    normally you don't need any key to re-activate your deafult OS, try to click on activate and check if it connects to the internet and activate automatically.

    Thanks for your attention, I try this but this error: This Product Key doesnt work. You need to get in touch with the store or company you bought windows from.

    please check your BIOS version and try to update, link to version 2.17:

    re-apply the recovery, boot pressing ALT+F10 and reinstall the OS.

     

     

    if you still have this issue, please contact your Acer support service.

    no. that didnt work. i tried a reinstal of the the win 10. i downloaded a tool that made the job. now its working and didnt ask me product key. it just made a clean install of win 10.

  • Now do three things:

    - use a third party tool such as from NirSoft to retrieve and save all keys

    - use a 16GB or larger flash drive to create a recovery disck

    - use a NTFS external backup drive at least as large as your C: drive to create a system image.

     

    and store in a safe, cool, & dry place.

    Hi,
    Product key is embedded in BIOS, you can use a third party tool to find it or just give Acer Service centre in your region a call, you could also try activating by phone.
    Get the tool information and tutorial from this link:https://community.acer.com/en/discussion/149323/my-windows-8-product-key
    To activate by phone:https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/help/15083/windows-how-to-activate

    @Abhi0306   Open the command prompt. Enter "wmic os get serialnumber" without the quotes. The output is the key. Jack E/NJ

    Sir my hardisk is new  old hard disk is dead  
  • JackEJackE Posts: 9,758ACE Trailblazer
    @Abhi0306   If you have Win8.x or Win10 installation media, it should be automatically activated since the Win8 key is embedded on the mainboard, not the old HDD. Jack E/NJ

    I hAVE ACER ASPIRE AT HOME IN THE BEGINING IT IS GOOD AFTER A MONTH It asking activation key if it nessary to prochase online

  • JackEJackE Posts: 9,758ACE Trailblazer
    @NOAH8209 Open the command prompt. Enter "wmic os get serialnumber" without the quotes. The output should be the activation key. If this activation key fails, then a licensed version of Windows was probably not installed.  Jack E/NJ
