  1. If it's the same computer you can do between 3 and 5 before it will ask you to call.
  2. For me it was somewhere between 3 and 5 that it prompted me to call. It only takes a couple minutes and you don't have to even talk to anyone.
  3. You just read off your set of numbers, then they read you a set of numbers back then you activate.
  4. And if i have to call,is the procedure hard?Will i be able to do it from here in Belgium?Should I use my cell phone?
  5. So no cell phones or money are involved?
  6. You can use a cell and it's a no cost feature.
  7. What about the humber?What code should i use here from Belgium?

  9. So i call this number:+32(0)2 503 31 13 and they tell me the number after i tell them my number on the screen?
  10. Should work yes.
  11. Will i speak to a real person or to a computer?
  12. It's automated ,you can get the number from the activation window in windows 7.
  13. So i have to search for the number of the country nearest to me?What if i have changed my position?It doesn't matter right?And i can do unlimited phone activations?
  14. Just choose your location in the window that pops up.
  15. So it doesn't matter which location i choose?But are the calling codes of each country written?And are the phone activation unlimited?
  16. As long as it's the same computer phone activation won't be limited.
  17. I always use my cell.
  18. And is there another way to make the call?Only by phone or it can be done through a computer too?
  19. I called the toll free number but they told me i dont have enough money for the call.I called the toll number and it took me money but the activation was successful.I have one question.I choosed Bulgaria from countries,because i don't understand Belgium and Bulgaria is my home country.It is not a problem,right?I mean,whatever country i choose,i can make the activation?And i recorded the code.If i intend to activate windows again and call the bulgarian number,can i write the same code or they will give me a new one?
  20. You use the same code.

    Hi :)

    He can use the same code ONLY if NO hardware is changed as that code is generated from various pieces of hardware...

    So if he changes say a hard drive or adds some extra ram...that code wont work.... it also wont work on ANY other machine...

    The reason I mention that is he keeps asking about UNLIMITED activations.... which also wont work....

    All the best Brett :)
  22. So even phone activations won't be unlimited?

    Hi :)

    No.... I have never known of more than 5 ...why would you want "unlimited" anyway ??

    All the best Brett :)
  24. Because i will stay with this windows a long time and i am worried.All of my online activations are gone and only my phones ones left.That's why i am asking.
  25. The Windows 7 Product Key (License) is perpetual, it never expires. You can reuse the key as many times as you wish, as long as the operating system is only installed on one computer at a time.

    The Student version of Windows 7 is the Retail, Upgrade version. You will need to perform the installation the same way you did when you originally installed it.

    The product key that you used to activate the first installation is kept on the Activation Servers at Microsoft. After you reinstall, you may need to perform a manual activation, which means that you may need to use the telephone option when you activate. Here are the instructions for a manual activation.


    1. From the desktop, press the Windows Logo Key+R. This will bring up the Run dialog box.

    2. In the Open: box, type slui 4 and press OK. This will start the manual activation wizard.

    3. Select your Country in the drop down menu and click Next.

    4. The wizard will display a Toll Free phone number. Leave the wizard open on the computer and call that phone number.

    You will be given some recorded options. Select the option to talk to a live representative.

    The representative will manually activate that system for you.

    Let us know if you have any more problems

    RELAX and enjoy Windows 7 :D
  26. Thanks but as everyone tells,the online activations are limited(3 to 5).Since i think i have expired them,i want to know how many TELEPHONE activations i can make.I won't change the lap top or any hardware on it.
  27. The Windows 7 Product Key (License) is perpetual, it never expires. You can reuse the key as many times as you wish, as long as the operating system is only installed on one computer at a time. < Your all Set ^^^^^^^^^^^ :D
  28. If it's the same computer you can do between 3 and 5 before it will ask you to call.you
    ^
    So why did you write this then?So 3 to 5 online activations and UNLIMITED phone activations?Or unlimited both?
  29. And two final questions:First,if i choose bulgarian from countries every time and i write the same code that i have recorded every time(with every reinstall) i can do it as many times as i want,right?And second,if i don't activate it(in the worst scenario) will i still be able to use the Internet and if yes,for how long?I am in Belgium for studying and using the Internet is urgent.
  30. Anyone?
  31. Please answer.

    Hi :)

    In THEORY yes, but ONLY on that machine....i dont understand why you are asking though as reactivating is something people do every 3,4,5 years or so...

    All the best Brett :)
  35. Because i am a paranoid and every little slowing that i notice in the windows,i re-install the whole system.
