  1. Activation errors for *years*


    Okay so I'm probably very late to this.

    A couple of years ago I decided to buy a laptop from a friend of mine.

    He mentioned an issue about the windows os refusing to stay activated, whereas he had bought the pc with a properly activated windows os. After a month or so it had deactivated, so he decided to buy a version anew to activate it again. It took a short while yet again before it deactivated, and refused to activate. This happened another time, until he gave up.

    I've not thought too much of this. But I've decided to check out any possible solutions to this.

    Note:

    I do not have the current activation key, as my friend lost it a long time ago.

    The troubleshooting is not to much help either, and I'm kinda treading in the darkness here, as there are no hints.


    So the question is: Has anybody experienced this? Do any of you think there is a way to deal with this?

    :)

    Windows 10 will not activate Error code 0x803F7001


    Possibly there can be the problem with Microsoft activation Server, so your Windows 10 is not activated. In this scenario, you need to wait and verify if it is the issue from Microsoft’s side. But if you are getting error code 0x803f7001, you can also try these steps:

    1. Open Settings app. Then go to Update and security > Activation screen > Change product.
    2. Type your Windows edition product key and click Next.
    3. You’ll get We couldn’t activate Windows error message.
    4. Retry steps 1-3 then type your 25-characters unique product key.
    5. Wait for the process to complete, Windows 10 is activated.
    Hope something helps this problem

    Windows 10 Activation Error: 0xC004F034

    Hi Greg,

    This error code is usually caused by a problem with the product key. For better assistance, we would like to clarify how you got the Windows 10 Pro? Is it supplied by a company?

    As an initial troubleshooting step, we suggest that you run the Activation troubleshooter and try activating Windows 10 Pro again. To run the Activation troubleshooter, follow these steps:

    • Click the Start button and select the Settings
      icon.
    • Choose Update & Security from the list.
    • Select Activation in the left pane of the window.
    • Click Troubleshoot.

    If your Windows 10 Pro is supplied by a company, we recommend that you get in touch with your organization's support for assistance with the activation.

    We'll be waiting to your reply.
