    I found a MS troubleshooter program, that wiped out Win update to no updates, no history, just spinning there looking for updates. guess I'll reboot and try looking again. fun night. thanks for saki.

    2 hours of searching for new updates, maybe this Microsoft Troubleshooter was a mistake.

    I think any changes to hardware beyond additional storage drives requre the liscence to be reactivated for lack of a better word as tera tike said

    Managed to get into Safe Mode/ System Recovery Options. Ran: Memory Diagnostics and System Restore to 7 March. waiting for results
    . May pull the new memory and test that.

    Dont repurchase windows... follow the instructions i messaged you then download the installation media to a usb thumbdrive

    There should be a option to repair windows when you boot from the thumbdrive

    So. Do you have the white window pane icon in your system tray for a free upgrade to Windows 10?

    Might want to consider it.

    Not ready for another OS. That MS site says the Key was by a manufacturer?? The Win 7 is on a WD HD, I thought someone just pulled the old one out and put this in and loaded from a retail disc. I'll see what else I can figure out.

    Have you attemped to contact the customer service from the company that built it because its from the manufacturer? They may be able to help because it isnt from retail copy, you may also be able to get assistance from microsoft's customer support

    Just a note, I figured how to uninstall updates. On April 10, I started to delete the March updates and say a April 10 windows update there. How it got there ?? I did uninstall all of march, reboot and still can't download updates. I bought a third party 'Win 7 System Re-install DVD', but I am leery of trying it yet.
