Re: "Windows Activation Technologies" Pop-Up window asking for varification...???
go to the start menu, right click on my computer and select properties. Scroll down and see what it says, it will probably say 'Windows is Not activated' looking at your post.
There's usually an option for 'change product key' - select this and enter the key on your OEM sticker. This should activate and go through no problems. If no, you need to call microsoft.
