device Manager to say that all is well with the card, but does not map to realize that they diminish the radio signals? Everything's fine, diagnostic, it just does not detect networks around him. Help, please.


    The on/off switch actually works?

    Since it is an internal adapter to ensure it is enabled in the settings of configuration/F2 (BIOS/CMOS) often like you

    Have you tried the computer on other WiFi networks? You had a WiFi type problem before the

    Your router could be suspicious here, you have successfully updated its firmware as a possible solution? And I would like to
    Update your WiFi drivers on computers. How you are positioned in the router? Are there
    obstacles in the path?

    Actually try updating your driver and disabling the network logon.

    Control Panel - network - write down of the brand and the model of the Wifi - double click top - tab of the driver - write
    version - click the driver update (cannot do something that MS is far behind the pilots of certification). Then
    Right click on the Wifi device and UNINSTALL - Reboot - it will refresh the driver stack.

    Look at the sites of the manufacturer for drivers - and the manufacturer of the device manually.

    How to install a device driver in Vista Device Manager

    Download - SAVE - go where you put it - right click – RUN AS ADMIN.

    You can download several at once however restart after the installation of each of them.

    After watching the system manufacturer, you can check the manufacturer of the device an even newer version. (The
    manufacturer of system become your backup policies).

    Repeat for network (NIC) card and is a good time to get the other updated drivers as Vista like
    updated drivers.

    I would also turn off auto update for the drivers. If the updates Windows suggests a just HIDE as they
    are almost always old, and you can search drivers manually as needed.

    Make sure you know the details of connection to your wireless router - SSID and password.

    You lose connection when you do and have to redo your logon.

    Control Panel - Network & Sharing Center - right, click Customize - page set of network locations.
    lower left click on merge or delete network locations - REMOVE all instances of your network (and the
    others you don't use anymore) - REBOOT. Start - Connect To log on to the network.

  • Windows Update says it is looking for updates but does not update?

    Windows 7 on my PC has the appearance of looking for updates en but never actually implemented to date.

    All the updates of Windows started failing on 26/09/15 and the last attempt known to day anything has 22/02/16.  My computer seems to work very well, but I know that's NOT guarantee that no updates have occurred in the month!

    I ran to the diagnosis of Windows Update tool twice and it did not fix the problem.

    Help, please!  I don't know how to solve this problem and I am very worried.

    Thank you.

    Proceed as follows: Set "Never search updates" automatic updates, and then restart Windows. Install KB3161608.

  • Windows 7 product key valid and active but has not updated PK on computer

    I managed to install Windows 7 as a dual boot on an ancient tower XP I have upgared by adding the SSD with W7 installed while XP is on the old partition C.

    The product key has been entered and validated successfully and I've been able to pre-order Windows 10, which is the ultimate goal

    My question is the Prouct Key on the computer is always the old XP number is this OK, or will I run into problems of 30 days?

    Product keys are unique for the version and edition of Windows.

    You need to rephrase the last question.

    I dual-boot with another edition of Windows, update will affect other facility?

    No, it will not affect the other operating system, only the version of Windows from which the upgrade is initiated will be replaced.

    In 30 days, Windows 7 will make an attempt to connect to the Internet activation. Afterwards, it prompts you whenever you connect, to activate.

  • Windows 7 screen saver works in Panel, but does not start

    A graphics card freezing issues so I replaced the card and installed the drivers updated.  However, screensaver windows 7 won't launch itself.  It works very well in the Panel, including the example.  But when the time comes to launch due to inactivity of the system the screen goes black and the monitor goes to sleep.  Several times, the monitor hangs to this state of sleep and I have to restart the computer.

    It is a clone of pc with a Biostar G41D3G, socket 775, the Intel Core 2 Duo 4 GB memory, 500 gb hdd, MSI Radeon 1 GB graphics card in the pci-e slot.  Operating system is Windows 7-64 bit.

  • Windows 7 detect my external hard drive, but does not allow me to access it, or see it

    I have a Toshiba 1 TB external hard drive (I threw the box so I don't know what are the specs, but the things written on the back of the room are: ITE HDD E145163 D33033 KCC-REM-DNT-Canv63 N723 Z218 v63600-C 1 TB DC + 5V 1 0 04/12). I remember he said it was compatible on Windows 7, but this doesn't seem to be the case at the moment.

    I plugged my hd; Windows knows it is there and installed the software for it. But I can't save anything in it or access to the workstation. I looked for solutions to this, but nothing has worked. I tried to change the name of the driver [] by but apparently I can't because my hard drive is a primary partition. How can I use my hard drive with Windows 7 on my HP 2009f computer? : c.

    [Btw, I properly formatted the hard drive on my Macbook Pro]

  • Windows 10 acrobat reader dc compatibility resolved but does not

    I use a Tablet by BestBuy House "no-brand" brand It came with Windows 8.1 and Adobe Reader Acrobat DC worked perfectly. Conversion 10 caused immediate compatibility issues Windows: Acrobat DC froze ("not responding"), at the opening. Troubleshooting Adobe found a rigging gerry by DC configuration to open in - or was it from? -"protected mode". Although Acrobat Reader DC opens in effect now, there is no functionality - I can't even Save the document.

    How to restore the functionality?

    Install a program under Windows can be a complex operation; data are not only written in various places on the local disk, but also in the registry.

    The upgrade of Windows is even more complex, and the register must be completely rebuilt.  It doesn't surprise me that some programs work more normally after an upgrade of Windows 10.  Uninstalling/reinstalling will fix these problems in most cases.
