  1. Can't Change Hardware Virtualization


    I just purchased an HP laptop running Windows 10, which I updated to Ver. 1909. The processor is an Inter Core i5-8250u, which supports Hardware Virtualization. In following the procedure to change (enable) Hardware Virtualization, when I select UEFI firmware settings, and click on the Restart button, instead of opening the BIOS settings, the Startup Menu opens. I don't know where to go from here.

    :)

    Overclocking / Undervolting guide for Vega 56 or 64?

    Here's a quick laundry list:

    List of software to use for overclocking and testing
    Examples:
    Wattman (and how to find and use it, like an overview, including profiles)
    Unigine Valley or Heaven (use this for quick testing while changing settings in Wattman and checking for stability / artifacts) ...just suggesting this
    How to monitor cores / mem speeds and temps during testing (I've seen screen overlays, and others using GPUz)

    Step-by step overclocking in Wattman
    Fan speeds
    Power limit
    Temp limit
    Voltages
    Core speeds
    Memory speeds

    Unable to activate Windows after hardware change

    Hi,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    Usually the error code 0xC004F213 comes when there is a hardware change done on the computer (like Motherboard or Hard drive). The Windows license is associated with the device hardware. If there is any significant hardware changes, such as replacing
    motherboard or hard drive, Windows won’t be able to recognize the license.

    I suggest you to try the troubleshooting steps from the article
    Reactivating Windows 10 after a hardware change
    and see if Windows gets activated.

    If you are using an OEM computer that came with Windows 7, and the motherboard has not been changed, then you can follow the steps to retrieve the product key that came with your OEM computer. To retrieve the product key follow the steps mentioned
    below:

    1. Type Command prompt in the search bar, that is on the taskbar.
    2. Right click on Command prompt icon and select Run as administrator.
    3. Type the command and press on Enter: wmic path SoftwareLicensingService get OA3xOriginalProductKey
    4. You will find the product key.

    Hope it helps.

    Please reply with the status of the issue, we will be glad to help you further.

  4. Can't Change Hardware Virtualization

    Hosted network virtual adapter

    Hi Pinank,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community and we appreciate your interest in Windows 10.

    I will definitely assist you.

    Lets’ try simple steps and check if this helps in resolving the issue.

    Step 1.

    I would suggest you to restart the computer and check if it automatically installed the Hosted network virtual adapter.

    If the above step did not help to fix the issue.

    Step 2.

    I would recommend you to go to Device manager and click on Scan for Hardware changes.
    It will automatically detect the changes and fix it. Restart the computer once scan is done.

    Hope this helps. Post us with the status we will be glad to help you.
