My laptop is suddenly not activated and giving me error code 0xC004F074, despite owning it for over 4 years with no issues...

    Question

  • Hello, I have looked everywhere and tried out all the fixes I could find to try to rectify this problem. I've had my laptop for just over 4 years (a birthday gift from my parents) when it suddenly decided to remove it's activation about a month ago. I've run the standard fix a few times that I found online in several places (including here on Microsoft [https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows8_1-windows_install/error-code-0xc004f074-unable-to-activate-windows/239826b1-0d56-4565-baf0-8a5c407c31cc?auth=1]) but none of it has fixed this issue. When I got to the slui steps I tried both 3 & 4. The regular activation gives me the same error and the by phone activation says it's not available to activate by phone. Can someone please give me some advice on or a way to fix this issue? I would appreciate any useful help that can be offered.

    Thank you.
