Stuck at login screen when trying to validate RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear Sirs,

    Iam running a copy of XP 64.

    Yesterday i removed some physical hard drives, and a raid controller card.
    Since the power has been off for a while and appeantrly my motherboard battery is empty the clock was set back to 01/01/2002 in the bios.

    Now when i started up my machine there was no problem.
    The only program bugging me about the date was a virus scanner.
    At that time i noticed the time settings were all wrong.
    So i went back to my bios and filled in the correct time and date settings.

    Now when windows starts it says i have to validate.
    This is at the login screen.
    When i click "ok" to validate i get the message it is already validated.
    Then when i continue i get back to login screen and the loop begins again.

    [edit]
    Iam not able to log into windows in safe mode either
    [edit]

    I have no clue how to solve this?

    Any suggestions?

    Kind regards,
    Jasper

    Please tell us about the Certificate of Authenticity (COA) for your copy of Windows XP.

    1. What edition/version of Windows XP is titled?

    ·         Home

    ·         Professional

    ·         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. Please provide the customer scenario you are experiencing.

    5. DO NOT post the Product Key.

    Not sure what to look for, see this page to reference your COA:
