    The interface show Activate Windows when the unit idle about 1 hours


    Hi everybody,
    After install the Windows 8 OS, when the units idle about 1 hours, the units go into S3, and manual wake up the units. But the interface show the words: Activate Windows. What's wrong? Maybe I should input the key to activate the OS. However, what's the key I can get?

    Please open an Elevated Command Prompt window (in Start, type 'Command' - a Command Prompt icon will appear, right-click on it, and select Run as Administrator)
    At the Prompt, type
    Licensingdiag.exe -report %userprofile%\desktop\report.txt -log %userprofile%\desktop\repfiles.cab
    (note the spaces!)
    two files will be put on your desktop -
    open the 'report.txt' file in Notepad, and copy/paste the results to your response - you can ignore the repfiles.cab file for the moment, as it's only backup data


    That should give us an idea of what's going on.

    Hi NoeIDP,
    What can I understand the words: copy/paste the results to your response! And where I should paste the result ?

    1) To open an Elevated Command Prompt Window (the CP window),
    click on Start, All Programs, Accessories then right-click on Command Prompt, and select Run as Administrator. Accept the UAC prompt.



    2) To run the commands easier, highlight the block of commands, and right-click on the highlight select Copy. In the CP Windows, click on the black/white icon at top left select Paste. The commands will run but may not complete the last command, so hit the Enter Key once.



    3) To copy the results... click on the Black/White icon in the top left, and select Edit... 'Select All', and hit the Enter key - then use Ctrl+V or r-click+Paste to paste it into your response.

    Hi NoeIDP,
    Thanks for you reply in time, I have known your meaning! But when the interface occurred, where can I paste the data into the response?

    Ah - so the system isn't even letting you get to a Start interface?

    In that case, I'm in the dark here, as much as you. You should be able to use the standard Key(s) for the system
