Validating XP RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just installed a new harddrive in a Dell computer. I had to reinstall everything from the disks Dell gave when the computer was first purchased. Windows XP never asked for a CD key, but when I tried to update XP, Microsoft said my version could not be validated because of an unknown problem. My computer says that XP was validate when I run a check on it. What can I do to get updates?
