Windows 10: Windows key deactivated, after new mobo and cpu.
Windows key deactivated, after new mobo and cpu.
I get this message to activate windows but when I do it says that I "don't have a valid digital license or product key" error code 0x803f7001
Hello, I assume you mean you have a valid Win 10 license, and that now you have changed the hardware and it's not activated, you'd like to know what to do.
Can I refer you to:
How to Use Your Free Windows 10 License After Changing Your PCâ€™s Hardware
- see under the heading
How to Activate Your Windows 10 License After a Hardware Change
and otherwise suggest you contact your regional MS activation support?

Windows 10 will deactivate itself because you changed the motherboard. Since you changed the motherboard, it is now on a new computer.

I don't have Windows 7, 8, 8.1, or 10 licence, but I am early...
So, im not happy about that fact, Windows 10 deactivated itself. I can still use it but that big fat watermark in the bottom right corner is really annoying. So my question is: Is there a way to reactivate it? When trying to use some Windows...
Hi I have a problem. I upgraded my Windows 8.1 (key from Dreamspark) to Windows 10 in april. After RTM release, everything was OK, but I replaced my old motherboard (because it was just cheap shit and it just broke) to Sabretooth 990FX 2.0.
so on every boot up i get a anti virus is deactivated which pops up in lower right corner and disapear a split second after.
i got microsoft essential antivirus and malware anti as a secondary scanner
fire wall is on..
my friend also get that...
