Solved!

My windows license will expire soon

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion 15-cs1032tx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I Bought this laptop 2019 January. Now its going to expired windows 10. HP said its coming up with windows 10 Home Signal language OS. Normally HP gave for 2 years windows activations or what? Do I need to buy new license? I think windows 10 one time purchase we don't want to pay it again (Is HP windows license different?).  I'm trying to contact HP. But I can't find out any HP General mail address or customer mail address. Please advice

Hi:

 

The Windows license/product key in the BIOS should be good for as long as you own your PC, and don't replace the motherboard.

 

If you have not replaced the motherboard, you should not be getting that message.

 

Install the free showkey plus app from the Microsoft store and see if you need to change the product key to the OEM key that the showkey plus report indicates.

 

Get ShowKeyPlus - Microsoft Store

 

If you can't get W10 to activate, then I suggest you contact the HP executive team at the link below for further assistance.

OK...

 

So see if this works...

 

Go to Settings>Update and Security>Activation>Change Product Key.

 

See if changing the installed product key to the OEM key, allows you to properly activate Windows and have that expiring license message go away.
