Had to reinstall windows XP on my old machine and couldn't activate the windows (100% original) due to error nr 32777. Now the 30 days have passed and I still can't activate it due to the same error. Searched the entire internet and nothing seems to work, the 'bypass' trick (windows+u) doesn't work either and the computer is unusable.
Just didn't try calling windows support to activate seeing as it's a paid call and I don't find that fair.
This is the error that pops up:
Unable to establish a connection with the activation server. Please check your network settings and confirm that you are able to connect to the Internet, then try again. Message number 32777.
Is there anything that can be done?
I have a working internet connection with the usual cable I use for my regular computer.
