What's the edition of your game? Your serial code should be found on the back of the game's manual. First just double check this is entered correctly.

 

If it's faulty, I suggest contacting EA customer support here. Otherwise you may want to take this up with the retailer, and ask for a full refund / replacement.

Once you've convinced EA of your bona fides, they will give you a key that will work.  However, you should consider returning the package for a refund and purchase the digital download version from Amazon, GamersGate, Steam or Origin.  It comes fully patched, requires no play disk, and is immediately fully operational.

 

The CD version of deluxe needs two published patches, needs the play disk (#2) in the drive, and can be a bit of an administrative nuisance.
