I got my new laptop and typed in the vista product key. I then reinstalled vista at a later date because something went wrong (off-topic matter). Now when i try to activate my windows vista using the product key the automated phone service states i have already got it used the key on another computer. Could this possibly be my first installation?

I don't know what to do, 3 days left before activation runs out and i dont know what will happen.

Help plese.

did u activate it before, if not then shis should work and anyway you can install vista on 2 pc's, but no more because it registers the mother board, in thiery everythime u upgrade your mother board you must buy the windows version again.
