  • Alternatively, you can open the Windows Product Activation wizard by clicking Start, then Run, and type in "oobe/msoobe /a".
  • If you do not have a modem or an Internet connection, you can activate your copy of Windows by calling a Microsoft customer service representative. Activating Windows is fast and does not require your name or other personal information.
  • If you have not yet activated Windows XP, you can initiate activation at any time by clicking the Windows Activation icon in the system tray. Once you have activated Windows XP, this icon disappears from the system tray.If you choose not to activate now, reminders will appear periodically during the next 30 days. After that time has expired, you will be required to activate in order to continue to use Windows.

I have valid product key how to get Windows XP activation key


your product key is your ticket to get activated with windows and is also you activation key, which called product key by Microsoft,

whatever windows you have installed on your system I believe when you installed your windows you were asked to enter the product key on the onset of starting windows during installation, if I may ask are you getting an error when entering you Product key or are you getting a pop up that you windows is Not genuine? cause if your product key is valid then you should not be having any issue regarding your product key, was you installer of windows purchased from a retailer or Microsoft itself? if from Microsoft call them they can help you out, if from a retailer and the product key is not being accepted call them and inform them that the disc and the product key don't match they should replace at last the disc or give you the correct product key for the disc sent to you, if the disc you have came from the laptop or computer manufacturer then you will need to call them it is possible that they have a way to correctly install the Operating system without having an error.

Back up your personal data like pictures and word documents if you have some in the system just to be on the safe side ^_^

are you installing windows 7 over an existing Vista operating system or an XP? if you are then you try installing windows 7 over the old operating system installed on your pc but in the installation process you will have an option to select upgrade or custom/advance option which you should select to be able to use your product key and should not give you any errors after the installation. ^_^

Ask for genuine microsoft software


It appears you have a pirated copy which is not legit or a repair shop has installed XP but then used their key instead of yours. All you can do is call Microsoft and provide them with the key you have and see if they can help. To get the correct phone # go through the process of activation and when it asks how you want to activate choose by phone. It will give you the number in your area. Leave the computer where it is and call Microsoft. To start activation follow these directions curtorsey of: Microsoft.
  1. Click Start.
  2. Point to All Programs.
  3. Point to Accessories.
  4. Point to System Tools.
  5. Click Activate Windows.

Key for windows


Hi there.
You can install it 3-5 times on 1 machine.
You can do the activation by phone. Run the Activation Wizard, and it will give you a toll-free number to call to speak to an operator. You then read off a (rather lengthy) code number to the operator, who responds with an (equally lengthy) activation code number that you type in. The operator will stay on the line until you see that activation has been completed.
You have to tell them that you had a hard drive failure to get them to give you the code so you need to sound convincing.

Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

Activation is a form of copy protection, in which each copy of XP must be turned on by registering it with Microsoft. The copy of Windows XP is then uniquely associated with a particular computer, thus preventing pirating of the operating system by using the same disk to upgrade multiple machines.

Upon re-installation, the registration files were wiped too.
You can call microsoft anytime to reactivate your Windows XP.
Here is the number: 1-888-571-2048

Try to call your local Microsoft office in India and let them know your problem they will give some important instruction how to do it.

Once you install the legal copy of windows it is necessary to inform them that you are going to activate the system. Most of the installer will provide a toll free number use to call.

Please rate me Solved if you like my solution.
