Quote:
According to our recods, the number of times you can activate windows with this product key has been exceeded. Please enter a different product key, and thin click retry
ok it hits me how is this possable i only used this key on this computer and only once so how in the hell have i used it to many times???? (what has got into microsoft's *** for thiem to pull this bs?) after all i just removed my cd-rw cleaned it and put it back in. does anyone know what i should do? because it says i have to do it in 3days?!?!? so i think i need a anwser asap.

Hi N5638J
Well i am unsure as to why this has happened as the changing of a drive has no bearing on the act of activating windows. You will have to give them a call and explain and they will activate your copy of windows over the phone
