  • Peace,

     

    Please visit http://www.microsoft.com/genuine . Next located and click on the "Validate Windows" button in the upper right hand corner of the screen. Follow the instructions and this should validat windows. Should you have problems I will ask you to download and run the MGA Diag Tool and copy/paste your results back in this same thread. This will help us analyze your situation and provide you with a resolution. Please follow the steps below. 

     

     

    Download and run the utility at this link http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 , then click the Windows tab, Copy to Clipboard, then paste the report into a New Post on this Forum.

     

    Step 2 is tell us about the COA. Tell us:


    1. What edition of Windows XP is it for, Home, Pro, or Media Center?
    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.
    5. Please also provide a short description of the issue you are experiencing.

     

    NOTE: The data collected with the Genuine Diagnostics Tool does NOT contain any information that can personally identify you and can be fully reviewed, by you, before being posted.

     

    Thank you,
