    Blue message popup + can't go to settings>activation

    Hello,

    Every once in a while a blue message pops up in my screen telling me to activate windows in settings. My windows should be activated, besides I cannot seem to go to the activation tab of settings. It just keeps loading. Like this:

    Windows 10 stuck in blue screen boot loop with error: NTFS_FILE_SYSTEM

    I recently played a game that obviously required too much from my laptop, as a notice popped up something about my graphics driver stopped. So I pressed alt tab and closed the game from there. I then went to restart my computer, but a blue screen popped
    up saying "your pc ran into a problem and needs to restart. We'll restart it for you." With NTFS_FILE_SYSTEM as the problem. So it then restarted and the blue windows logo came up along with "Preparing Automatic repair" which stayed for a bit and then a window
    popped up for a few seconds followed by the blue screen again this time with FAT_FILE_SYSTEM. It now just cycles trough this and doesnt get anywhere. Any help is appreciated. Ben.

    You will continue to get that pop-up until you actually activate Windows. I learned about that back when installing Windows and the activation process was first introduced [several years and versions ago].

    I'm not sure what the course of events are after the grace period ends but it should allow you to input a key to activate. Something may have screwed your licensing files - have you used any piracy stuff on there?

    I have this PC pretty long time and from what I remember my windows was activated before the last time I formatted it.
    I have tried to use some activators to activate it back, maybe that what caused to the problem?

    Well, it depends how it was originally activated...?

    If legit, either via Store or upgrade, it will have a digital licence and an upgrade-install (or preferably clean install) may repair the corrupt files and get activation back...
