  2. Microsoft Activation

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    1. How did you install Windows 10 before performing the Reset?
    2. Which edition of Windows are you trying to activate?


    Step 1: Check the Status of the Windows Activation

    1. Open the Run command (Windows Key + R Key)
    2. Type in ‘Control system’ and hit ‘Enter’.
    3. Check the status.
    4. Let us if you see ‘Windows is activated’ on System Properties Window.


    If the Windows is not activated, try to activate with the product key.

    Windows product key is a 25-character code used to activate Windows



    Step 2: Activate with the Windows 10 product key

    1. Open the run command (Windows key + R Key)
    2. Type in “Slui 3” and click on ‘Activate’ and then check the status of issue.






    Hope it helps.

  3. Microsofts Activation services phone #?

    So I had an old rig that was running a RETAIL version of Win XP Home. Well the thing died. I want to use the product key from that old machine to do a win 7 upgrade, however, I cannot seem to find Microsoft's support number anywhere on their site, instead it redirects me to a page and here's what it says:

    Well guess freakin what, THE COMPUTER IS DEAD, THEREFORE I CAN NOT DO ANY OF THOSE DAMN THINGS!!!!!!! *Bang Head :banghead:

    This is seriously getting on my nerves!

    Even googling it takes me to the same place. Does anyone have the number for their "Activation services" department?
