  2. Password incorrect after replacing motherboard.

    Hi,



    Thank you for being part of Windows 10 family.



    Sorry to know that you are facing issues with Windows 10.

    There is some confusion about hardware changes on a Computer that will impact their free upgrade activation status. To clarify, the ONLY hardware changes that can negatively impact a customer’s activation status once they have upgrade are changes to the:

    • CPU
    • TPM
    • Motherboard replacement
    If you replaces the Motherboard they may have to re activate but this will not require a purchase of Windows 10.

    You can try to perform a clean install.

    I would suggest you to create a ISO file from the below Microsoft Help Article and try to reinstall Windows 10.

    Hope it helps. Get back to us for further assistance and we will be glad to help.

    Windows activation error

    Hi Brandon,

    Before replacing the Mother Board if Windows 10 was activated, then you can refer the steps/link below for activating Windows 10.

    The only hardware changes that can negatively impact activation status once you upgrade to free version are the changes to the:

    • CPU
    • TPM
    • Motherboard replacement
    The following changes are examples of hardware changes that will NOT impact the activation status:

    • HDD/SSD
    • Video card
    • Adding extra memory
    If you replace the CPU, TPM, or Motherboard you may have to re-activate but this will not require a purchase of Windows 10.
