ALright heres the deal, i got my computer about 2 years ago, it came with the Windows XP disk and the serial #(on a sticker on the computer), now it came to pass that i needed to reinstall windows, so without thinking i removed the sticker from my case so i chould type in the serial #, then i put the sticker in my drawer in safe place, unfortunatly my mother cleaned out my drawers and threw away the sticker with the serial #, so later i needed to reinstall windows, so i used my Windows XP disk to reinstall , but not having a serial # i used the serial # off of my grandmothers computer, now that be fine because i was fine with reinstalling windows XP every 30 days, but now i need to activate it, but im fearing activating it with my grandmothers serial, it fails with the internet activation,
so i was wondering can i activate windows over the phone while using my grandma's serial #? will it work if i tell them i got a new computer or changes components, so i reinstalled windows? since i used my windows XP disk will using a different serial # effect the activation? and is there any other problems that may arise from this?
