    the operating system may continue to run even when the time runs out(pirated) but trying to get any type of updates from microsoft that require a genuine validation you will not be able to get.

    did you use utorrent or somthing?

How to Activate Windows XP in 5 Minutes or Less
Having rebuilt, tested, and reloaded hundreds of computers, I’ve become keenly aware of one of the unavoidable speedbumps during setup — Windows XP’s product activation. After one too many activations, Windows complains that your product key is no longer valid or you’ve exceeded the limit. To keep Windows on the up-and-up (and stay atop the seemingly endless flood of security patches), you’ll have to activate once more with Microsoft. Here are some time-tested tips that will get you through the mandatory process in five minutes or less.

Try Internet Activation First

If you have an internet connection when activating Windows, attempt to use the online route first. In the Windows Product Activation Wizard, choose “Yes, lets activate Windows over the internet now”, followed by “No, do not register with Microsoft”. You may receive a friendly “Thank you!” and your copy of Windows will be good to go.
If internet activation fails and the Wizard complains about “too many activations” or an “incorrect product key”, you still have the option of calling Microsoft’s toll free number to activate Windows. As long as the Wizard doesn’t report “invalid product key,” options are still open. An “invalid” (not “incorrect,” mind you) key is one reported or detected as pirated, so you’ll have to find some other way to make your software go.

Phone Activation

Activating Windows via phone is about as enjoyable as a trip to the dentist, but knowing exactly which buttons to push and the right words to say can help cut your time in half and get you the necessary code.
If your online activation from above failed, click the Telephone button to generate an Installation ID, which you’ll read off to a customer service representative shortly. Call the number for your appropriate country, and you’ll enter into a phone menu system which would like nothing more than for you to activate by reading the numbers onscreen. The software behind the menu, however, does the same checking as the online activation method — meaning if your online activation failed, so too will the automated phone activation. Press 0 on the phone keypad when asked if you are calling to activate Windows XP (the first opportunity you are prompted for input). Like many newer phone menus, it will respond “I see that you’d like to transfer to a customer service representative”, and subsequently try to convince you to go back to the automated system. Ignore the pre-recorded woman’s somewhat rude request to go back, and press 1 to to talk to a human.
After a short delay and the distinct possibility of listening to some poorly chosen music, a representative will ask for either the first six digits of your Installation ID, or the full set. (The first six digits of the Installation ID are the only real keys to generating a Confirmation ID, however the reps more often than not ask you to read off the rest of the group. The rest of the numbers are encoded values detailing some very basic hardware details about your computer.)
If asked “Is this the first time you’re activating Windows?”, say yes. If you say no, the representative will ask for an explanation as to why you’re re-activating Windows.
If asked “Did you purchase the software from a retail store?”, say “It came pre-installed with my computer.”
As a final time-kill (their system sometimes takes a minute to generate Confirmation IDs on days with a particularly heavy load), you may be asked for your Product Key (Windows serial number).
After you’ve given them the necessary information, the representative will read the Confirmation ID to you, which you can simply type into the provided fields. Using these methods, it takes about 4 minutes to activate Windows on average.

This will be fix your problem

    I understand what you need.

    You can find on internet several key codes for your windows CD, but not always those codes are matching with your CD returning as invalid after inserted. You need the right one.

I need a product key for my haier windows xp service pack 3 home edition


License keys for Windows XP, any service pack, can be tricky to recover or restore. For a temporary solution you can try using the linked program. KMSPico 10 0 9 Final By TeamDaz Now you'll need to be careful while installing the trial version so that you don't install any of the bundled bloatware.

You could also try to rollback your serice pack to SP 1 or 2 through the Windows Update option under the Control Panel. It may be that your key is only valid through SP 2, which is fairly common and a problem I encountered often when I was working on XP machines back in 2005 and 2006.

Hello,

I understand. Microsoft has cracked down on tracking software that are installed in computers by requiring a validationg of your install operating software.

Since the XP operating system was installed on the computer when you purchased the system. Who ever sold you the computer must provide the CD key for your XP software. This CD key is five groups of numbers and letters you must enter to send to Microsoft to validtae your XP software.

Hope this information will give you what you need to validate your XP software.

Good Luck

Lost Product Key for Windows XP Service Pack 2 Installation cd


The product key is on the folder in which the genuine software disk was shipped to the buyer. MS Service Packs do not change the key nor should they require you to reinstall the key.
You have a pirated version of XP software and even with a key it will not pass Microsoft validation. It will be quickly disabled by Microsoft and you'll be left with a black screen.
You need to get a valid copy of the software.

Cannot validate my copy of XP Pro


Hi

This is illegal to use the pirated version of Windows Xp( or any other version). You need to validate it.

Always buy the registered version of Windows from some vendor.

If you just need to validate it for updates from Microsoft. mail me at aryan_lovesu1982@yahoo.com. I will send you the solution
