Cannot make windows XP genuine RRS feed

  • Question

  • I recently purchased a computer which has windows XP Professional. When I'm at the welcome screen and try to log in, I get a message:

     

    This copy of windows must be activated before you can log on. Do you want to activate now? I click yes, but I all I get is a black screen. Can anyone help?

     

    I'm not able to run a diagnostics tool because I can't login at all.

    Like I just said I cannot run a genuine advantage diagnostics tool because I'm not able to log into windows, its denied me access to any of the accounts until windows is activated.
