OEM edition help RRS feed

  • Question



    I have recently installed a new motherboard, ram, graphics card, powersupply, and cpu. Pretty much everything put my Harddrive and cd-rom drive. Before i installed it i did my product key through a keyfinder. When i started up My computer i had to go through the process of activated my computer as you might expect. So i called up and apperantly my key doesn't work so i called up support and they told me to do some other useless things. Please help i don't have money to buy another windows and I don't really want to pirate one.

    Thanks Emmett
