    So my toshiba satellite crashed and everything I tried to fix it failed. I used the recovery disks and now it won't accept my product key. I've called every number for both microsoft and toshiba that's available and no one has helped me. I'm getting really worked up over this, because it's not even like the product key is invalid, it just says the 8th character is unacceptable! Am I really going to have to buy a new product key?!?!

    Have you tried the numbers in this list: http://support.microsoft.com/common/international.aspx

    I doubt Toshiba would be able to help with this problem but Microsoft should, as long as your existing key is genuine. Some keys do get blocked due to piracy or from frequent revalidation. Usually a call to Microsoft will get you another key.

    Have you got a Product Key licence sticker on the PC?
