    I'm guessing that your machine came preinstalled with Vista, right? If that's true, it was installed originally using an OEM disk, and an OEM install can only be activated once.



    If you have a sticker with a product key, you can call MS (get a number by entering "slui.exe 4" in the start button text area and selecting your local country), and they MIGHT give you a new product key. But since you didn't purchase the OEM product, they probably will not.



    In which case, you'll have to contact the supplier of the machine and have THEM reactivate it for you -- which will probably mean sending it back to them, in which case they will wipe the machine and reimage it from scratch.



    You have no other options -- OEM keys can only be activated once.
