    Default Computer Help

    I just finished installing a new hard drive however, when I turned the computer back on, I got a message that the hardware had changed and Windows must be reactivated in 3 days. When I went to reactivate windows, it said that the number of times windows could be activated had been exceeded. There's a toll free number I could call but I wonder if anyone else had gotten this before and what they've done to get through it.

    Any help? I'm not buying another copy of Windows XP

    You won't have to buy a new copy. Just call and tell them that you upgraded the drive and they will give you a new number to type in. It's pretty painless.

    Ok, I did that; works now. Thanks for all of your help

    P.S. The voice reconizing thing was kind of wierd to use though.

    Anyway, my new drive is a Hitachi Deskstar 160GB. Anyone use/have experience with this brand?
    Any good?
