    i tried a bunch of softmods and they all didn't work, I need to find a link on this forum to remove softmods (I know I saw it floating around earlier). I just found a link to a SLIC bios for my ASUS P5Q-E so I'm going to give that a try next

    VOATKtool..Google it and use it. It is very good. You may have to repair the MBR also. If you have a preactivated DVD, trash it goes..You need a clean DVD..

    thanks found voatktool and was able to let it give me another 15 days to activate. I actually did just do a repair MBR because I was removing XP from my Vista dual boot, and used my preactivated vista DVD to do that. That's when my activation/validation problems started. Will flashing to SLIC BIOS fix all my problems?

    edit: well apparently it did fix all my problems! OEM SLIC BIOS worked like a charm
