    windows xp wants me to reactivate windows because of hardware change? just because i pulled out my cd-rw to clean it and put it back in (btw now its reading cd-rw's just fine;) ) so ok i think thats alright i will just reactivate windows and life will go on but when i try to it says
    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 ass 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

    alright i will give them a call;) and i dont see why eather why removing a cd-rw and placing it back in would cause this never had it happen on any other computer i worked on let alone it being my own?
