I have a laptop that's been acting up. (see here for details)
I'm hoping it doesn't come to this, but I may end up reinstalling Vista on it and was wondering what the procedure was for re-entering the license key. If I register the laptop again will Microsoft's online system squawk because the key has been used before? Do I need to call their installation 800 number and explain things? Hard to imagine they haven't heard a lot of false sob stories before so am not sure if that's the correct approach.
