  •  

    I just installed Windows XP Professional onto my computer and it told me to activate it. I did so using the telephone option as it wouldn't let do it over the internet. Now when I try to log on, it tells me I have activate Windows but when I click ok it says that Windows is already activated. What can I do to fix this?

    No, it didn't work. It just made it so that you could activate windows over and over again instead of coming up with an message saying that windows was already activated.

  • Hello NghtyAngl,

     

    Please download and run the utility at this link http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 , then click the Windows tab, Copy to Clipboard, then paste the report into a New Post on this Forum.

     

    Step 2 is tell us about the COA. Tell us:


    1. What edition of Windows XP is it for, Home, Pro, or Media Center?
    2. Does it read "OEM Software" or "OEM Product" in black lettering?
    3. Or, does it have the computer manufacturer's name in black lettering?
    4. DO NOT post the Product Key.
    5. Please also provide a short description of the issue you are experiencing.

     

    NOTE: The data collected with the Genuine Diagnostics Tool does NOT contain any information that can personally identify you and can be fully reviewed, by you, before being posted.

    Thank you,
