Today I have spent nearly 1 1/2 hours at office just to activate again all #Micro$oft
products on my desktop. Last Monday the main BIOS was corrupted, but the dual BIOS mainboard recovered from the backup BIOS, but then Windows wanted a system recovery and now everything had to be activated again. I did not install anything, I did not change any hardware, nothing! Why does it need to get activated again? The online activation was not working for the system of course and so I used the telephone activation, but it got rejected after entering 54!!! numbers through the phone! After waiting for some minutes to get a human I hang up and repeat all this again. As a result I got this time another shitload of numbers I had to enter in the computer. M$ Windows was activated at least, but M$ Office needed to get activated also.
Oh yes of course I forgot that M$ Word must for sure access the BIOS to work.
The automatic phone activation with entering 54 numbers did not work this time also and so I had to wait to get a human. This time I stayed in the line, but then they asked me about a serial number. How should I know these stupid serial numbers? I installed it months ago! They could not help me and I have to search the serial first before they can activate it. After I found the serial I called again and of course the automatic telephone activation was not working again after entering 54 numbers, so I had to wait for a human again quite long and when I got a human they just activated it without asking for the fucking damn serial or anything!!! WTF?!?!
Just had to enter another shitload of numbers in the computer and also M$ Office was useable again.
