Question about Computers & Internet
This may not what you want to hear, but you may need to purchase a legal copy of Windows XP Pro to use with this system. You said that you have Windows XP Home. If you have a licensed copy of Windows XP Home (not an OEM copy designed for use with a certain system that you owned), you may be able to reinstall Windows XP Home.
Apparently, the person who sold you the computer, did not have a valid copy of the Windows XP operating system. The person who sold it to you knew that the copy was not legal.
What are the details of your purchase - did you buy it without checking it ? Did you buy it used from a store ? If so, can you return it ? Do you have a receipt and a cancelled check ?
Hope this helps.
