The key is either in the bottom of your laptop or on the sides of the pc, if you don't have a key you have to buy the product From Any Pc Store Or Dealer

Your key isn't necessarily on your CD or its case. Sometimes there's a sticker under the keyboard or in the front of the system manual, or in/on the sidepanel of the PC. For service pack 2 versions like yours, perhaps you kept the fancy certificate of XPness (with key) someplace you remember?

Alternately, of course you can install another OS like Solaris or MacOS X (you get to throw down for that, and it tends to need certain CPUs) or license a spare copy of WinXP, or pick another OS from guides and sources like OSNews.

Microsoft Windows XP has been declared illegal in its bundling by courts, and rootkit viruses shipped on Sony music CDs in the recent past, so do not go calling keys or sites illegal or piratic unless you must. You will want to run antivirus or ICE if you relax your trust criteria for software; if you know Microsoft XP release and update team people well, maybe you trust that better. Could we tell if they (or Symantec) sold us out to Zimbabwe; perhaps by tracking the trail of XBox points?

We cannot give out the key, as it will be illegal. What you can do is temporarily using you friend's key, or any other that work on the version you are installing. After installing change the activation key with your one, either with activation or with windows keychanger.
You may need to do activation by phone, and chose to speak to a representative in phone options.
There are also illegal keys on the internet (most popular is one starting with fckgw ...) but some of the pirate sites distributing them also spread viruses, and their use is illegal.
Moreover, with a non genuine Windows key your system will not enable some feature as automatic updates.

Dear, i reinstall window xp professional on first it asked me product key which i put after window install it again asked activation code. when i click on it window open and bring a screen with different...


> I reinstall Windows XP Professional .. it asked me [for] product key.

What CD-ROM did you use -- the CD-ROM supplied by the manufacturer (Dell, HP, eMachines, ACER) or a "non-genuine" copy on a CD-recordable disk?

Did you copy the product-key from the decal on the side-panel of the desktop
(or the decal on the bottom of the laptop) ?

Were you connected to the Internet when it "again" asked for the activation code?
If so, Windows has connected to Microsoft, to compare your product-key to a list
of "bad" ("compromised") license-keys, and it found a MATCH, indicating that you
have a "non-genuine" copy of Windows XP.

Please supply more details.

Cant access my pc at all coming up with load Dlls


Insert the installation CD and restart/reboot the computer. Hit Enter or Space or any key when the plain text prompt at the top of the screen asks if you want to boot from the CD. Usually, you don't want the first Repair option it gives you because that puts you into the unfriendly DOS/command environment. Choose the second Repar option (if you get it, which you don't always) on the next screen and tell it to repair the installation of Windows that it should find for you. It might ask for the Administrator password. If there is no password, just leave that blank, and proceed.

Unable to reinstall windows xp


try it again with the bootable floppy disk... if you have the option use fdisk /mbr and then format the computer and reinstall using the cd you have. the fdisk /mbr command will get rid of any virus residing in your master boot record.
