    Activation problem


    Hi - I took the free upgrade from Win7 to 10. All worked fine. After a few weeks I now get the Activate Windows watermark. When I try to do this is settings in update and security nothing happens. When I go to Store - I get the something happened, unable to restore.

    I have changed the keyboard since the upgrade - would this be the reason I cant upgrade. I have not changed the motherboard or made any other changes

    Thank you for your help
