    windows Vista Serial Number

    I just bought a new computer, with vista installed, but now it shows me a
    message telling me this:
    "Please insert your serial number or Windows will stop working in 3 days"
    Then i've typed the correct one, and the same baloon saying that still apears.
    Then i type it again and it says me this:
    "that serial numer is already being used"

    What should i do?

    Just phone Microsoft to start.
    You should be entitled to some free support for a newish license.

    Call whoever you bought it from immediately and have them make it right.
