My coworkers Dell came in today. I volunteer to format and reinstall to get rid of the craplets. Installs fine, and activation fails. I retype the key right off the sticker and it still fails. So i proceed with activating over the phone using the number displayed on the screen, and no dice. The Microsoft Windows activation phone line plays elevator music for a moment and then goes silent. Here try it yourself, you most likely wont go through to the robot or anyone... 1-866-740-1256 (North America) So what do i do now? I don't want this PC leaving her unactivated.
