Windows 7: Invalid product key

Invalid product key

Just under a month ago I upgraded MB, CPU, memory etc., and bought a Windows 7 oem.
When I installed it accepted my product key and all was fine until last evening when I was faced with a window stating that hardware had changed and I need to re-activate and now it doesn't accept my product key. All I have done since install is OC.
