  • Hello nomogood,

    Right now, your friend's Dell OptiPlex GX270 computer has a retail edition of XP Pro installed (Line 10), and that installation was done with a widely pirated Product Key that Microsoft activation servers will not accept (Line 2).

    If you search the internet for the part of the VLK reported by the mgadiag utility, V7X7H-8VY68-W7D7M, you will see that it is a very "popular" product key with at least 20 pages of hits on Google.

    Luckily, the solution to your problem is simple.  Use the recovery solution supplied by Dell to replace the nongenuine installation of XP Pro with the genuine OEM installation of Windows XP.  If the computer came with XP Pro from Dell, you can try to use the Product Key Updater utility http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=45668 to "genuine-ize" the current nongenuine installation of XP Pro.

    Be sure to back up and offload your data before you do this because typically the recovery process destroys all data on the hard disk.  If the computer does not have Dell PC Restore by Symantec installed, your other option is to use the Dell OS Reinstallation CD.  If you do not have the Reinstallation CD supplied by Dell, you can order the CD for many Dell models directly from Dell http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/dellcare/en/backupcd_form?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&redirect=1
