    I bought a new Dell win 10 desk top computer with win 10 preinstalled. Everything was find until today when I'm asked to Activate Windows. Why would I be asked if , as I assume, it's already activated? I tried all of the directions and nothing works

    Hi Ray,

    Thanks for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    This issue might occur, when some of the System components got corrupted.

    As per your query, I suggest you to try the below steps and check if it helps.

    Method 1: Perform System File Checker (SFC) scan.

    System File Checkeris a utility in Windows that allows users to scan for corruptions in Windows system files and restore corrupted files.

    To perform SFC Scan, refer to the below link:

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/929833

    Note:Steps mentioned for Windows 8/8.1, will work fine with Windows 10.

    I asked this question days ago

    I have had several ideas but nothing has worked

    maybe if I word the question more carefully

    my PC has 2 hard drives one is Win 7 / Win 7 works

    the other drive is Win 10

    Win 10 boots up and everything looks normal

    all the displays look correct, i.e. sign in my desk top

    the problem in about 3 seconds the desk top screen goes black

    I do ctrl alt delete and I get a normal screen and from Task manager

    I go to Internet Explorer or Office or Outlook everything works

    the screen display is normal - but no desk top - icons - start menu etc that part

    is still all black

    it seems that everything video is ok

    something happens to Win 10 desk top
