Hi,

I have had several mobos go belly up. I make sure that any replacement mobo (with cpu, RAM) has the same chip set as the original mobo, ie VIA, SIS etc. I have found that the drivers are close enough for the machine to boot into XP and then just load the new mobo drivers. I can't recall any need to re- activate.

Also there was a thread some time ago that explained how to avoid re-activation, to do with the wpa.dbl and wpa.bak files.
