Talshiare how did you install operating system and restore your files on your new hard drive? Also which operating system are you using?
If it merely complains running out of acticvations, simply contact support to reset them.
I had to re-install a whole new operating system on a brand new hard drive starting from xp pro all the way back up to Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit from my other installation disks that I had for my operating systems. Believe me it was a Royal Pain re-installing everything again and I had lost so much data ... believe me it has taught me to start backing up my files !!!!
