Get error code 0xC004C003 when Activating Windows 8.1 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I Bought the laptop from store three days before.

    And I checked everywhere but I cant find the passcode for activate window .

    My laptop is window 8.1 .

    I try to reset the laptop but not work ( suggestion from laptop band staff)

    Finally, They suggested I need to ask Microsoft.

    The error code is 0xC004C003 and I checked it before.

    It means the window installed more than one PC.

    So, What can I do ?

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    As gkmelbo mentioned, Please press "Windows+R" and type "slui.exe  4", then press the 'ENTER' key, select your 'Country' from the list and choose the 'Phone Activation' option, stay on the phone and wait for help.

  • To fix the problem, buy a product key for each one of your devices to activate Windows on them. If you're using Windows 10, you can buy Windows from the Microsoft Store: Select Start > Settings > Update & Security > Activation
