Hi,
Are you sure , that you are using genuine micorsoft xp cd, or have you installed the same from pirated cd . If the cd is pirated you would have to install a genuine copy, or make this copy genuine by purchasing a product key from microsoft .

There are ways to hack the problem free , but on FIXYA forum we would not be able to help you out .Try searching the free fixes on google .

Error message windows did not pass genuine windows validation you may be a victim of software counterfeiting


Who installed the Microsoft Operating System on your computer?
That person used a "non-genuine", i.e., "bootleg", version of Microsoft Windows.

If it was a computer-store, then contact 'piracy@microsoft.com' and report them for using "non-genuine" software.

Otherwise, click the link on the screen to start the process to purchase a genuine license to use the software.

You may be a victim of software counterfeiting.


Whenever you get a genuine windows validation error you must contact Microsoft to find out why you get the message.

Temporarily you can get rid of the message doing a System Restore to a date before the genuine windows validation error appeared for the first time.

To do system restore you can go to
Start button>Programs>Accessories>System tools>System Restore.

Victim of software counterfeiting


This means the Windows Validation Tool has checked your installed copy of Windows and has found it to be a non-genuine copy. This means the product key is non valid.

Where did you get the PC? If a "friend" installed Windows for you then he is using illegal product keys.

If you are sure your Windows is genuine, you need to telephone Microsoft and fight it out with them.
