If you are using a legal licenced copy of xp then you can activate it over the phone by just following the prompts.

If on the other hand you have no licence key, i suggest you look for advice elsewhere as these activities are illegal.

What's your problem?DELL INSPIRON 6400I TURN IT ON AND IT SAYS WINDOWS PRODUCT ACTIVATION SO I DO THAT TO REGISTER THEN SAYS CONFIG NETWORK SETT I PUT IT ON AUTO SAYS UNABLE TO ESTABLISH A CONNECT


Windows will slowly stop functioning if it was never activated till all you get is the mandatory activation screen. The problem you have besides the the activation is that your network card is not connecting to internet. You no longer can get into Windows to remedy the problem, because of the activation screen. Catch 22!

If this is true, you only option is to wipe and re-install Windows.

I need Product Key of my PC


Did you have Windows XP Professional on your laptop before you downloaded it from the internet? If not, that's your first problem.

When you reinstall or download a operating system you must use the one that is on the Certificate Of Authentication (COA) Sticker on the bottom of your laptop or inside the battery case. That's your key on it (the series of 5 letters and numbers).

If you use someone else's disk to install or download like you did you must make sure that it is the same operating system as yours. In other words, if your COA says Windows XP Home, then you can't install Windows XP Professional because when it comes time to activate it will fail.

Borrow a operating system disk that is the same as your COA from neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and reinstall windows. When it asks for the key, use the key that is on your COA Sticker then it will activate.

If you have to take it to a computer repair shop they should install the operating system for $60 or less if you have a valid COA Sticker.

Good afternoon, I want to know if is possible to dowgrade windons vista to xp without xp cd installer


You will need the XP CD to "downgrade", and you must re-partition the hard drive, and re-format the new partition before installing XP.

Anybody know code 4 fate? the unlock code...


The game "FATE" by Wild Tangent Games has an activation code system, used for verification on whether or not a person bought the game. You cannot play "FATE" without the activation code. Many activation codes are made and used at the same time; So there is not just "One code". To obtain an activation code, you must buy the game, whether that is online, in real life at the store, or other methods of payment. The activation system is online-based, therefore, you cannot activate your game without internet access. With this, Wild Tangent has made it so that, once an activation code is used, it may never be used again. Because of that, if one were to post a code they have already used, it would be worthless to anyone else who might use it.

I have a toshiba tecra m3.i tried to install windows xp media center edition????with no joy! it keeps saying install disk 2 when i install disk 2 nothing happens , i have windows on the laptop but nothing...


First you have to know if that Windows XP Media Center is compatible with your laptop, it should be properly installed to avoid errors.

Second if you don't have drivers, you have to access the internet so you don't have any choice but to use another computer to download all the drivers for your laptop

Here's the site for your tecra laptop

How I restablish Windows XP using a key that already exists on my laptop


download winxp manger from www.yamicsoft.com and check your key;and eben if you want to modify the key download Windows XP Product Key Modifier 1.0.0a from softpedia.com the url is :    http://download.softpedia.ro/dl/3bab449dfd605768973a2f02a856185e/4b14c85c/100000997/software/SYSTEM/XPPID.exe

or you can even manually modify the key 
Here's How:

Click on Start and then Run. 

In the text box in the Run window, type regedit and click OK. This will open the Registry Editor program. 

Locate the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE folder under My Computer and click on the (+) sign next the folder name to expand the folder. 

Continue to expand folders until you reach the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareMicrosoftWindowsNTCurrent VersionWPAEvents registry key. 

Click on the WPAEvents folder. 

In the results that appear in the window on the right, locate OOBETimer. 

Right-click on the OOBETimer entry and choose Modify from the resulting menu. 

Change at least one digit in the Value data text box and click OK. This will deactivate Windows XP. 

Feel free to close Registry Editor at this point. 

Click on Start and then Run. 

In the text box in the Run window, type the following command and click OK. 

%systemroot%system32oobemsoobe.exe /a 

When the Let's activate Windows window appears, choose Yes, I want to telephone a customer service representative to activate Windows and then click Next. 

Click the Change Product Key button at the bottom of the window. 

Don't worry about filling anything out on this screen.

Type your new, valid Windows XP product key in the New key: text boxes and then click the Update button. 

You should now reactivate Windows XP by following the instructions on the Activate Windows by phone window which you should now be seeing or via the Internet by clicking the Back button and following the instructions on that screen. 

If you'd rather postpone activating Windows XP until a later date, you can click the Remind me later button. 

After activating Windows XP, you can verify that activation was successful by repeating steps 9 and 10 above.

The Windows Product Activation window that appears should say "Windows is already activated. Click OK to exit."
Tips:

Do all these registry changes and commands make you a bit uneasy? Don't worry, it's really not that difficult if you follow each step exactly.

If you'd like some help, you should look at my Step by Step Guide to Changing the Windows XP Product Key. It's a complete walk-through of the process, with each step accompanied by a screen shot of exactly what you'll see plus a thorough description of what to do.

Still not comfortable making registry changes? Luckily there is another option if you need to change your Windows XP product key code. Winkeyfinder, a popular free product key finder program, also has the ability to easily change the Windows XP product key.

Winkeyfinder is an excellent alternative solution to changing the Windows XP product key code manually.

How do i reinstall winxp sp2 when cd key is missing?


You can install the OS but you are not going to be able to activate the OS without the key. It will run for 30 days before it has to be activated. All you can do is call Microsoft and tell them you are installing it on the same computer it came on. They normally bend over backward to activate the operating system, and you should have no trouble. Remember, you have not installed it on any other computer, that is critical. To contact a Microsoft customer service representative to activate Windows by phone, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then clickActivate Windows.

    Or, click the Windows Activation icon in the notification area.
  2. Click Yes, I want to telephone a customer service representative to active Windows now.
  3. Click Read the Windows Product Activation Privacy Statement, click Back, and then clickNext.
  4. Follow the steps in the Activate Windows by phone dialog box, and then click Next.

    Note The number appears now and differs based on the location that you select.
  5. When activation is completed and you receive the following message, click OK.You have successfully activated your copy of Windows.(Curtorsey Microsoft)

How do I downgrade?
Install a copy of Windows XP Professionalmag-glass_10x10.gif with the product key that came with the copy, and then when you hit the activation screen - which is near the end of the installation process - select the activate by phone option rather than the online method. You'll likely end up talking with a live rep; tell him that you're downgrading from Vista to XP, and give him the Vista product key. The rep is supposed to walk you through the rest.
