  1. Windows not Activating on my newly built PC


    Hi Community,


    I've been using an Intel Core i-5 4670K with an ASUS motherboard build for years (since 2013). Back then I was in university. The university portal gave the students access to official Microsoft products through their licence agreement with Microsoft. When Windows 10 officially launched in July 2015 I activated Windows 10 Pro (64-bit) on my Microsoft account through the key that I got from the university portal. Eversince I have been using this PC as my personal computer long after I graduated till now, November 2019.


    As the years gone by my PC slowly started to struggle to keep up with the lateset games and programs. So I decided it was time to build a new PC. This took place yesterday. I built a Ryzen 7 3700X with an ASUS X570-PLUS motherboard. So basically moving over from years of using Intel to AMD.


    The problem I'm now experiencing is that I cannot for the life of me seem to activate my Windows again on this newly built PC. I'm using the exact same Microsoft account. The message I get from the Microsoft Account tab is "Unable to activate Windows. We can't reactivate Windows on this device. Try again later." and I also get an Error Code: 0xC004F213.


    Can someone please assist me so that I can have my Windows active again on my new system like it was on my old one?


    Kindest regards,


    Marius

    :)

  2. Issues Connecting Newly Built PC to Ethernet

    I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the right section but I'm having issues getting my newly built PC connected to the Internet. I have an Ethernet cord plugged into my modem and into my PC but Windows is not detecting a connection. Any help is appreciated.

    If this is of any help, my MOBO is an MSI Z97 Gaming 5.
