bfbc2 asking for serial again.. says "in use"

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
so i had my steam/bfbc2 on a separate drive, and im trying to hook it up to another rig, however its asking for the serial # again when i try to play on this new rig.. so i put in my email/login/pw, then i put in the serial # and it says its already in use... any ideas whats going on? do i need to reinstall it or something since it's a different rig?

Is it asking when you are actually in the game attempting to log in? If so it is an issue with the log in server. It will fix itself in an hour or two at most. It has happened to me once or twice before as well. It stems from the same issue as having your rank revert to one for short periods of time.

really? i guess ill try tomorrwo.. doesn't really make any sense though

so sometimes it'll ask you for serial # again, and when you put it in, it'll say "in use"? that's a server issue?

i thought it had something to do with me just plug n play'ing the drive on another rig
