Interesting. Just fired up mine after a few months. All is well. Did 
some OS updates, and still good. I'll put it to bed now, probably for a 
few more months.

Did you try activating it with your license key? What happens then? I 
had the same issue on a previous laptop, and the software required me to 
even call microsoft which I did, and the activation worked.
