i reformatted my computer yesterday due to viruses and all went very well. installed all neccessary drivers and activated successfully. I've got a legit windows xp key and the installation disc (i had activated successfully on the same comp numerous times).
However when i restart my computer, theres a message asking me to re-activate again within 3 days, this time i couldn't and there was a message that say "According to records, the number of times you can activate Windows with this product key has been exceeded....." I even tried using the telephone but no luck.
I merely restart my computer and this happened, the key were never used for other computers although last time i upgrade my mobo but nothing wrong happened...help pls i only got 3 days left. I tried calling Microsoft but then the staff only asked me to email to them my proof of purchase, COA, and the disc....
