Friends,

I was using windows XP Pro. on my machine. Suddenly motherboard got problem
and no more display I bought new motherboard and processor, and format my
hard disk to install a fresh windows XP Pro. With the same Product key I
installed windows but once I went to Activate windows by using Internet I got
this Message:
“Activate Windows
Product Key
According to our records, the number of times you can activate Windows with
this product key has been exceeded. Please enter a different key, and then
click Retry. The 25-digit product key can be found on the Certificate of
Authenticity (COA) label attached to your computer or Windows documentation.
It should look similar to the following example:”
Then there is an example of picture and at the end after some more info
there is a Message Number :45092.

I am wondering why it happened coz I am using same machine and currently I
am not having the old win running. Is there a simple way that if I format my
machine 10 times I can install and successfully activate windows without any
problem?

Waiting for your input.

Thanks

Saine

Instead of activating over the internet, call MS. They'll help you sort it
all out.

Simply choose the option to activate by phone.
Call Microsoft at the displayed number, usually done in about 5 minutes.

The reason the activation failed is due to hardware changes (i.e.
motherboard), which prevented the on-line activation from validating that
this install is onto the original machine. Like Jupiter Jones said. you will
need to activate by phoning Microsoft.
