Unable to activate Windows 8 after reload

Specs: Windows 7/8
When I bought my new computer it had win7 on it I was offered a free update to 8 so I took it hated it and went back to 7. My computer got a virus and I had to reload it, having used my grandsons lap top with 8. and having purchased a disc from Microsoft the first time I decided to load back the 8 again and give it another try loaded win 7 then upgrade 8 all ok now I have an activation problem. I have a genuine win 8 disc and through the purchase of a pre loaded computer the right to use it Microsoft keep turning me off. I have tried to get in touch with them to sort it out but so far have failed can you help?
