Vista Diminished Capability Mode

I have a Vista machine that for some reason did not re-activate with the KMS machine. The only way to login now is in "Diminished Capability Mode". Is there a way around this so I can get it to activate with the KMS machine without having to reload Vista?

Just follow the directions in the screenshots making up the article.
