    Okay, So I clean installed Vista H.P. from XP (had to clean install because
    going from 32->64-bit), Activated and everything was fine. Decided to
    purchase a SLI-ready motherboard, and due to significant hardware change i
    had to install vista again. My problem now is that I have 22 days to activate
    however the activation program is telling me my Key Code is already in use.
    How can i get my key code reset without having to pay the $59 to call
    Support??? (It says I have no free supports left)

  2. When you are told this select the phone activation option, call the
    number and explain you changed motherboard. They'll give you the codes
    to reactivate.

    When you try to activate, it will offer options to activate by phone. Do
    that, it will not cost a thing.

  5. You can get started with phone activation by typing "slui.exe 4"
    (w/o the quotes) in the Start Search box in the Start Menu and pressing Enter.
    The phone activation process takes about 6 minutes.

    the program is slui.exe
    the 4 is a parameter

    you can also hit Winkey-R
    and type "slui 4" in the command box (no quotes)

  8. Type in: slui.exe 4 in the "Start Search" box,
    not the "Search" box. It's right above the
    Vista blue start button when you click on it.
