    You may have a generic key installed that is in the grace period. Some parts of Windows will report activated but in fact only really means genuineness (a default key is genuine but not able to activate) - other parts report the activation per se..as in system properties.

    Please post a WDT report in order to check.

    Please Read: Activation troubleshooting

    The issue is firstly, that it won't activate with that key (*****-*****-8F6P2-448RF-CRYQH) - the second is a tampered licence file, that needs to be fixed - run sfc/ scannow to verify first.

    Then enter your Win 8 key ( if the laptop cane preinstalled with Win 8, get the OEM key with ShowKeyPlus) and use that key on the screen that says activate with a new key.

    If it still fails activation with the new key, post a new diag. report.
