purchased xp pro after 6 years shows "not validated" RRS feed

  • Question

  • I built a desktop about 6-7 years ago and purchased a copy of XP Pro and installed it.  I have not changed the motherboard or hard drive yet it just started showing not validated.  I think my orig disk (halogram) and packet is in Florida but I am up north for the summer.  I have several computers, including 2 laptops and another desktop and never had this problem on any of them.

    Two years ago when I was having a problem, I reinstalled XP from a spare disk (not the original) and did not bother reinstalling using the original.  I am thinking that it caused the problem that did not crop up until now.  Do  I have to wait till I get back to Florida to reinstall with the original?

    Sorry for any confusion I may have caused but I have always tried to not screw it up but snowbirds have problems with age and pushing 80 ain't easy.  Any help is appreciated.  I see "License Type" and it says "Volume" which sounds more like an OEM version but I did buy a retail version.  I will dig through some of my files to see if I can find the purchase documents.  I actually remember buying it from the Boy Scouts who probably received some as a donation.

    Here is the printout for the validation:

  • It looks like the spare disk was counterfeit/fraudulent.  The Blocked VLK means that it is a corporate version that has been leaked or stolen and so Microsoft has blocked it from use.  You should back up all the files you want to save and reformat, then reinstall with your original hologram CD.
