So i've been using my desktop for a couple years now with my copy of xp workin seemlesslly(or at least as much as xp can). Recentally ive only used it for burnin dvds since ive been using my laptop as my main comp...anyways long story short.I turn on my desktop today to find a suprise, a window saying that my hardware has changed since I last installed windows and i need to activate it again.What fun, after all I havent touched the inside of my computer in more than half a year.
Anyone have ANY idea about how this could have happend? Or a way to solve it minus the activation?
Id like to try anything i can before i result to having to activate it again(im not even sure if i will be able to if i have to lol)
As I said before I havent touched the inside of my comp in forever, the last non dvd burning thing i did to it was ccleaner, but i dont see how that would do this.
I dont even know if microsoft would fix this for me over the phone, if someone knew the answer to that too id be happy.
