Give Microsoft a call, they can fix you up over the phone. I did it when a BIOS update caused the windows activation on my oem system to de-activate. Took less than 10 minutes.

If it has already been activated before it won't accept the key because it has already been used / being used.

As said above, give Microsoft a call and they will give you a new product key.

Good Luck,
