I changed my i5 to an i7 did an update on the bios and a few days later windows tells me that I dont have an genuine windows. Tried to reactivate even on the phone and I get a hang-up. I have to much stuff on my PC to start over again. I am very angry with Windows. Maybe if I have to start over I will go with Linux.

I tried phone activation again was told that I might be the victim of fraud. Bought this copy Nov of 09 and have been using it since then. To reinstall Windows 7 Home again I will lose all kinds of stuff as I tether to my Blackberry and only have 5 gb of service a month. I took many months of downloading to have my PC where it is today. They want me to buy another Windows Pro for $ 149.00.

Lately there have been several reports of instances of blocked MSDN keys packaged with legitimate looking media. I can't stress enough to save your packaging, media and reciepts, if you purchase software such as this seek recourse with the store you purchased
it from and report it to www.microsoft.com/piracy
If you have purchased a key, with or without DVD's or packaging from EBAY or any other person or vendor and believe it may be an MSDN key because your key has been blocked you can check a few things yourself, if you received your key with the physical product go to www.microsoft.com/howtotell and verify your product however some counterfeit software is so convincing you may not be able to spot it as such.
To check your PID press the win key and pause at the same time, or open system properties through the control panel, scroll down to activation section and look at the PID It will look something like this 12345-067-1234567-54321, the portion you are interested in is the three digit section, if it matches or is within one or two digits of the examples below you probably have an MSDN key.
065, 066, 067, 068 for Ultimate, 220 area for Pro and the 230, 231, 221 area for premium, there are probably others but they should be close to those posted
You can purchase a genuine Windows License from the Microsoft Store http://store.microsoft.com, the product key will be emailed to you.
click Start, right click Computer
Scroll down to Windows Activation
Click the link to change your product key
Enter your product key and use Phone Activation to activate your license. Remember to explain to the call agent your situation.
Pro.Why will it activate my Microsoft Word 2007 but not WindowsNo, a Microsoft Windows Product key cannot activate Microsoft Office products (or Microsoft Word 2007 which is a part of Microsoft Office).
From your MGA Report:
It says 220 that it what they said that it was blocked. not sure what that means. I did buy from ebay and have the receipt.eBay My World: goldenfireblue( 163) this seller has excellent feedback I think it is legit.
Also I had a few problems when I first installed it did the phone activate and it worked why not now.
