Windows Activation works but won't let me log in RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all, I formatted my son's computer last night. When I restarted, I got the usual message of 'you need to activate your copy of windows XP' which I did. I got the 'congratulations' message and clicked OK. It took me to the log in page but when I clicked on Owner, it told me I had to activate windows. I redid this again, was given the congratulations.....took me back to the log in page and was given the same message 'you need to activate windows'. It seems to be caught in a loop' What do I need to do to get the system working please? Any help is appreciated! :)

  • Oh btw I called Microsoft after a few attempts at activating the product and was given a new key. I inserted that and got the congratulations message again....it just won't let me into the system when I click to log in :/

  • Hello Venus179,

     

    Maybe whatever the cause of you needing to reformat is still not fixed...?
