  1. Product key issue


    Hello, I recently bought a pre-owned amd pc, the product key that was installed on the pc was fine as I was able to update without any issues, well my friend was cleaning it for me and decided to do a brand new installation of windows 10 pro … well it was pirated and now I'm dodging any update on the fear my pc will be water marked, so he wiped my data with the fresh installation and now when I run any product key finder in my pc I get a key but when I try to change the product key in the activation settings it says 'to activate with this product key, this pc will need to connect to your organizations activation service' I then press activate it says 'we cant activate windows on this device as we cant connect to your organizations activation server' is my old product key gone for ever or what do I need to do? buy a new windows? please get back to me someone thank you.

    Product key issue

    Where is my Product Key if I want to re-install?


    Like davidhk said. But if you really want to see your windows key, I would suggest Belarc advisor. It will give you some useful information about your system, product keys of your software is among them (not only Microsoft, you will have listed most of your keys).
