Hello and Good Evening Everyone,
I have a nice laptop which is an Acer Aspire (Model V3-731-4473) that originally came with Windows 8.0 when purhcased about a year ago. A few months ago I upgraded it to Windows 8.1. When I turned it on today, I got a message requesting that it be activated. When I clicked the option to Active, an icon did spin around suggesting that an action was about to be carried out. However, it never did activate. There was another option which requested a Product Key Number. When I purchased this laptop, the operating system was pre-installed and did not come with any software accessories. With that said, I am wondering how I might can resolve this issue. The request did indicate that I have until December 24th to activate Windows 8.1. In the meantime, everything is still working great with this laptop. I just don't understand though why I am getting the request to activate Windows when it is suppose to already be activated. Perhaps the upgrade from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 had something to do with it.
Any shared input or suggestions for resolving the activation request will be greatly appreciated.
