    I have replied to your other post - the reason Software Protection Service can't run is due to the reasons I mentioned there.

    Windows 8.1


    Hi Superfly,

    I was wondering if you could help me out...
    a while ago i reinstalled windows because my laptop was getting slow.
    After reinstalling i immediately got the message to upgrade to windows 8.1 (from windows 8) and so i did.
    Now it's asking me to activate but it doesn't work.

    Here is my diagnostic report:

    Hi Lazlow

    Seems your upgrade to Win 8.1 did not execute correctly and a few files did nor install properly thus the 'tampered files' and 'service not available' errors. The upgrade process is flaky and best to do a clean install.

    The best advice I can offer is to re-install Win 8.1 using an iso download to make sure that the media is complete ( I think the media creator download tool checks the integrity after downloading).

    Why a download?!
    How can I trust it if this is not even a Microsoft site?

    Hi guys. I have an HP 2000 laptop with native Win8 Core. On Factory Reset, it will not activate, saying the key is blocked. I called MS and they said it was an HP problem. I called HP and they want $200-300 to fix it.

    I installed Win8.1 fresh on a blank drive to make sure it isn't an image problem: same result.

    OEM Edition: Win 8 RTM Core OEMM


    I fault HP on this, but the machine is 4 yrs old and they won't own the problem. Is there any solution? Thanks.

    Hi Paul

    Yup, that key is blocked... how it happened is the problem...


    It could have been installed on multiple PC's.... or the hardware has changed significantly on the current machine.

    Thanks, Superfly. The first sounds like a manufacturing error? The second I can't attest to, as I just bought the machine (in as-is condition). The only thing I can add is that the machine was really wrecked, like I've seldom seen. One rear corner was entirely broken off, top and bottom, and the palmrest near the touchpad had an outbound impact crack, which I can't figure out. Perhaps the impact broke something on the MB, which otherwise is performing perfectly?

    I've never seen this problem before. IAC I'm going to part the machine out and sell the MB as-is.
