  1. Microsoft 10 Reset/ Activation Key


    Recently in this last week I had to reset my computer.

    I couldn't system restore to a back up point and had to reset the computer completely. It was starting on the blue screen and that was my only option.

    My question is this, now that I have done this my computer is still returning to the blue screen and is asking me to activate windows. I follow the instructions and it takes me to "Update and Security", "Activation" and gives me a blank white screen.


    This computer is business use and has forced me to wipe the computer to "factory reset" now is still having issues.


    Is there any way to fix this or is my $2,000- computer broken?

    :)

  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.

    Important W10 activation key questions left unanswered by Microsoft

    A little info on this.
    Your keys from TechNet or MSDN are and can be Retail, OEM, Static Activation, Multiple Activation, Custom, or other.
    You can go to your TechNet site and sign in.
    Then click on the "Export to XML" link at the top right hand side of the key chart.
    When you open this; there will be a column the shows the "Product Key Type".

    Example (Keys block out, of course):

    Here is an MS chart of the Key meanings from Product Keys and Activation for MSDN site... the key meaning, also, applies to the now defunct TechNet Keys.

    Chart from the page:

    EDIT:
    You do not need to be on a MS account any longer... you can be just a local user.
    As long as you are connected to the internet they can find you.

    Also, this may help explain some... as, it applies to the activation of Windows 10, too.

    Microsoft quietly rewrites its activation rules for Windows 10

    Not only that, you can check your M$ account and see what devices are listed there, so you know if you can do a clean install or not. Do the upgrade, get it activated, verify that it is listed in your account, then feel free to do a fresh install without activation issues ever.
