  1. Windows Reactivation After Changing Equipment


    So I just installed a new cpu, motherboard and ram into my windows pc. After a couple hours I noticed a watermark asking me to activate windows, so I went to settings clicked troubleshoot, recently changed hardware, then I selected my device and it just says we are unable to reactivate windows. What do I do. I've had this computer and windows account for thee years, and aside from replacing my gpu a couple months ago this is the first time I have made a significant change to my hardware. Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    :)

    So I think that I messed up by not preparing my windows 10 for a software change. Could i just boot my system with the old motherboard, take the preparation steps and then try with the new parts?
