    Hi there,

    I've had an X6800 processor die on me the MB seems fine, does anyone know
    will the replacement for it cause problems with the OEM activation?

    Many thanks, Tim

  2. You may have to reactivate.
    This may require you to do this over the telephone and the automated process
    may fail - in that case just stay on the line a person will give you the
    activation details you need.
    Takes 5 minutes max.

    I changed my processor from a Pentium D (dual core)
    to a Pentium XE (dual core with hyperthreading) and
    had to go through the phone activation to get the
    maching running again.
