I purchased my ACER laptop at Microcenter about 5 years ago. I'm now being asked to activate my Windows. I now have a dark background that I can't change, because it requires activation of the Windows. Can Microcenter check my purchase record and provide me with the activation key?
Greetings. We wouldn't have product keys on file. Was this for a refurbished laptop?
Windows should automatically activate when you set your Acer computer up for the first time. If Windows does not activate automatically, you should try the instructions below to activate it. You must be connected to the internet for Windows to activate.
If the Windows Activation service is unavailable, it may not be possible to activate your copy of Windows 10 online. You can wait 12 hours and attempt activation again to see if the issue is resolved, or you can use the instructions below to activate immediately via telephone.
