"Activate Windows" message recently appeared on my ~ 2yr old VivoBook. How do I reactivate Windows? 

  • Notebook was purchased NEW from Best Buy Canada. (not "open box") and came with Win 10 installed.
  • I have the original packaging and there is no Activation Code with it or on the laptop so I assume there is an embedded digital certificate but I cannot find any instructions on how to access this.

Any suggestions welcome. Thanks
