I was experincing crashes, so i updated to latest Bios (Abit Fatal1ty FP-1N9 v 16 from the list on this forum) with Slic tested etc. I should have anticipated that this might change the activation, but I didn't. I now have 13 days to activate. Is there a way to overcome this without a full reinstall? I'm so hectic at the moment that I could be doing without the hassle of a reinstall! I did a search for this on the forum but forund nothing, so if it has come up before, apologies in advance!
