    A Microsoft key is just a string of numbers and letters; what exactly is the nature of your problem? Are you saying the keys have been blacklisted by Microsoft and don't work?

    My guess is since they're OEM keys, they've already been used. Being a "one and done" sort of thing, they can't be used again since they're mystically linked to a specific computer/main board.

    If that's the case, "repair" is not an option.

    Just use the telephone automated system method if you are refused by the online activation. I did it [AGAIN] about an hour ago. Punch the numbers in as requested, answer yes both times to "have you used the software previously?" and "has the software been uninstalled from the previous machine?"
    They'll then give you a code.......away you go......all done !!

    This has been mentioned many, many times in the past.
