Windows 7: DRM Issues after hardware upgrade

DRM Issues after hardware upgrade

Alright, so here's the deal: I spilled some acidic drink on the top of my computer and it leaked down to mess up and fry 1 of my graphics cards, motherboard, cpu, and tv tuner. So, I replaced them all and upgraded the cpu and graphics card.

When I came back into Windows, I had to reactivate it, and DRM is all messed up to where I can't even stream Netflix movies. I tried resetting the DRM folder, did not work. Tried reinstalling Silverlight, did not work.

I'm not sure what else to do here. Anyone know how to fix this?

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I have exactly same problem after upgrading MB/CPU/Memorys. I also tried to remove old DRM stuff, didn't help. Also uninstalled silverlight 4.x and installed silverlight 5.x - same problem still.

Is there any other solution to this than do a clean install?

Upgrade my hardware
I have a Pentium 4 @ 2.8ghz The spec sheet says I can have up to 4gb ram (4 slots available) It says I have 2 IDE connectors & 2 Sata connectors. If I upgrade the ram to the 4gb & get a 200gb SATA HD, will that make a pretty decent computer to use Windows 7 on ?
