    Windows activation error


    Hi,


    I have a laptop that came with Windows 8 installed as OEM. It was upgraded to Windows 10 a couple of years ago. Starting last week I suspect after a Windows update, it is showing a "Activate Windows" message.


    The Settings-Activation page shows error 0xC004F012.


    Using the Troubleshooting link gives error "Something prevented us from communicating with our activation servers0xc0020036"


    I used a utility to get my OEM product key, and tried to use in Settings-Update & Security-Activation-Activate Windows Now-Change Product Key. I got error "The product key you entered didn't work0xc0020036".


    I have reset Windows twice, from Settings-Update & Security-Recovery-Reset this PC as well as Windows Security-Fresh Start. Nothing worked.


    Please help!


    -Anika

    :)

    Windows 10 will not activate Error code 0x803F7001

    Possibly there can be the problem with Microsoft activation Server, so your Windows 10 is not activated. In this scenario, you need to wait and verify if it is the issue from Microsoft’s side. But if you are getting error code 0x803f7001, you can also try these steps:

    1. Open Settings app. Then go to Update and security > Activation screen > Change product.
    2. Type your Windows edition product key and click Next.
    3. You’ll get We couldn’t activate Windows error message.
    4. Retry steps 1-3 then type your 25-characters unique product key.
    5. Wait for the process to complete, Windows 10 is activated.
    Hope something helps this problem

    Windows 10 Activation Error: 0xC004F034

    Hi Greg,

    This error code is usually caused by a problem with the product key. For better assistance, we would like to clarify how you got the Windows 10 Pro? Is it supplied by a company?

    As an initial troubleshooting step, we suggest that you run the Activation troubleshooter and try activating Windows 10 Pro again. To run the Activation troubleshooter, follow these steps:

    • Click the Start button and select the Settings
      icon.
    • Choose Update & Security from the list.
    • Select Activation in the left pane of the window.
    • Click Troubleshoot.

    If your Windows 10 Pro is supplied by a company, we recommend that you get in touch with your organization's support for assistance with the activation.

    We'll be waiting to your reply.
