How do I change my Windows XP Product Kep? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have to HP Pavilions Media Center PCs and over the weekend, I had to use the system recovery disks created by one of them to restore the other one.  Now Windows XP won't activate because the product key on the system is in use.  How do I change the product key to my original one

    Please visit Update Your Product Key: Select Your Version of Windows at http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/selfhelp/PKUInstructions.aspx. Next you will need to select Windows XP and follow the steps. 

    Thank you,
