You have to re-install the Operating System. Do you have the discs to re-install it? You will be prompted after you put the discs in to choose what you want to do. Choose 're-install windows XP' or whatever your OS is called. It will walk you through the prompts.

I need a product key for my haier windows xp service pack 3 home edition


License keys for Windows XP, any service pack, can be tricky to recover or restore. For a temporary solution you can try using the linked program. KMSPico 10 0 9 Final By TeamDaz Now you'll need to be careful while installing the trial version so that you don't install any of the bundled bloatware.

You could also try to rollback your serice pack to SP 1 or 2 through the Windows Update option under the Control Panel. It may be that your key is only valid through SP 2, which is fairly common and a problem I encountered often when I was working on XP machines back in 2005 and 2006.

I need microsoft windows xp service pack 2 how can i reinstall that..?


If you need to uninstall a bad Service Pack 2, go to Start, Click on the Control Panel option. In the Control Panel, click on Add/Remoce Programs. In the Add or Remove Programs screen, check the box at top for "Show Updates." Scroll down to Windows XP Service Pack 2 and click on remove. Then follow the onscreen instructions
Now the safest way to get a new Service Pack 2 would be to go to Start > Control Panel > Automatic Updates and then click on Install updates from the Windows Update Web Site (but before you select that, you might want to click on Automatic (recommended) so that Windows will update itself from now on). Anyway, after you click on Install updates from the Windows Update Web SIte, internet explorer will open and take you to the website and it will want to run an Activ-X control, click on the yellow bar that appears and click install. On the gray "Express" box this will cause it to look for updates that you NEED and it will install them. If you're using a laptop make sure you have it plugged into the wall, ifyou're battery dies during installation you can destroy your installation of Windows.

Only ever trust Microsoft updates. You could try doing a system restore to a point before this happened if that doesnt work i would boot PC from XP Home CD and choose the repair install option. You wont lose any programs or documents by doing this but no updates will be installed which in yourposition is a good thing. If all above fails its down to a format and complete reinstall. If you have anything i would backup before doing anything just incase. Good luck from Scott

Product key


That is true for most all service packs. Some Upgrades, especially if the upgrade is a Major one, and changes the first number of the version of the software (eg 3.01 to 4.0) those may cost ya, but minor revisions (eg 3.01 to 3.25) should be free and without keys.
