  1. Can't reactivate Windows after a hardware change.


    Recently changed my motherboard, the troubleshooting wizard isn't able to contact servers, and the "Get Help" application errors out anytime I request a call back. Is there any other way to contact support so I can get my computer activated?

    :)

  3. windows 10 reactivation after hardware change

    I just changed motherboards, and When I follow the the steps listed in the "reactivate windows 10 after hardware change" support page, it gives me the message "unable to activate windows" message after I sign in and identify my device,
    with no error code, just a subheader that says "can't activate windows 10 on this device, try again later."

    Windows 10 won't reactivate after a hardware change

    I changed a lot of the hardware on my device recently, however I followed the steps on the Microsoft support page to get my computer ready for the hardware change so that I could reactivate Windows 10 after I changed the hardware. However, now it won't reactivate,
    and has the error code 0xC004F025, and when I try to troubleshoot it says "We can't reactivate Windows on this device. Try again later."

    My Windows 10 was a free upgrade from Windows 7.
