Hey all,


Recently I've bought and changed a few rig parts because of hardware failure, but now I keep getting the message that I need to re-activate my Windows 7 Ultimate OEM. Logical, because I changed hardware, but a colleague of mine @work told me that I should call Microsoft support and ask them if they could re-activate my serial key. Is this possible and how show I do/ask this? I would be crazy and it would be absurd to buy yet another Microsoft Windows 7 x64 OEM...

Thanks in Advance,

Give Microsoft a call, I believe they will be able to assist you. As long as your Windows is legit it shouldn't be a problem to get it re-activated.

Have you tried to activate over the internet? Some times it will work aslong as you do not have a Dell/Gateway/HP/Etc. version of windows.

If you got a OEM form a small computer store or a place like Newegg you can reactivate over the phone.

If you have a Dell/HP/Gateway/Etc. version of Windows you will not be able to activate it thru the internet or phone. You will have to buy a new version.
