problem activating xp RRS feed

  • Question

  • Having had a few problems with the computer (very slow) I've just installed XP from a disk bought last year. Now, if I "Boot from the disk" it gets to the black page with WINDOWS in the centre, Copyright in the bottom left and Microsoft in the bottom right, and the eggtimer showing and just sits there.

    If I switch off and restart it gets to the "You must acticate this new version of xp" , I click on yes (do it now),,,,,,,,,thats it, nothing else happens.

    Mumbai tells me there should be a box appear asking 'internet or phone' but it doesn't appear,just sits there doing nothing.
