Windows Key not working after installing new motherboard

Upgraded my mptherboard and cpu a few days ago, when i turned my pc on i noticed a popup that said activate windows. when i went to the settings it said that my key was already being used by a pc. anyway around this without calling microsoft? 

what version of windows are you running?If latest version of win 10, you can run a troubleshooter (see https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/20530/windows-10-reactivating-after-hardware-change ( but you may need to call them anyway)its likely the PC your key thinks its tied to is your old PC.
