Hi there!  I literally bought a Cyberpowerpc yesterday and was very happy until I tried to customize my locksreen.  It said that windows was not activated, the same error code that you had.  I'm not sure if anyone has suggested this yet, but I went into Start and search "activate" and went into "see if Windows 10 is activated."  I went into there and pressed change product key.  On the side of my PC was a little sticker that had my product key on it.  I entered that and done!  It said that Windows 10 was successfully activated!  

I hope this works if anyone is still having problems Smile

P.S. I didn't buy my PC straight from this website, I'm not sure if that makes a difference.  I bought mine at Best Buy

How much did you pay for it from Best Buy? You can get a much better deal if you custom build a system here. It's said 1000 times every year but off the shelf PC's will come with Standard Power supplies which really put your system at risk of serious damage.

I'd honestly recommend taking it back and custom building one here with the help of the senior members on this forum.

Did any ones activation problems miraculously disappear after a few days?

I've had my system for almost a month, entered the activation code without problems when it was delivered now all of a sudden I have this damn watermark in the lower right hand corner.

Just in case anyone else has the same problem as me. There is now a 'scratch card' style sticker with 15 of the 25 digits showing. You need to scratch off the gray bar covering the rest of the product key.

Dang dude, your commenting on a "year old" post..........................

People

When you post, please start your own thread. This thread is "several years old". trying to run back and forth to discern what is relative or not is a pain.................
