Attention: Stephen : Validation issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear Stephen,
    I have a copy of Windows XP Home Edition which was bought in 2004 and have been using until this Friday where a pop up appear asking me to activate my copy of my windows XP which I did that in 2004 without problem.  Subsequently i have downloaded SP2.  I have run a copy of MGA and below are a copy of the information. 
    The information for my copy of Windows XP Home Edition are as follows:
    1) I have a windows XP Home Edition
    2) It reads as "OEM Software"
    Just for your information, I have reinstalled Windows on the same machine due to virus attack around 2005.
    Below are the info on my diagnostic report.
    Hope you can enlighten me by not asking me to buy another copy because I confidently believe that the copy of Windows which I installed in my PC is a genuine copy from authorised dealer.

  • Hello Derrick,


    All appears well after reading your MGA diagnostic results and all that is required is for you to reactivate Windows. 

    Please contact a Microsoft customer service representative to activate Windows by phone by following these steps:


    1. Click “Start”, point to” All Programs”, point to “Accessories”, point to” System Tools”, and then click “Activate Windows”.

    Or, click the Windows Activation icon in the notification area.

    2. Click Yes, I want to telephone a customer service representative to active Windows now.

    3. Click “Read the Windows Product Activation Privacy Statement”, click “Back”, and then click “Next”

    4. Follow the steps in the Activate Windows by phone dialog box and then click “Next”.

    Note:  The number appears now and differs based on the location that you select.

    5. Once activation is completed and you receive the following message, click “OK”.
    You have successfully activated your copy of Windows.

    More information on how to activate Windows XP at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307890

    Also you may reference the following site for various telephone activation centers:  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/326851

    If you are done with the activation, kindly proceed in validating the copy of your software by going to http://www.microsoft.com/genuine Click “Validate Windows” button.

    Please post again if you need further assistance. Thank you.



    Thank you
