    Windows 10 activation


    Hi,
    I purchased/installed windows 10 pro from ebay (CoA). I enter the PK and windows does get activated.
    <This PC><properties> displays: "Windows is activated" . I'm used to seeing a genuine stamp on the left
    side of the screen, it's not there.
    Has windows dropped this or do I need to do something?
    Thanks,
    Keith

    :)

  2. Windows 10 Unexpected shutdown on start up

    OK, so i figured it out myself

    Found the logfile in "C:\Windows\Minidump".

    You need the Windows Development Kit to open it and a bit of googling to understand it.

    Found out that a Daemon driver caused an error. Removed Daemon but this didn't solve it. (ps: Daemon itself worked normally).

    I let hibernate my computer again and found another error with sptd2.sys: SCSI Pass Through Direct layer

    More google and ended up on the duplexsecure site. Downloaded the W10 version and voila: problem fixed.

    For the Windows support team: It would be really helpfull if you could pass problems to a more skilled helpdesk who can do more than proposing the standard solutions in case those won't work.

    Cheers

  3. Windows 10 Unexpected shutdown on start up

    OK, so I also found out that this occurs when sleepmode (for me after 3 hours) changes into hibernate mode.

    Seems like the going into hibernate and/or starting up from HIbernate results in a shutdown. In safeboot it works perfectly.

    Anyone any idea how I can figure out where it goes wrong. Is there a way to log this (I couldn't find it in bootlog)

  4. Windows 10 activation

    That's normal for Windows 10. Also look in Settings > Update & security > Activation, it will say activated with a Product key or activated with a digital license.

  6. I can't explain that, I have no idea why they don't match?
    Did you actually get a COA sticker with the key on it? Or just a photo shot of it?
    Did you clean install, or do a change product key to an already installed Windows 10?
    This utility might get you some better info, https://www.tenforums.com/software-ap...7-showkey.html
