@rk1041 -- MIcrosoft uses a "point" system to monitor changes to your hardware since you first "activated" Windows. Changing a disk-drive should only score ONE point, while changing the network adapter will score THREE points. If your score gets too large -- FIVE? SEVEN? -- you will be asked to reactivate.
Have you made other hardware changes since Windows was activated?
You may need to reinstall Windows, and then try to "activate" again.
