    I recently purchased a new mobo, ram, cpu etc. Decided to switch hdd over and couldnt get past the log in screen. So i reformatted my hdd and now everytime i try to put my code in, it says my limit for my key hs been exceeded. Im at a loss, im not running my other pc anymore so i dont understand why it wont let me just enter it. Do I need to purchase a new key, or is there some way of reseting the key.

    thanks in advance

  • There are three types of Windows Licenses (Retail, OEM, and Volume) and two of can be used on consumer PCs (Retail and OEM).

    Retail comes in the full box, with a manual. These are typically purchased on their own at retail. These licenses may be moved to new "PCs" (the definition of which I'll get into later) as long as you move it from the old PC (because Windows can stop working in unusual ways, there is no "deactivation", but if you activate repeatedly in a short span you may not be allowed to do for a while).

    OEM  (Original Equipment Manufacturer) licenses are cheaper, and are typically the CD only in a sleeve, having either the manufacturer name on them or "For distribution with a new PC only". They come with a nonremovable sticker to put on the case, with the license key on it. This is one way the "permenant" nature of the license is emphasized. OEM copies can only be reactivated on the same PC they were first activated. Stuff breaks, people upgrade, etc. which adds up "points", and if a certain threshold of hardware changes occurs, you will be asked to reactivate. They are not supported by Microsoft (they are supported through your OEM).

    Now, you may be allowed to reactivate. BUT, Microsoft considers the motherboard the PC in license terms. If you put in a new motherboard, you can't use your Dell OEM copy of Windows- it properly refused to reactivate. If you change your motherboard, Windows will ask for reactivation.

    In semi-rare circumstances, Microsoft may reactivate Windows OEM copies. Thy

    Unfortunately, this means you're going to have to purchase a new OEM/Retail copy of Windows or move back to your old Dell motherboard to be genuine.
