Invalid windows 7 key

So i recently got a windows 7 pro sp1 64bit disk off ebay. It just came in a little pack with a product key. After installing onto my brand new desktop it asked me to validate the copy so i enter the code and i got this error 0xc004c008. On top of the disk it says "Already installed on your computer" so i'm assuming it's just a reinstall disk but windows 7 still went on fine but it's just not validating. Any help would be great

    The following page from Microsoft might explain your issue: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/windows-7-activation-error-0xc004c008

    Most likely, if you got it off ebay, they gave you a key that is no longer valid or has been used.
