So very often I am getting a notice that pops up and sometimes its ever few mins or even moments asking me to go to settings to activate my key. The only things I have done to it is a few recoveries and installed a windows 10 preview. The laptop is not even a year all yet. I months at most. No CD or windows product key that I can find. Only serial number and model number listed.
Windows licences will expire on July 4th. This really is major BS.
So, since you did a rollback or system image restore, you probably need to reactivate. It's not a big deal. Go to Control Panel, System, and on the bottom right hand side of the System tab there should be a link to activate. Follow the instructions. The product key should be baked into the BIOS so it should activate automatically once you initiate the activation. If it doesn't, that link should provide you with a number to activate manually but you'll probably need to use magic jellybean to extract your current product key as the recorded message at Microsoft activation will ask for it.
