OEM W7 - Replacing with same MOBO RRS feed

  • Question

  • My Asus Mobo just died, just after 2 months. I am using W7 OEM

    I plan to send to the shop, (still under warranty) and get new replacement, the same mobo model (not upgrading, other part still intact.

    Will I encounter problem with the licensing with my oem 7?

  • If the replacement motherboard is the same make and model, you should be able to reactivate.  If not, use the "activate by phone" method:

    1. Click on the Start button and in the Start Search box type in: slui.exe 3 and click on the icon that appears.

    2. Type in your Windows 7 25-character product key.

    3. Follow the instructions for phone activation (no charge).
