    A question for you guys n gals...

    If I make changes to my system hardware, then do a fresh install, will i need to call Micro-twits to try to explain why I need another registration key. As I understand it, the s/ware takes a 'snapshot' of your setup, the uses the data from that to create your key, meaning that once it is registered, you can't install on another machine (or a changed one).

    Is this correct, or am I missing something?

    Any hints/answers ppl?

    the DVD failed, and the notebook went back to the makers to be repaired. they replaced it.

    i was just wondering on a general level too, whether you can make changes to hardware without re-registering.

    Yeah, depends on how much hardware was changed.

    Thx ppl, I thought as much. Guess Microsoft are gonna have to listen to a lot of reasons why ppl want a new key. i know a lot of us regularly clean install/change hardware.

    Hmmmmmm.....wonder if i can find a fix for that particular problem???????!!!!.........;)
