Lets get you started on how to activate your windows software. When you were setting the laptop up, entering your username, account information etc you were asked by windows to enter the product key from the Windows 7 or Windows 10 sticker from the laptop into the activation box. If you are getting this warning message if looks like you havn’t done it or maybe skipped this part but dont worry its easy to resolve.

Step 1:

Firstly determine which Windows sticker you have on the laptop or computer so we can activate your windows software. It could be a Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 10. All of these keys will activate Windows 10 or Windows 11 installed on the laptop or computer.

The Windows 7 product key is located on a Windows 7 sticker under the laptop or it could be located in the battery compartment, which means removing the battery. The Windows 7, 8 and 10 product keys contains a set of 25 characters. Windows 7, 8 and 10 product keys work for windows 10 and 11, they are the same keys.
