I installed a wind7 disk 29 days ago that I had to use product key for, when I put in number in it told me that it is invalid, so I went to key finder and they gave me a different number which turned out to be a default number. I didn't register or activate all program keys beforehand now it won't let me activate windows7. Anyway, being very uninformed in laptop tech I'm turning to any help I can get. thankyou in advance.

Try activating by phone. If the automated phone activation does not work, talk to a Microsoft Rep and explain the problem. The Rep will help you activate Windows.
