I get an error on startup saying windows is having trouble with my license


There are 3 possible options which comes to my mind :

1) An illegal Windows registration-key is used at your computer.

2) The (il)legal registration key at your computer got used at multiple computers.

3) You might have re-installed Windows at your PC and started another online-registration with the same key.

What is my registration number


A Registration number is when the computer is registered.
Registered with Microsoft, or perhaps eMachines; for example.

To me an erroneous procedure, as it just gives them Personal information about you, which they DID NOT have, and DO NOT need..........

"Oh get great information about Windblows, or use eMachines (Insert any computer maker here), helpful tech information...."

UH, NOT.........
Nothing good comes from it.......

For a computer that is Not registered, it is just Activated.
The Windows program is Activated.
This requires using the Windows Product Key, which is found on the Back of the computer, or up on the side of the computer tower.

Let these X's represent letters, and numbers.
The Windows product key is 25 characters long,

XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX

Registry problem


You must have an authorised (legal copy) of windows xp.

Registering Windows XP enables Microsoft to notify you of essential program updates, security issues and available program patches.


Although registration is optional, you are required to first validate and activate your software to ensure that it is not a pirated copy.


Windows XP has a built-in function that will lock a non-activated genuine Microsoft product after it has run for 30 days

From the Start menu, click "All Programs," then "Activate Windows."


A blue window will appear with a picture depicting a set of keys in the top-left corner, and a message saying "Let's Activate Windows."


Click the topmost radio button marked "Yes, let's activate Windows now."

Click the white "Next" button on the lower-right corner of the window and follow the instructions to activate your copy of Windows XP.


The final blue window of the activation process will be marked "Register With Microsoft?" Click the white "Yes" button at the lower-right corner.


A new pop-up window marked "Collecting Registration Data" will appear.


Fill in the form by typing your personal details into the sections provided.

At the foot of the form you will find two blank white squares followed by messages asking whether you wish to receive special offers and promotional material from Microsoft.


Click on one or both of the white squares if you wish to participate; if not, leave them blank. Click the white "Next" button in the lower right corner of your screen.


A "Thank You" message will appear. Click the white "OK" button in the lower-right corner to complete the Windows XP registration process.


Hope this helps.

If you are refering to the windows activation. You can simply do the phone registration, it is automated and easy...call the number and it will instruct you through the rest. 99% of the time you wont even speak to a person. it is very simple.

My computer turns on but will not let me log on to windows.. a small window comes up before opening wimdows"windows product activation. this copy of windows must be activated with microsoft before you can...


Click "yes, I want to activate" -- a telephone-number should be displayed. Telephone Microsoft, at that number, and they will help you "activate" your copy of Windows.

The only other option is to take the original "System Restore" CD-ROM disks, and 25-character Microsoft product-key, and reinstall Windows.

I need registration key


If your computer is the 2400 like the catagory you have posted to, then your product key should already be on the side of your computer. If you lost it but still have the original disk set that came with the machine, You can reinstall from the original Dell disks and not be asked to activate your product since the key and activation are preloaded from the Dell factory disk. Otherwise you will have to buy a product key from a computer store. It will probably have to be purchased from a small computer store or online since places like Best Buy and Staples were forced to stop selling the XP products in January. The average price for an OEM CD with Certificate of authenticity is about $99 depending on where you get it. Hope this helps...

Need to activate windows xp. dont have a coa # on computer.


Did this come on a WinXP disc, or did Windows come preinstalled on the computer? If you lost the CD Key, you're going to have to call Microsoft tech support to get a key to activate it.
