Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional
Windows activation is right. Your do not have a legal installation of XP. It works strictly on fact and bases its results on a long list of legalities. It has nothing to gain by "lying" to you and everything to lose. You should speak to the company that sold you the computer or anyone that reinstalled XP for you and have them resolve this problem.
However, if you still think that you have a legal copy of XP you can try re-entering the key. The process is to deactive XP and then reactiveate it using the new product key. Here is a decent tutorial:
Hopefully, this will take care of things.
However, if it does not work it means that the product key you are using cannot legally active the copy of XP installed on your computer. (Ex. XP-OEM, XP-Retail, XP-MAPS CD-ROMs each have a specific set of product keys that are not interchangeable.)
If this helps please vote for my solution.
