How can I activate my OS?

Specs: Windows 7
I have upgraded my samsung N130 XP to windows 7 Ultimate with a fresh installation. The hard disk is changed and formated before window 7 ultimate was installed. All the window XP drivers that came with the laptop were also installed. The problem was, I could'nt activate my windows 7 Ultimate after many tries. Can you tell me what to do?

You should call the Microsoft activation telephone number. They will be able to help you.

In addition you might want to check in device manager and see if all the hardware is properly set up. XP drivers for windows 7 aren't the ideal choice. If problems show in device manager you need to go to the support page for your model and check for windows 7 drivers.

"All the window XP drivers that came with the laptop were also installed"

That should NOT have been done. The drivers have nothing to do with your activation problem, but you can download the proper Win7 drivers from Samsung:

Are you using a legal copy of Win7? If not, we can't help you.

Plus if you have a legit copy of Windows 7, you just need to enter the long activation code (Windows Key). If you do not have the key and/or legit copy, you need to purchase one. If you are sure that your copy is legal and has never been used on another machine (sealed copy) and it still does not work, contact Microsoft as indicated above (be ready to prove ownership). If you paid for a new one but received an open package, go/send to where it was originally purchased.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
