If you have the original CD which came with the computer:
1. backup all data - burn DVD's or use external storage media
2. Boot to the original CD and follow the instructions to re-install Windows XP (you may have to hit F12 while booting to get boot menu and choose the CD/DVD drive).
3. Use the second (drivers) CD to load the drivers for all your hardware
4. Support.dell.com and do all driver updates
5. Do all updates and patches from Windows Updates
6. Re-install all of the software which you purchased after buying the PC
7. Do all patches and updates for all the software
There will be other things to do also but this covers most of it.
Other option is take it to a computer shop and have them do it.
If you don't have the original CDs you can try contacting Dell for replacements (may be a charge for it)
Another option is to go to linuxmint.com and download it and install, this will be the easiest option and you won't have to worry about XP no longer being supported.

If you are testing this on an already installed windows XP it will report as incorrect. On a new installation it will work. By new I mean a removed and a replaced partition. It is an emergency installation when the original has been lost. It also somehow ties up with the original issued number by its sequencing. MS can tell you the original code from this series of alpha numerals if this series of alphas are quoted.
