  1. product key activation


    My product key is not working, when I tried to press activate it kept on telling me that "we can't activate windows on this device as we can't connect to your organisations activation server. Make sure you are connected to your organisations network and try again. If you continue having problems with this activation, contact your organisations support person. Error code 0xC0040F074". I also tried using troubleshooter but it is not responding. This is a new pc. Please kindly help

    :)

  2. Activate windows 10 after re-installing (I have lost my product key)

    I own a Lenovo T430 laptop. In 2017, I installed Windows 10 using my original Windows 7 product key. Unfortunately, I cannot find that product key anymore. I need to re-install windows 10. Will it be automatically activated after the installation, if I skip the step of asking the product key during the installation?

    In my opinion, I believe that my laptop will have a digital entitlement stored on the Microsoft Activation Servers and this will not be a problem. Is that true?

    If not, please suggest me a solution or a workaround.
