Off Topiuc: Bought new eBay �XP Pro� � How can I find out if I can register it? RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I just purchased a retail (they said) �Microsoft Windows XP Pro, SP1� on the condition that it was sealed and key had never been registered from eBay �Lucky Dog Bargain�.

    It arrived open, not in a retail box, (MS folder) and with a key # XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX; not in the correct Microsoft Key format: (the X�s are for security � it had numbers & letters) XXXXX-XXX-XXXXXXX-XXXXX-YYYY (4 extra numbers), and on another sticker it says: CD SET: XO9-69552. 

    I do not DARE put it on my computer until figure out what is going on.  I have been searching for hours for a Microsoft site to check this, but all I can do is get my own OEM XP Home checked.

                Can anyone help me out on this?  I don�t really know what I have � is it OEM?


                                                    Thanks, Jim
