    replacing motherboard


    My laptop has a dead USB C port. I am getting the motherboard replaced. I was told to remove bitlocker. That is fine I understand that. But they are also asking me to remove PIN and password because after board replacement the PIN and password wont work? does this sound right?

    :)

    Hi Keith,

    to keep license you need to replace motherboard by warranty. Sorry that are the license terms. If this will be warranty replacement please remember technician to do steps necessary for license keeping.

  3. 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.

    Replace motherboard - steps to consider.

    What steps should you consider when/before replacing the motherboard? Should old chipset drivers etc be unisntalled prior to the swap? What about the TPM? If this has been enabled does it need to backed up or disabled before the swap?
