Windows Activation issue

  1. 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:â€
    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.

  3. 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.
