  1. Windows 10 Activation


    I recently upgraded my PC with a new motherboard, ram and CPU and when i turned on the PC it said that i needed to activate windows. I went into the settings and there was an error that said windows could not be activated because of the hardware change, error: 0xC004F211. I went into the troubleshooter and clicked on "I recently changed my hardware" and it opened a window but it said "We can't reactivate Windows as our servers aren't available right now. Wait for a few minutes or try adding your Microsoft account again". I upgraded from windows 8.1 completely free


    It has been like this for a few days. I have tried the slui.exe 4 command and nothing happens. I have tried a lot of other methods but nothing has worked. I have contacted support and they have said that i need to buy a new licence because i have changed a lot of my hardware so its basically a new computer. But i have read that the troubleshooter is supposed to fix the problem and for other people it has worked.


    Is there really no solution to this problem? Do i need to wait for the serves to work? Do i have to buy a new licence?


    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    :)

    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?

    DOWNLOAD WINDOWS 10 NOW - Upgrade and ISO direct from microsoft

    this search might help you https://www.google.com.au/webhp?sou...o+to+get+it+activated+windows+10+blocked+keys

    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
      Windows 10 Activation [​IMG]
      , 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
