    THe copy of WIndows currently installed on your system is not genuine. Does the COA sticker on the bottom of the laptop match the Product Key listed above?

    Also, is the COA for Home or Pro?

  • It appears you have an illegal "Volume License" version of Windows XP Professional installed. Dell does not sell or install VL versions of Windows XP on their computers. I would suggest that you contact Dell Support and request a genuine Dell Windows XP Reinstallation CD and proceed with a "Clean Install".
