My XP IS Genuine... Yet, the activation cancelled and started again... RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, good day!!!

    I'm an IT student here in Cebu Philippines and I'm an avid computer user... Well, cutting the chase, I have a network of computers in my house, all of which are Windows OSes and are very Genuine. I have an old assembled PC running in Windows XP Professional and a laptop and another desktop PC running in Windows Vista Home Premium and Home Basic respectively. I've been using the old PC on XP Pro for almost 4 years already and I've haven't encountered any problems with its validation, even on its Office 2007 since everything was genuine, even as I reformatted the PC for about 2 times already ... That until October 21, 2009 came.

    I was checking my Vista and XP desktop when, just after start-up, a notice came from the Windows Genuine Advantage saying my validation was somewhat canceled and I was to reactivate it. I opted to reactivate again but for some unknown reasons, my PC failed to reactivate, citing that the product key I was using was already used. I was both shocked and frustrated, since the PC has been running on the same OS and on the same product key for 3 years now and yet, only this time did it failed to activate on itself.

    I tried to reactivate it a couple of times already and yet, it won't. I downloaded a Microsoft Genuine Advantage Diagnostic Tool and here's what I got.

    After trying numerous times on reactivating, I haven't found any solution for this problem. The only thing I know is that, I could just report it here and see for yourself that my system is indeed genuine and your records should tell you that.

    I would like to ask for help regarding this problem. I can prove to you, my OS IS GENUINE, though both the package and the CD were misplaced somewhere in our house, I still have the receipts of its purchase, including the already genuine Office 2007 for my PC. I can't afford to spend another couple of pesos for something I paid for. Please, I need to reactivate my XP as soon as possible.

  • Hello sir_dakz03,

    As an IT student, you may want to do some further reading based on your recent encounter with Windows Product Activation.  One of the better write-ups (even though it is a bit dated) I've seen is here:  http://www.aumha.org/win5/a/wpa.php

  • ok, never mind, I just called customer service and they already had my OS activated. (This should cause me long-distance telephone bills...)

    Anyways, thanks...

  • That was just great!!! Looks like I understood some of what the WPA does. Now I know why it happened. Anyways, I already had it reactivated but I'm thankful for the wonderful link you gave. At least, now I know what to do in the event that I'd have to reformat again.

    By the way, I'm about to buy W7 and I'd like to buy for both of my desktops. Thank you again!!... ^_^
