    Need more info. What caused your PC to show it was not activated? Did you just recently reinstall Windows 8.1 for some reason. If its an OEM embedded key and its for the Core edition it will not work in the Pro edition.

    Download above program - you can check your product key and it will tell you the version of windows it is for..

    You have Pro install and the product key you have, may not be a Pro key
