Unable to Activate window

HP Recommended
HP Laptop 17
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

 I am unable to activate windows.

I get the troubleshooting screen and nothing, Server unavailable.
  I don't see a product key anywhere in the box or on the system itself.

Is there a way to get the product keey off the system?? 

   Thanks in advance

Install the free showkey plus app from the Microsoft store so you can see the OEM product key in the BIOS.


Get ShowKeyPlus - Microsoft Store


See if you can activate W10 by changing the 'Installed key' to the OEM key from the report.


You can change the product key by going to Settings>Update & Security>Activation>Change Product Key
