Loggin problem Windows XP on Dell 4400

I purchased a used Dell 4400 @ a swap meet and am having a problem with the loggin on XP. It will not allow me to boot up from a legit XP CD i currently own. It loops back to the loggin window.

I is continually rrequesting that I register the current version of windows which seems to be incorrect. I attempted to type in the Key on the MS official logo on the PC but it did not work.

    You cannot use a DELL product key with a windows xp disk, you need to order a dell xp disk for your machine on the dell site. or use the key that came with the windows disk you are using

    The legit XP cd you have, is it the retail version of Windows XP or Dell's OEM version of Windows XP?
