You'll need to go into iTunes, and from the Store menu at the top, select "Deauthorize Computer...". This will actually deauthorize any computer that has been authorized to play your music, not just the one you're on, and allow you to start fresh authorizing computers. Now when you click on a song and it brings up the authorization error, just enter your Apple ID and password XXXXX was used to purchase the music.

You will need to reenter this information on any computer that was authorized before. Hope that helps, and good luck.
