You can search online for a Windows installation cd or restore cd based on your system. I got a used dell optiplex desktop pentium III but then I had a hard disk failure and had to buy a new one. But then I had no OS other than Windows 2000. I was able to get a Dell Windows XP Professional installation CD for around $10 on Amazon.com. Easier than purchasing a license while avoiding the potential problems with pirating.

As it is illegal to use pirate software, it is possible to make it a legal copy, it will cost around £90-£100, for a liceice code, or you can download anti-genuine authentication tools of the net to make your copy look guenuine!

This copy of Windows did not pass genuine validation


If you purchased the computer with Windows XP Professional pre-installed from a computer-store, then the computer-store is guilty of "software piracy". Call Microsoft (1-800-R-U-LEGIT) and report the store for not selling you a "genuine" copy of Microsoft software.

If you have a brand-name computer (e.g., Dell, eMachines) purchased since 2001, it came with a genuine copy of Windows, and a decal (either on the side of a desktop computer, or on the bottom of a laptop) with a valid 25-character product-key.
Contact that manufacturer, and order a replacement set of the "System Restore" CD/DVD disks. Reinstall Windows using those disks and the product-key.

If you have a "bootleg" version of Windows, you need to follow the on-screen instructions to "get genuine", i.e., use your credit-card to purchase a valid product-key from MIcrosoft.

Or, purchase a Windows 7 Upgrade package from a computer-store, and install Windows 7.

This sort of issue takes place usually after windows updates
Therefore the best solution is to uninstall the recent updates on your computer and restart again.

If you have the original CD you should be able to reinsert it into CD player and pass validation. If you don't have the CD, then you license key for your copy of Windows was tagged as invalid for some reason in their databases. You will have to contact microsoft.com to get it corrected.

30 day use Windows Xp Pro


The problem is with the actual key that you are using. Not your computer, or the components inside of it. If you are certain that you are using a valid key Its likely that you have a a key for windows home, and you are trying to install windows professional, or visa versa... Either way, If all else fails, you could replace the OS ( Buy or download) much easier than the hardware inside your computer.


Basically your computer is fine, just get a valid OS. If your adventurous try ubuntu.


Hope this helps!
