notification keeps asking for a product key

Update sucks s7 8.1 to 10, notification of now repeat myself that I need a product key


I would try to contact the customer support their (of Microsoft) in link below.

Or I just re - install Windows 8.1 and then try again.

Your Windows 10 says "activated" when you go to settings > update and security > activation?

Edit: If you go back to 8.1 for Windows, you can try this first:

If this does not work, you can try if you did not have a recovery of Windows 8.1 factory default USB drive before upgrading to Windows 10:

And as a last resort, you can buy Acer factory default recovery media:

  • Why it asks for a product key?

    I'm trying to connect my laptop and it keeps asking me for a product key.  I've had my laptop for about 4 years, they they run out or something?


    ·          Did you do any hardware or software changes before this problem?

    ·          It seeks to activate or asks of each boot product key upwards?

    a. open system by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking system and Maintenance, and then click System.

    b. under Windows activation, you can see your activation status. You can also change your product key by clicking on change product key.

  • New HDD installed - Windows constantly asking for the product key

    HARD drive broke down, so I got a new HARD drive installed in the workshop for repairs a few months ago. Everything was fine until recently when Windows keeps always ask the product key to activate Windows. It is said that the license expires Dec. 27.
    Do you know where to find this key?

    If your laptop has Windows 8 or higher, Microsoft codes the license on the hard drive rather than put a sticker on the base. Sounds like the repair people could have used a dubious copy to reinstall it on the new hard drive. Microsoft may allow you to report it as pirate software, but I'm not sure they'll give you a free copy. The other alternative is to contact ToshIba to buy a complete set of recovery disks, or take it back to the shop.

  • I try to use windows excel for windows vista and am asked for a product key. How can I find out what order to use the product?

    I try to use windows excel for windows vista and asks me to enter a product key. I am the sole owner of the computer but have no installation CD for recharge Excel. How can I find out what order to use the product? From now the product doesn't let me do anything. Help, please!


    Did you pay for Office (including Excel) in a packaging separated when you bought your computer?

    Office is not included with your purchase of computer for free.

    Most new computers come with a trial version of Office that lets 'x' number of days usuage.

    After this test times out, you will have to buy Office.

    And the product key on the computer case or laptop for the operating system, not for the desktop Suite.

    Here is the link for the Microsoft Store to Office products:

  • During the new installation of xp pro, the program never asked for the product key or what type of network installation.

    XP pro ie8 32 bit svc pk 3.

    during a new installation, most of the steps was OK, however, my product key was not for and type of network was not.

    As the third so clean installation I did, do you think the pc is to remember my preferences?

    Thanks for any help.

    I think that when you install XP and turn on the first time, Microsoft collects information from your system during this process to develop a signature of material that goes with your license and store it away.  Of course, they do not collect any personal information :)

    They do it so that if someone takes your XP installation license and tries to apply it to another computer (it is piracy) that the installation would not activate as your activation must match your hardware.

    If someone tried to install and activate your license on another machine with a different set of hardware, MS would say, wait a minute - this license has already been activated on another machine, and he could complain.  Then someone has some ' splaing to do.

    I suspect that in your facilities in 2nd and 3rd, MS takes a look at things and said... this material signature and the license already go hand in hand, that nothing has changed here, so it is not necessary to activate again, all right.

    This is why, if one day you need to replace your motherboard and reinstall XP, even if you have everything and it's all legitimate, you will probably have to reactivate again since the signing of material would be completely different for this license that MS remembers the first activation.  A few small hardware changes, that you can get away with, but if the number of points collected to compensate for the signing during the initial activation is too different, you will need help activating.

    In this case, if things are legitimate, you can call MS activation team, and if you can convince them that there is no hacking involved and you just have to change your motherboard, they work with you to get your reactive stuff.

    Since you are looking at AUMHA, they have a writing little upward about it here, but there are official documents of Microsoft you can read also ('points' and how they work):

I bought it in August last year and this is the first time that I need help, but you would have thought that they would have made it easier to the needs of customers!

    Thank you.


    > Home Office thing
    Nice description ;)

    In any case, I think you mean the version of Microsoft Office that is preinstalled on your laptop. As far as I know that s only a trial version of it and that means you need to buy a version of office if you want to continue using it.

    If you n t buy a version of desktop, you can t more use it.

    Finally, and especially if you have several problems, you should contact a Toshiba instead authorized service provider directly.

  • Missing for windows product key

    How can I get a new product key to run windows, because old one rubbed off

    I got my laptop fixed Windows micro center has been reinstalled and now the program asks me a product key my laptop is two years old, the number is rubbed off. What should I do?

    Moved from feedback

    Original title: DBMS


    Why don't take you back to where you fixed it; It is the sensible thing to do.

    You do not tell us your operating system, but they are all similar.

    You can contact your computer manufacturer and ask them to send you a set of recovery disks.

    They should do this for a small fee.

    "How to replace Microsoft software or hardware, order service packs and replace product manuals.

    You have probably destroyed this method when the relocation is already made.

    And if you have never received a recovery disk when you bought your computer, there should be a recovery Partition on the hard drive to reinstall Vista on how you purchased your computer.

    The recovery process can be started by pressing a particular combination of the key or keys at startup. (Power on / start)

    Maybe it's F10, F11, Alt + F10, etc., depending on the manufacturer.

    Ask them to the proper key sequence.

    The methods above resettlement generally do not require allows you to provide a product key during Installation, the recovery process uses the Installation product key factory to activate automatically during the resettlement process.
