just started my compaq laptop and received message:
Due to significant changes to hardware windows needs to be reactivated.
It reactivated online OK but
Being a laptop nothing has been changed to the hardware so why did I get this message?

Did you get any drivers update via Microsoft windows updates? Could be that.
