Mutiple Optiplex 3040 fail to activate.

These are brand-new-in-box and spit out 0xc004c008 when attempting to activate stating that the key has been used before.

I have done all windows updates and used dell command to update drivers and firmware.

Somewhat related as this is why I'm here and not on the phone with dell yet: When I enter the Service tag number, on the dell website it tells me I'm out of warranty (bought December 6th this year) and that if I want to speak to an agent it's going to cost me.

I'm in Canada if that makes a difference.
