  1. Contact Microsoft support and have them help get it activated or take it back to where you bought it for a refund\replacement.

    Please check the time and date that is shown in the bottom right hand corner of your Windows 7 screen display or XP if that is what you are using. For security reasons, you will not be able to authenticate with an incorrect date in the bios setting. You can reset it on your screen or in the bios.

    Great suggestion; I believe that can also work for Windows Updates as well.
  4. connect the unit to the internet.

    Start>right click on Computer (properties)

    Down the bottom it will be asking for the windows key...

    Enter they key you received with the disc's/download link when you bought windows..

    This process will activate winnows so this error will no longer show up.

    Thanks,
  5. Where did you purchase this copy?
