Hi there,

Please follow this link below:

If that still doesn't work you will need to give Microsoft a call and they will assist you activating Windows over the phone.

If you click on the 'Start' button, and type into the search 'Activate Windows' it should find a link in the Control Panel to activate your copy of Windows.

It will try online activation first, however if there is issues connecting it will give you the details to call Microsoft on their automated line.
