    Windows 10 Pro (10586.11) mysteriously became Not Activated


    My Windows 10 Pro (10586.11) mysteriously became Not activated this morning after returning from sleep. First, I tried restarting my computer which ended up in limbo. It really never completed restarting and it became stuck waiting for Shutdown. Finally had to hard restart with power button. After restarting completely this time it was still Not activated. I went to Activation in Settings and entered the generic Windows 10 Pro product key VK7JG-NPHTM-C97JM-9MPGT-3V66T and it is now showing Windows is activated. (Digital entitlement)

    It never occurred to me to do that. I just used the last known product key that worked for me.
