    Is windows 8 activated or not?


    Whenever my pc boots up, it always tells me to activate. When i click "go to settings" button, it will be directed in settings but displays "page outdated". I checked control panel. What's the problem and how am I going to solve it? I can't personalize my PC since this problem occurred.

    Windows 8.1


    I see the CRYQH on the end of your current license key and that could be indicative of a few different things. However, I can tell you that your license is not permanent and it will expire. Good luck.

    Is this a OEM manufacturer's PC with Pre-installed Windows 8?
    If YES.
    Return to OEM manufacturer for a UEFI/BIOS firmware repair.
