-URGENT PLEASE LOOK- I swapped my video cables, MS want me to reactivate Windows?
Ok, here's a recap of the acitvities leading up to this.
Today, I got up, turned on my computer, messed around on the net for about 15 minutes, and went to work. I didn't install anything or change anything. Came back a few hours later, and installed all the stuff that came with my DVD drive (Nero, etc. and I believe a firmware update). I didn't install the firmware, it tryed up I canceled it. Later, a few minutes ago, I changed my DVI output to VGA output to see the difference (and to prove to my dad VGA sucks). Booting up to VGA, I get a Windows must be reactivated...hardware has changed significantly. Significantly?
Boot up to DVI, still gives it! Windows XP support $35? Bugger that!
Now, I'm ok with reactivating...but I want a little info. Do I just activate like I did when I installed Windows with the same activation key? Isn't there a way I can talk to someone at Microsoft for free?
I'm a LITTLE mad I have to reactivate...but I know i have to.
By the way, I do own a legit copy of Windows. Its Windows Media Center 2005 OEM...a one pack.
