Reloading windows


I have a powerspec computer about 6 years old with windows 10 pro. I want to reset back to original to erase what is on it. How can I do this. I don;t have the Windows disk or the product id to reactivate windows. It is currently activated.

    You can press and hold the shift key and restart the computer, it will take you to a screen that will allow you to reload the computer that way, or you can do a Google search for "Windows Media Creation Tool" it will take you to a site where you can download and create the installer for Windows 10 and reload it with that, activation will not be an issue and a code will not be needed. Then just download the drivers from PowerSpec's website

  • Thank you for your help it worked perfectly. I was just nervous that would have to buy a new copy of windows because I had no disk and no activation numbers. It’s all on the computer.

    We flash your license key into the firmware when the system is built. If you were to do a clean install of Windows, it won't ask you for a key. It'll auto detect your OS version during the install and skip that entire portion. It'll activate automatically once you get online.
