OEM lincese problem

After I have just installed a oem windows 2003 server to a pc for two week, My motherboard down suddenly. Then, I buy a new motherboard and start the windows. Windows tell me that my hardware has been changed. If I don't activate it by another lincese key, the windows can not be used after 3 days. What should I do? Must I buy a new software of oem windows 2003 server.

see this link for windows 2003 activation information:

You need to reactivate your software or it will stop working.
You should be able to either do this over the internet or phone (a phone number should have been displayed when it gave you the "please reactivate" message).

Hi huang_ck,
you have not asked for further clarification even after I prompted you to and yet you have awarded me a C grade.
I'm not sure if you realise that while 500 points is all you will award for this question there is a 1000 points difference to an expert answering a 500 point question  between and A and a C grade. See: http://www.experts-exchange.com/help.jsp#hi20

Could you please provide advice here as to how I could have received an A grade?

thanks,
AJ.
