Hi:

 

If your PC came with Windows from HP, the product key should be in the BIOS of the PC.

 

Install the free Showkey Plus app from the Microsoft Store and it will show you the Windows product key in your PC's BIOS.

 

ShowKeyPlus - Microsoft Store Apps

 

There should be an Installed key and an OEM key.

 

If the installed key is different from the OEM key, change the installed key to the OEM key in the PC settings menu and you should be able to activate Windows.
