  1. Activate Windows after building new PC


    Hello, I purchased a desktop PC from Best Buy years ago. It originally had came with windows 8 on it. I upgraded to Windows 10, using the free opportunity that Microsoft Provided at that time. Then, I built a new desktop tower for myself, and in the process transferred some of the old hardware from the first PC I mentioned to it. This included the hard-drive of the 1st to my current, the 2nd. This hard-drive had my copy of Windows 10 on it, which is what I'm using now.


    My problem is I have this "Activate Windows" watermark in the bottom right hand corner of my screen and it won't go away. I have tried going to "Settings" then clicking "Troubleshoot". That didn't yield anything. There's a red text message that shows:


    "We can't activate Windows on this device as we can't connect to your organization's activation server. Make sure you're connected to your organization's network and try again. If you continue having problems with activation...Error code: 0x8007232B"


    I'm not using a pirated copy of windows 10, or anything like that, so I want this removed. How can I have this removed?

    :)

  3. PC Build Steps

    Ok just because I like steps i am going to create some steps. Please give me the stamp of approval/disapproval
    • Install system in case
      • Remember to connect SSD and optical to same SATA ports on motherboard
    • Turn on PC
    • setup HDD
    • run blend test in prime95 for 30-60 min
      • run realtemp at the same time
    • While in Prime95 test
      • if CPU goes above 70c in RealTemp, I have a leaky CPU
      • if my system locks up or blue screens, there is an instability in the system somewhere
      • if my system does not lock up or blue screen, my CPU is not damaged and I am in the clear!
    What do you guys think??
