I purchased genuine windows 7 from HP service centre on 3rd October 2011...now my system shows 22days left for activation, -- when i try to activate it , the message comes invalid keys....does it mean the service centre gave me pirated windows 7?

Hello GiriS. I understand you're having trouble activating your copy of Windows 7.
You should contact Microsoft about this issue. They should be able to activate the installation for you over the phone. This article should be very helpful.
Have a great day.

I am a Microsoft Refurbisher and Windows 7 has a 30 day activation period after install.
If you used a restore disc you are not asked for key or activation.
I do not think HP gave you a PIRATED copy.
