  1. Windows 10 wont detect new hardware for Activation


    I recently swapped to a new motherboard. When I booted into Windows I noticed my copy wasn't activated. When I went to the activation Troubleshooter to change the hardware it was activated on, I noticed it wasn't detecting my new hardware. My old Motherboard was by MSI, my new one is by ASUS.

  2. Windows 10 wont "Activate" after hardware upgrade

    Hi, fcp4life,

    Follow the steps listed in this Support Doc.

    Reactivating Windows 10 after a hardware change

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/20530/...

    If you made a significant hardware change to your device (such as replacing the motherboard), Windows 10 might no longer be activated and you might see the activation error codes 0x803f7001 or 0xC004C008.

    If your Original Hardware Manufacturer (OEM) changed the motherboard for you, your PC should reactivate automatically or you should be provided with a replacement product key. If you see the Activation error “Unable to reach Windows activation servers,” then
    follow the steps in this additional help article.

    How long did you wait for activation?
    When I re-installed with a fresh install... it took a few hours to sync and activate.
    However, it did, finally, activate.

    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
