  1. Once if I changed my hardware, my win10 couldn't activate


    That's my laptop. Once if I changed my CD-ROM to HDD, windows 10 will say ' the product key you entered doesn't match the hardware profile '.

    (I've got one SSD as main drive, two another HDDs in my laptop, and each of them working properly.)

    I just wanna have an extra HDD to replace the CD-ROM, for more disk space. I didn't change anything else in my laptop.

    I need some assistance for this, thank you guys.

    Troubleshoot can't help with it.

    Win10 won't activate after RAM change

    Hey! I replaced my old RAM cards with two new ones, and now I'm stuck with a "activate windows" prompt in the bottom right corner of my screen. The troubleshooter does not seem to do anything (tried checking the changed hardware option + chose my device
    in the list of devices + it said win10 was now activated.... but the prompt won't leave.)

    I got win10 during the free upgrade period, and thus I don't have a product key... Any suggestions?

    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.
