Unfortunately it appears that the system has pirated software.
Please get a legitimate copy installed and we'll be glad to help.
Here's suggestions on how to ensure that your version is legitimate: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/genuine
Please be aware that we may not be able to fix it (as the hacks that were done to activate it will cause the OS to behave differently than we expect it to). If that's the case, our efforts to help may just waste your time. Secondly, the forum rules prohibit assisting with pirated software - so the topic would be closed if that is the case.
As a courtesy, I will offer an analysis of your issues using the reports you provided.
I will not answer any questions about the analysis until the system is made legitimate.
If you do make it legitimate, please submit a new set of reports for us to check.
Just FYI, sometimes the owner won't know about this. So here's 2 scenarios that might ring a bell:
- if they had a "friend" help with the computer - and the "friend" installed a pirated copy.
- or they used a copy that they had from another OEM computer. The OEM license is tied to the hardware that it came from - so you can't just use it on another system (that means that it's pirated).
And here's the analysis:
Your UEFI/BIOS (version V8.4) dates from 2016. Please check at the manufacturer's website to see if there are any UEFI/BIOS updates available for your system. This is just in case there has been a more recent update.
FYI - W8 and W10 communicate more with the UEFI/BIOS than previous versions of Windows, so it's important to ensure that the UEFI/BIOS is kept up to date (and that outdated UEFI/BIOS' may be the cause of some compatibility issues).
Only 7 Windows Update hotfixes installed. Most systems with SP1 have 350-400 or more. Please visit Windows Update and get ALL available updates (it may take several trips to get them all).
The actual number is not important. Rather it's important that you checked manually, installed any available updates, and didn't experience any errors when checking or updating.
Beyond that, as you've already reinstalled Windows:
1) perform these free hardware diagostics: http://www.carrona.org/hwdiag.html
Be sure to complete ALL of the video tests.
2) Then, if the diagnostics don't find something - then perform this procedure: http://www.carrona.org/strpdown.html
