    Okay, I don't understand why you purchased a key for W10, when the upgrade is free for W7? Did you have Home and wanted Pro or something? Did you transfer your W7 OS to the new hard drive and then do the upgrade? Or, did you just clean install W10?

    Okay, so if it was working for about 3 months, then we can be pretty sure that it was activated. Once you have all your data backed up, let me know and we will start a repair install.
