    Before proceeding, ensure you have the necessary administrative permissions to make changes to your school Microsoft account. If you're not sure, contact your school's IT department for assistance.

    Use a computer or smartphone to log in to your school Microsoft account from a web browser. Go to the Microsoft login page (https://login.microsoft.com/) and enter your school email address and password.

    Click on your profile picture > "Account settings." > Look for sections under "Security," "Devices," or similar headings.

    In the list of devices associated with your account, find the disabled Windows laptop. It should be marked as "disabled" or "inactive."

    Click on the disabled laptop entry and look for a "Re-enable" or "Activate" button. Click it to reactivate the laptop.

    Follow on screen instructions to proceed.
