Extract from SecuROM FAQ (https://support.securom.com/faq_pa.html):

2.4 What happens if I change my hardware (e.g. I bought a new graphics card)?


There is flexibility (set by the publisher, but defaults to 60%) of allowed
hardware changes before a new activation is required.

A re-activation is necessary, after re-formatting a HDD and new Windows setup,
as well as after creating a new Windows User account. For software changes, the
SecuROM™ User Data are stored on two positions (Windows registry and the user
APPDATA folder).

Note: The Product Activation servers differentiate between activations on same
and different PCs.

I'm a bit unsure if I get the "same PC" case or not, because Square told be I
got one (1) more activation, but I've managed to activate twice now... Anyway
I'll probably be revoking before shutdown from now on, don't want to risk
another lock-out right now.
