Validate my copy of win xp pro RRS feed

  • Question

  • I moved my hard drive to a new home built computer and got the validation pop up. My validation was approved and things went well until I had some problems with video and took my computer apart to install a new video card. I was given three days to complete validation and could not get the video problem solved and now I can't get the validation to take a look I get a message that says this copy of windows is not activated. I have been all over the microsoft site and have learned a lot about why I should activate and how to activate but all the instructions tell me to do something that is not available on my computer evidently. I would call someone but the phone validation info disappeared with the validation program. I know my copy of XP is good, I have been using it for years and have always been able to validate when I relocated my hard drive. Please help me get in touch with someone who can validate my software. Thanks. (copy of report follows)

  • Unfortunately, the license for an OEM version of Windows XP is permanently tied to the first PC it is installed and activated on.  The license cannot be transferred to a different PC.
