Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop
I originally had windows me installed on my computer. I lost my system restore disk for windows me and I did not get a copy of XP oem that was later installed by the person that was working on my computer. I did not know that it was for a trial period only.I cannot do anything on my computer. Now, when I turn the computer on, it says "Copy of Windows must be activated before you can log on." Then, it says that there is a "Problem that is preventing Windows from accurately checking the license for this computer." ERROR MESSAGE: x80004005. Should I try to purchase the restore system cd for windows to bring it back to its first state or should I just continue and get one for XP? I really don't know what to do. My computer is old. It has a 64k memory, 56k modem and 750mhz. do I need to bring it to its first state and then upgrade? What to do? HELP!!! THANKS
Well XYZ if you had XP already on your computer and it worked, then there is no reason to go back to Windows Me 2000, but you do need to get ahold of the person who installed the XP version and have him reinstall it. You will have to Activate that one also within 30 days or it will do the same thing again. Or if you have someone with Win 2000 that will have to be reinstalled too. Regardless of which windows you decide on it has to be installed fresh. As for the Error Message windows cannot validate your version of windows is what they are telling you. I had that problem for so long I finally got tired of the **** and validating over the phone I finally got my XP that doesn't need validating. I do however have the validation code for all windows, send me your e-mail address and I will mail it to you. You will probably have to accept it before it will allow you to get it. After I send you the code I will remove your e-mail address for I have no need for it, Right? The code won't work for the windows alreadry on your computer, you need a fresh copy to install for the code to work. Let me know who you are when you write me so I don't delete your message. something like it's me, XYZ.
