XP Activation sucks (and is triggered by simply upgrading RAM)

This has happened a few times but I could never pinpoint exactly what I upgraded to cause activation to get triggered because usually I upgrade the video card AND RAM or some combination of things.  Anyway, went from 1GB of RAM to 2 GB of RAM and that triggered activation.  Luckily it worked out and I didn’t have to call in but still, it’s annoying.
