    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 PC’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.

    Look at the last option here for "You recently made a significant hardware change":
