    Septik, I googled the word alimentation, no computer term shows up. You must mean the motherboard. In that case, without a call to Microsoft, you won't become genuine.

    Just call them and explain the situation. Be polite & don't argue with the rep. There's a good, but not guaranteed chance that you'll be re-activated. You'll have to follow some instructions given to make it genuine. Usually by typing in a long string of numbers & letters, is the way it works.

    Best of Luck,
    Cat

    What he means is, they will provide you with a new, genuine product key. Depending on if you're talking to a real person and who it is, the process could take some time but that's the general idea. It has saved the day for me many times. You'll be asked to give your product key, and then they'll give you a new one.
