    Windows expired post factory reset of the system


    I had reset my system few months back and post that it seems my system was running on Windows 10 pro. For three years its been running on Win 10 and after reset it shows me license is expiring and today its expired. I got my system with pre installed Windows 10 and I believe the factory reset must have changed Windows key. Can you help me to restore my windows ?Thanks a lot !!

    :)

    Unable to perform a system reset

    Hi,

    A factory reset is a way to restore a device to its original system state. To better isolate your concern, we'd like to ask the following questions:

    • Have you tried backing up your important files and check if you can perform factory reset?
    • Why do you want to perform a factory reset in your laptop?

    Meanwhile, you can also follow the steps provided in this article:

    It will let you restore from a system restore point or go back to the previous version of Windows.
