    I am trying to reactivate my Home Premium on my Dell Studio 1558

    For some reason it refuses to activate with error code 0xc004c008

    Does this come under warranty?

    If Dell refuses to give warranty on my OS, I will have to go illegal. Which is my safest best if I want to use a illegal windows?

    Are VL editions safe to use? Do they expire? What is mostly 100% undetectable?

    Wait why do you need to re-activate? Plus the key on the bottom of the laptop doesn't activate online it only activates by phone
