Windows Activation Problem
I just formated my hdd and reinstalled windows. When it booted up i installed my wireless card driver and successfully activated windows. Then i installed my graphics card driver, my motherboard driver and my soundcard driver and then restarted my computer.
When it booted up a message appeared that said "Significant changes have occured with your hardware and Windows will need to be reactivated with in the next 3 days." (thats not exactly what it said but its pretty close). So then i opened the activation utility and attempted to activate windows.
This time it said "According to our records, the number of times you can activate Windows with this product key has been exceeded. Please enter a different product key, and then click retry."(that is exactly what it says).
So does this mean that since i installed some drivers i have to buy a new copy of windows? This is about the 4th time ive reinstalled this copy of windows and i have never had this problem. So i guess i only have 3 days till i have to buy a new copy of windows.
Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
