My windows xp every days comment me u must active ur window 25 digit product key ( left two days )

Your Windows XP is not activated. This means you must find your original Windows XP disc, and the sleeve that the disc comes in should have the product key on the back.
Type in this product key to activate Windows.
Thanks for using FixYa.

I have an original cd-rom for xp pro, but no product key, is there a way to retrieve it from the cd- rom?

  • Use a product key recovery program to find your lost key. An example of such a program is Product Key Explorer

  • 2

    Install the program by double-clicking on the file you just downloaded and going through the installation process.

  • 3

    Open the program when ready and then click "select computer" and make sure it says "Local Computer." Click on the "Find Keys" button.

  • 4

    Locate the program that you installed through your CD-ROM. Next to the product name should be your product key.

  • From here:

    Good luck.

    It is asking me for the activation key number but I do not have it. I am currently running windows xp professional and there is a message that says "message number 45090." What do I do?

    you would need to put in the activation key that cam with windows xp. somewhere in the folder the windows xp cd is in then go to start>all programs>accessories> system tools > activated windows then enter that key...p.s. if you do not have the key you just have to buy a new windows copy or live with it soon it might say you're a victim of software counterfeiting but it doesnt really affect anything with your computer

    Activation key for windows xp pro. have programme

    If your computer came with it loaded on it, there should be a small sticker somewhere on the computer with the key.

    If you purchased it after you purchased the computer the key should be in the documentation that came with the CD.

    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.
