So ever since I got my computer from CyberPower I have been getting these blue "Activate Windows" popups.
Needless to say, I'm fed up with them enough to come here.

So the popup is blue and it simple says to activate windows, so I click activate and I'm brought to a red and white activate windows screen with 2 options.

Activate Windows Online - Activate
And
Enter A Key

Then it shows my Product Key Info XXX-1234

Anyways, I click activate and it says "Windows Can't Activate. Try Again Later".

What can I do here?...

My windows disk doesn't have the KEY number on It , my PC was shipped with all my disks in the paper disk cases in a box.

Maybe the seller didn't put a genuine product key on the system.
If it didn't come with a key, then it might not be genuine. I suggest that you run the activation diagnostic.
