Windows 10 Trouble : Can’t reactivate Windows 10 after Motherboard change.
Error Trouble : I’m having trouble reactivating Windows 10 after recently changing my motherboard. I tried using the troubleshooter and clicking on “I changed hardware on this device recently” and the message that popped up was “We can’t find any devices linked to your Microsoft account that can be used for reactivating the device you’re using right now. Make sure you’re signed in with the same Microsoft account you linked to the Windows 10 digital license on this device or try again later.” I think this is a bit weird since in my account manager under My Devices it shows both my old motherboard that Windows

How to Fix Can’t reactivate Windows 10 after Motherboard change. on Windows 10?

  1. New Motherboard is new computer. Do you have a retailed purchased License?

    If not then you must purchase one.

  2. Hi Irv_M,

    Good day! This is Jhakesong an Independent Advisor and I will be happy to assist you with this.

    I am sorry to hear about the inconvenience. Was your previous windows license purchased separately or it came with the computer? If it came with the computer, chances are that the license is OEM and it is non transferrable. If it is retail and you have gone through the activation troubleshooter, the next thing to do is to get in touch with Microsoft and have it activated by them.

  3. Hi,

     

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

     

    I appreciate the efforts in resolving this issue. I understand that you are unable to reactivate Windows after changing Motherboard and CPU.

     

    As you have mentioned that you have a retail license, if you have the product key with you, then you can use the product key to activate Windows on your computer. To do this, refer the steps mentioned below:

     

    Type command prompt in the search bar on the Taskbar.

    Right click on the command prompt icon and select Run as administrator.

    Type in the following commands and hit Enter after each command:
    slmgr -upk
    slmgr -cpky
    slmgr -ipk XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX (Replace XXXX with the product key)
    slmgr -ato

     

    However, the best point of contact will be the Activation team, as they will have the access to check your device and account to help you appropriately. Please refer the article Global Customer Service phone numbers to get the Customer support number as per your country.
