  •  

    hi

    i bought a laptop with win xp pro some time back i wanted to upgrade it to SP2, so i gave it to some shop near by and that guy installed SP2 on the laptop

    now i never activated the windows and wanted to activate my copy of windows

    i know the copy i have can't be counterfit as i bought it with my toshiba laptop recovery cd and the laptop i bought is from a big dealer

    but i think it the SP2 upgrade that is making problems can some one tell me what can i do

    one solution i know to recover my original windows activte it through net and upgrade through net as well but i don't have good net connection so i downloaded ms key updater tool and changed my windows key to the one at the bottom of the laptop

    but still when i try to activate it gives me error

    Please follow these steps for assistance:

    Step 1 is to run the utility at this link http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012, then click the Windows tab, click the "Copy" button, then paste the report into a response in this thread.

    Step 2 is to look on the computer or with the materials you received with the computer or with your retail purchase of  Windows to see if you have a Certificate of Authenticity (COA).  If you have one, tell us about the COA.  Tell us:

    1.  What edition of Windows XP is it for, Home, Pro, or Media Center, or another version of Windows?

    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.

    Not sure what to look for?  See this page for reference:  http://www.microsoft.com/resources/howtotell/en/coa.mspx

    The COA states Windows XP Home DELL

    I havve a Dell XP Pro Unopened package and also a XP Pro Upgrade from MS with a Product Key 

    T6PTD-RVTQG-GVMV9-33HPG-XXXXX

     

    Please help.

     

    I am trying to update an older machine from my office.  I purchased all of my equipment DIRECTLY from Dell and when I piurchased the hardware it came iwht an XP PRO upgrade.  I have had an approved MS IT technician work on my machine in the past.  I have approx 8 PC's and unfortunately with closing of a business and opening of another after a move the software linked with each machine is a bit jumbled.  I have numerous MS XP Pro licenses that are all VALID.

     

    Please help...when I called MS I was treated like a criminal rather than a lonstanding customer!!!  They tried to tuff this issue to Dell.

     

    I look forward to your reply!

     

    Glen

     

    Thanks!!!
