ok i tried to use KillDisk to erase my hard drive so i can install windows all over again.. but it didnt go as smoothly as i thought i would...

1 thing is that the new windows installed on the other partition of my hard drive (since i had part of my hard drive which was unallocated).

Don't worry about the activation thing. You don't need to do it. Nothing happens to your computer, you can still use Windows. I'm using an un-activated version of Windows right now and have been doing so for 6 months already.

Sounds like a call to M$ is in order. They can issue you a new number, if they believe you...

Setup the computer the way that you want it setup, then call Microsoft if the activation this recurs. They'll be able to see the info about your system, and will see that nothing has changed with the hardware and should give you this huge set of numbers to fix the activation thing.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
