cannot get XP install activated RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have had to reinstall XP on my old laptop and I have re used the Genuine Advantage CD that I bought some time ago from Microsoft.  However, when I try to activate the product, I get a message that they key was already used - thats true, by this laptop....

    I have tried telephone activation and tried generating a new key, but to no avail.  How can I overcome this problem?
