Windows XP Validation - FAILURE RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi I added memory to old PC with Xp which has been running for years.

    This required validation - which I did successfully.

    Today XP started up requesting validation. I have followed ALL steps on MS Knowledge Base 916247 including changing XP keys (the response I get is that that is the current key in use).

    I run diagnostic validation tool and keep being returned to validate or buy windows 7.

    I get NO error messages - XP just does not validate.

    I now have three days left to validate ! Help !

    I can see nothing wrong with the report.
     
    Click on the Start button,  then Run...
     
    in the box type
     
    C:\windows\system32\oobe\msoobe.exe /A
     
    and click OK
    This should bring up the activation routine

    Activation and validation are two very different things – and you are actually talking about Activation.
    You need to activate by telephone – when the automated service asks which service you require, do NOT respond. this should force an operator to pick up, who can deal with your problem.
