    Unfortunately you appear to have bought a counterfeit copy of Windows.
    The Windows OEM SLP marker string is for a Dell PC, while your machine is a Hewlett Packard/Compaq
    If you use the Product Key Update Tool, you should be able to change the Key to the one on your COA sticker, assuming that the sticker says that the OS is XP Pro.
    If not, then you'll have to reinstall using either a real XP Pro disk and license, a recovery disk from HP, or a OEM XP Home disk using your COA sticker Key.
