When you tried to validate it over the internet, what was the message you received when it failed?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

There was no number issued with this disc ,and tried to buy one to solve the problem

Expert:  Richard replied 4 years ago.
You do not need to buy one Robert, as one is already assigned to your computer. Plus you cannot buy one, as they are matched to your exact copy of windows.

But click Start, right click computer and select properties.

Go to the bottom of the window there and click on Validate.

When you try to validate online, what exactly happens?

Can you choose this option please Robert, then call the number and have it activated over the phone.
