    Upgraded Motherboard + GPU. Was told I had Windows 10 connected to account, now it says it...


    Hey, so I just upgraded my PC for the first time in a while last one was upgrading to an SSD, in which I also encountered issues with activation, but this time, I checked and was being told in the "Activation" tab in "Update & Security", that my copy of windows was connected to my account, so I figured I'd have no issues. However, after the upgrade, it is now telling me that Windows is not activated with Error Code: 0x803FA067


    Troubleshooting does nothing, same goes for the "Change product key" option. On top of that, I'm getting an error every time I want to use the live chat, so I can only ask for help here. So I hope someone can help me figure out what to do next, used CMD to check my product key before all this too, so I still have the key, it just doesn't appear to do anything now was a Volume License for Windows 10 Pro.

    Here are some of my PC's specs let me know if more details are needed:


    Motherboard: B450 Tomahawk Max Motherboard

    CPU: Ryzen 5 3600

    RAM: 16GB Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3000MHz

    GPU: GTX 970 EVGA

    SSD: Samsung SSD 860 QVO 1TB

    :)

    Upgrading to Windows 10 from windows 7 and losing internet connection

    When trying to search for a driver on that motherboard, it doesn't say Windows 10 on it. My suggestion would be to get a NIC card of some sort that is known to work with the OS (most).

    Strange Windows 10 User Account issue.

    Unfortunately I had done those steps numerous reboots, it just, reappears for no good reason. The base account isn't even a Microsoft account, it's a local account.

    I haven't quite tried the built in administrator account on W10, but so far in my experience on my own computer, the built in account seemed to have absolutely no more control than I did on my own.

    It's just strange, I go in, it warns me twice about deleting the account, then it's gone. Reboot, and it's back?

    EDIT: Just to specify, both command line and Netplwiz both say only HIS account exists on the computer, it doesn't list this rogue account. This is what I meant in my first post about the fact that even Windows doesn't seem to believe it exists, HALF the time. *Frown Upgraded Motherboard + GPU.

    Windows saying not activated after motherboard upgrade

    Hi,

    I recently upgraded some PC parts (new motherboard, RAM, processor, video card) and ever since then I have a watermark in the bottom right of my display reading "Activate Windows - Go to Settings to activate Windows."

    I took advantage of the free upgrade to Windows 10 back when they were allowing Windows 8 users to upgrade to Windows 10. I don't remember receiving an activation key during this upgrade.

    I've read online that installing a new motherboard can occasionally cause issues with OS activation. How can I reactivate my Windows without having to purchase Windows 10.

    Some things to note:
    • This watermark was not there prior to installing the new motherboard
    • As some places (and a Microsoft Tech Support member) suggested, typing the query "wmic path softwarelicensingservice get OA3xOriginalProductKey" into CMD just returns with "OA3xOriginalProductKey". The Microsoft Support member seemed confused by this and said there was nothing further she could do.

    Thanks!
