    ONLY if the COA and Key is for XP Pro can you change the Key to the one on the sticker – using the Product Key Update Tool http://windows.microsoft.com/en-GB/windows/help/genuine/product-key
     
    If it’s for anything else, then you will need to use the manufacturer’s Recovery disks to reinstall the OS – this will wipe the hard drive, so back up first!
