When you purchase a branded computer it is bundled with OEM Version (Original Equippment Manufactures). These Operating Systems are designed such a way that you can use it in only one computer, so when you try to add or remove any hardwares or make any hardware change eg Hardisk, Motherboard etc, it will consider it as new computer and hence automatically go to trial mode which will ask you for a product key. Now, the only option to retain the full version of the OS is to perform a full system recovery using Recovery CD provided by the manufacturer. If you havent created, then I suggest you to contact Acer tech support & get one.
