✔ Best Answer
Call the appropriate Microsoft Activation Centre to activate it over the phone; The phone number should appear on the screen when online activation fails, otherwise refer to this page:

Strange, it should have taken the product key unless you have made a significant change to the hardware. Whatever, MS should be able to help.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

If it came with Windows 7 pre-installed, you haven't had it for "a very long time". Please post the make/model & explain how you're going about the re-installation. Also, activating requires you to go online & connect to the Microsoft sever, it doesn't require entering in the product key.
