lost code and cd's for xp home and xp plus RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi I have had this computer worked on by so many friends that our XP home and XP plus CD's, and codes are gone. My sister in law works for Microsoft, and gifted these items to us for christmas a few years ago. Is there some way that Microsoft can look back and re issue #,s as this is the same one we had when we installed those discs. I can't update now and do not have a media player because of all friends helping me out, i somehow have gotten Xp pro and it is not authorized, Can you please help or am I just out of luck and have to buy new ones?  I still have the orange and green folders and booklets that came with the two cd's. each foler has cd set #'s on them. Could these numbers be of use?

    thanks scott
