    my brother just messaged me over AIM saying that he needs a new cd key because he could only register his cd key twice because he bought a new hd and reinstalled xp. that being said, he already activated twice and now he says he needs a new one... my question is: does he really need a new one or what does he do to activate it again?

    Simple. Call Microsoft and tell them that you formatted one of your machines and need to reinstall..

    ..given that this is a legitimate copy. Otherwise expect men in black glasses and dark suits.
