No drivers after re-format and XP installation

I installed a licensed copy of XP on my friends computer who had a bootleg copy previously. I removed the partition of the bootleg and created a new one for the licensed XP I installed but none of the drivers are on the system... the only icon on the main window is the recycle bin... what can I do??

Im victim of software ounterfeiting.


Call Microsoft, at 1-800-R-U-LEGIT, and tell them where you purchased the computer, if that computer-store sold you a computer with a "bootleg" copy of Windows pre-installed. Microsoft prosecutes those computer-stores that are involved with "bootleg" software.

Then, follow the on-screen instructions to purchase a new license-key for Windows XP, using your credit-card.

Volume licenece key in my pc has been bloked i dont now what to do plz help me


> volume license key has been blocked

If you work for an organization that has licensed, in "bulk", copies of Microsoft Windows, then your I.T. department would have received a "volume" license-key, i.e., one license-key spanning _every_ licensed computer, not one unique license-key _per_ every computer. If so, contact your local I.T. department, and ask them why Microsoft is now "blocking" usage of computers that are using that "volume" license-key.

Or, if you are using a "bootleg" copy of Windows XP, i.e., somebody outside of the organization that licensed that "volume" license-key has ILLEGALLY used that license-key to install Windows on your computer, then you need to purchase license of a "genuine" copy of Windows XP.

See: http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/

for details on how to "get genuine".

Telephone HP Support, and order a set of "System Restore" CD/DVD disks for that specific model of HP computers.
Probably $20 for the media, and $20 for "overnight" courier.

Any new computer made by HP between 2001 and 2008 is automatically licensed to use Windows XP (either Home or Professional).

Use that set of disks to install a *genuine* copy of Windows, thus replacing the "bootleg" copy that currently is installed.

This copy of windows did not pass genuine windows validation.


If you purchased the computer with Windows XP Professional pre-installed, then take the computer back to that seller, and report them to Microsoft (1-800-R-U-LEGIT) for selling you a computer with a "bootleg" copy of Microsoft software.

Or, reinstall Windows, using the 25-character license-key on the decal on the side of the desktop computer.

Why my Microsoft Windows XP Professional not validated in ginuine?


The 25-character license-key that was used to install XP Professional was detected by Microsoft as being illegally copied from somebody to whom the license-key was originally issued.

If you bought the computer from a computer-store, and they installed Windows, then they are guilty of violating their licensing-agreement with Microsoft.

If a "friend" of yours installed Windows onto your computer, then it is they who are guilty of "software piracy".

How do you uninstall windows xp pro to the previous version?


If the copy of Windows XP Pro you have installed is already registered/verified as having been previously installed, you have three options:

1. Call Microsoft and purchase a COA (Cert of Auth) for your copy. This will get you a new "key" and will allow your copy to verify.

2. Simply buy a copy. If it's unavailable in a local store, search Google with something like, "Buy Windows XP Pro" for places to buy (I like Amazon.com for things like this, because one is perhaps slightly more likely to buy a REAL copy. :-))

3. Ditch Windows entirely. Have a computer savvy friend go to http://www.ubuntu.com and download/burn a copy of Ubuntu 8.04. Pop it into your CD drive and install a fully-working operating system, web browser (Firefox) and Email Client (Evolution--the equivalent of a full version Outlook). A full office suite and multimedia apps are included. Free. If you do not have a tech-savvy friend to ask, go to the website and request to have an installation CD sent to you for FREE.

Registration of DVD X Copy Platium


Unless your copy is "bootlegged", simply call the company and tell them the old computer crashed several times, you gave up, bought a new computer, and you need to install it on your "new" computer.

If they value you as a customer they will give you support you need, if not make sure you tell them you are taking your business elsewhere.

You may need to buy a new license because you under the old license it only allows so many activations. But at least try to get a "freebie" anyway.
