Live the problem of blocking my laptop, I did not put your application to my laptop. But after replacing the HDD on SSD? After 12 months, my laptop was blocked. What should I do to unlock?

"On the unlocked computer, click HELP, type the 26 character Recover ID, and then click Get Recovery Code."  Where in the account to choose "Help"?
