  1. Windows Activation problem


    Hi,


    I recently built a new pc and I transfered my old windows license (it was a windows 7 Pro N Key).


    Everything was fine, but i needed to replace the Motherboard (since it was defective) I changed for the same model so I didn't reinstall windows.


    But now my pc claims that the key is not valid.


    Is there a way to solve this without buying a new key?


    P.S. I have another key that I got in my university years but windows doesn't even accept it.

    :)

    • Type slui 4 and hit enter.

    • Select the Country or
      Region.

    • Follow the on screen instructions.


    Hope this helps. Please respond if you have any further related query.

    Windows 10 1709 System Restore problems...


    That seems to be an attempt at Option 2 in the tutorial, which requires you to
    a. Boot to a command prompt (Did you?)
    b. You then seem to be mixing steps 3,4 and 5, thus your command is incorrect.

    I suggest Option 1 is easier.

    If you still have problems, please repost listing each specific step and saying which option from the tutorial you are using. Thanks.
