    I recently bought a new laptop with windows 11 pre-installed. after installing windows update, the windows was corrupted and it wouldn't boot. after resetting windows for a couple of timesreset twice, corrupted after update, I have reset it again but now it's asking to active windows 11. How can I get my previous activation key?

  2. Windows Activation?

    Windows will do this if it detects a significant (their word, questionable use) hardware change, and will ask you to reactivate.

    After a key has been activated X number of times, you will have to call to activate it.

    Couple of tips for the phone call: You can use your keypad, and when they're telling you keys, instead of saying "Repeat that" and "Continue" type 1 and 2. With these tips, that activation call will only last you about 4 and a half minutes.

    Reset repair - now loss of activation

    I'm curious why you didn't provide the troubleshooting info @cereberus asked for in his reply? slmgr /dlv

    That is truly the first step we needed to provide accurate advice.

    This is the result we are looking for:

    Windows 10 fails to update


    When you finish testing the Avast suggestion, make sure that you restart your machine.

    Then if the issue persists, please return to the trouble shooting list in post# 89

    I think there are three steps that remain; the WU troubleshooter, reset WU components, and manual WU reset.
