Windows® Activation Issues in a System
What are the issues that can occur while activating Windows in a system?
Windows activation is the process that should be done by the users to avoid the issues like ‘Activation expired’ which results in less feature mode running of Windows Operating System. The primary issue experienced by the user is related with the product activation key. The user may forget the product or the key may lost. The key entered may be a wrong one or invalid at some circumstances. If the user used the same product key to install Windows Operating System on another computer at home, then the product key could not be used again on the first system for activating. In such cases, issues occur with the activation. Another issue that pertains while activating the Windows is related with the online solutions. The activation of the Windows can be done through online which is one among the option. But sometimes, the online activation fails and the user could not activate the Windows. The changes on the hardware components over the system also cause issues with the users to activate the Windows. The connection problems also occur while using the automated phone service for activating, while buying the new product key online, etc.
