    Unable to activate new Windows 10


    Hi,
    I bought a brand new copy of Windows 10 Pro OEM 64 bit.

    I popped the DVD in for a clean install and it installed ok. For the last couple of days, I've had no issues until today where it tells me it is not activated.

    I've tried reinstalling the activation key and all I get is an error saying "unable to activate windows because you dont have a valid licence or product key (0x803f7001). I've copied exactly as on the sticker ont he DVD.

    I've attached the results on Licensing diag. In this file, it lists 'ActivePartialProductKey : 3V66T' but this is not the key I'm entering!!

    Has anyone encountered this or know why it suddenly doesn't like the key the key I entered???

    It is version 1909.

    Any assistance is appreciated.

    Thanks

    :)

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    DOWNLOAD WINDOWS 10 NOW - Upgrade and ISO direct from microsoft

    Click to expand... Yeah I went to that site, why do I need to buy a key?
    I won't buy a key, stupid.

    I'll revert back to windows 7 then.

    When I still was on windows 7, about a year ago I added 4GB extra ram which is a total of 8GB now,
    is that causing the problem?

    From http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-10/why-activate-windows-10

    If you upgraded to Windows 10 for free and ended up in a non-activated state, try following these steps:

    • Go to Start

      , then select Settings > Update & security > Activation.
    • Select Go to Store, and check to see if a valid license is available for your device. If a license isn't available, you'll need to buy Windows from the Store.

      Note
      • This only applies if you haven't made changes to the hardware for your device.

    or you could hack it with a crack but please note this is always risky and you don't know what's in the hack
