Hi guys, Bit by bit I've been updating my machine. I've now hit the point where MS wants me to RE activate my O.S. When I click YES, I get a blue box - outline only. It's obviously the box that has either more buttons on it, or fields for this or that,,,, but all I get is the frame of the box, and can still see the desktop through it.
How long does reactivation usually take ? This morning I left this frame on the screen for over 30 minutes, just in case it was actually doing something that I couldn't see,,, but as I couldn't do anything else I had to stop it.
I only have 1 day to activate.
Any ideas please,,,, or does anyone know a contact telephone number for MicroSoft - UK please ?
I also need to know the form factor of my case. It currently contains a KM400-8235 M.B.
Bear in mind that if the OS was originally OEM, MS may refuse to activate it and will direct you to the computer manufacturer to purchase a new code - around £30. At least, that's what happened to me the last time.
Form factor of case is most likely mATX, especially if it is an Acer T120 (from your previous thread click here).
But please note that it doesn't always go according to motherboard size. In other words, one can have a mATX motherboard housed in a larger ATX case. But not the other way around - an ATX motherboard won't fit in a mATX-only case. G
