I've had my samsung laptop over a year which was pre installed with windows 8. Since upgrading to 8.1 via windows updates my pc is now saying my operating system is not activated,. I downloaded belarc to find my serial key and when I tried to activate it I just got a message saying could not activate with this key. Anyone have any ideas please as it's getting frustrating and feel like just getting a full copy of windows 7.

I posted this on your other thread. You could try - open run (windows key + R) and type wsreset.exe and press enter
