I recently had only my motherboard replaced, and nothing else was touched.
After I got my computer back from the shop, the activate Windows bubble
appeared. I did not do anything because I thought that it would go away. All
I had was a new motherboard placed in. Windows works fine and all my programs
and stuff are the same. When I try to put in my cd key for Windows XP Home,
it keeps telling me that I have an invalid cd key and will not let me
activate it. Please help me solve this problem.

If they key fix does not work. The shop did not image your hard drive
correctly.

Call Microsoft and tell them what you did. They will probably give you a
activation key to use.
