Cannot logon to XP, asks for activation RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all

    I have huge problem with XP professional logon and activation.

    I made clean install to new disk and used valid lisense key (same as with the old hdd). Now XP keep asking activation which I did after getting ethernet drivers installed in the safe mode. Activation was ok but pc still keeps askin to activate xp. I also tried the automatic phone activation also but with same result.

    Activation is successfull but I still cannot logon. I have tried Ms acticle ID312295 and all other similar hints which I could find but still the same problem. 

    Hopefully someone could help me with this matter.

    Please run the Microsoft Genuine Advantage Diagnostic Test (MGADT) so that I may analyze the results.

    By clicking the link below, you will download the MGADT.  Then click the Run button. Then click the Run button again. Then click the Continue button to perform the diagnostic. The Windows tab should show, click the Copy button to paste your report to the clipboard.  Then paste the report into a New Post on this Forum by adding a post in it and pressing Ctrl V (to paste the text). Clicking the OK button will clear the Diagnostic window. Here is the download link:

    Please tell us about the Certificate of Authenticity (COA) for your copy of Windows XP.

    1. What edition/version of Windows XP is titled?

    ·         Home

    ·         Professional

    ·         Media Center

    2. Does it read "OEM Software" or "OEM Product" in black lettering?

    3. Or, does it have the computer manufacturer's name in black lettering?

    4. Please provide the customer scenario you are experiencing.

    5. DO NOT post the Product Key.

    Not sure what to look for, see this page to reference your COA:
