Activate Windows 10 - New PC


Active Member
Hi All,

Recently changed over bits in my PC as my processor died so I have the same HD's but new mobo, processor and ram.

I had an original Windows 10 license installed before and now I keep getting a message saying I need to activate Windows?

Can't see how to work around this issue without buying Windows 10?

Give the support number a call and they should be able to sort it over the phone. Last it was an automated service, you need to enter a long number on your phone that Windows will give you when you select the option to activate it by phone.
