If your internet connection works try activating it online. If not you will have to call Microshaft and give them the number generated by the 'phone option' if the internet activation will not work.

Call this number to get your system activated.

1-888-571-2048

Just tell them you had to reinstall and you have no major upgrades and you have only installed XP on one system and they should give you a number to plug in so your OS will be activated and good to go.

I have a Goodmans laptop which crashed, Ive reinstalled Windows XP home but Microsoft will not accept my Product code, they tell me I must contact Goodmans, Could you please help me with this. Thanks


The Windows product installation code is on the Windows label on the bottom of your laptop. If the label is missing then you need to contact Goodmans to get this information, you will need your receipt as proof of purchase.
Otherwise you will need to purchase a new copy of Windows XP or Windows Vista or the latest version Windows 7.

My windows xp home edition has crashed and i have no recovery cd


Find a friend with either a "retail" Windows XP Home Edition CD-ROM disk,
or with an 'OEM' ("original equipment manufacturer") equivalent.

Use that disk, plus the 25-character product-key on the label on the side of your computer,
to reinstall Windows, or first to try to "repair" your installed copy of Windows.

Or, if you have a "brand-name" computer (Dell, HP, IBM, Lenovo, Acer, Gateway, eMachines)
telephone the manufacturer, and order a replacement "System Restore" set of CD-ROM disks.
Probably about $20, plus $20 for overnight-courier.

Sounds like a bad file . I would consider reinstalling windows. When it starts up, for a new install, it will find your existing OS and ask it you want it repaired, say yes then it wil repair it and leave al you data as is.
