If you can no longer read your label you will need to go purchase a new copy to get this resolved. Manufacturers do not track these numbers so they will not be able to tell you what you had. Once you have bought a matching copy of windows you just need to type in the key. Be aware that they no longer sell windows XP so you will need to already be running windows 7. If not you will have to upgrade or reinstall the operating system.

Occasionally some Windows Vista user may need to activate his or her copy of Windows Vista operating system through phone activation, such as in situation where the computer is offline without Internet access. Other possible reason to use phone to activate instead of automatic online activation is failure or facing problem to activate Vista online, and user have to fallback to alternative.

For most users, activation process normally starts with attempt to activate Vista online. Online activation is simple and effective way to activate the copy of installed Vista, and when it fails or cannot activate successfully, then user can opt to activate by phone. If you want to skip and bypass online activation and go straight to activate Vista or Windows 7 by phone (i.e. in the case of offline PC with no Internet connection, do these steps:
  1. Click on Start Menu.
  2. Type slui.exe 4 into Start Search, and then press Enter.
  3. Go to step 10.
Normal activation procedures for Windows Vista, including fallback on phone activation:
  1. Click on Start Menu.
  2. Right click on Computer and then click Properties, or open the Control Panel -> System and Maintenance -> System icon.
  3. Scroll down to the Windows activation section and click on the Activate Windows now link.
  4. Click on Activate Windows online now. Note: If you have not entered a product key during installation, the wizard will ask for a genuine serial key. If you uncertain of the serial number key used, or want to change the key used, click on Change product key link.
    And, this step must fails in order to go to phone activation.
  5. If the online activation process, user can continue to attempt to activate using automated phone system by clicking on Use the automated phone system to activate option.
  6. Select your location and click on Next button when prompt to find available phone numbers for activation.
  7. Click Continue if prompted with UAC dialog box, except for those who had disabled UAC.
  8. A local phone number or nearest telephone number will be displayed on screen, together with a set of Installation ID (54 numbers in total - 6 numbers in 9 groups) generated by Windows.
  9. Call the activation phone number.
  10. The call will be answered by automated voice response (AVR) system, that asked caller to speak, or if voice recognition failed, press the phone button to enter the Installation ID listed behind "Step 2?. The numbers needed to enter is a lot (54). If you want simpler way to do it, just speak and enter anything to let automated service fails, and then wait for the call to transfer to activation operator (a real human). Sometimes, if for some reason the Installation ID entered is not accepted by the AVR, your call may be transferred to human operator too. Note: The human operator may ask for the reason that causes requirement of reactivation or activation of Vista. Just tell the truth, e.g. hardware upgrade, transferring to new PC (for non-OEM edition only) and etc.
  11. No matter who you talk to (machine or human CSO), a set of Confirmation ID numbers which consists of 48 digits (6 numbers in 8 groups) will be given if Microsoft believes that your copy of Windows Vista is genuine and legitimate. Write down the Confirmation ID.
  12. Back to Windows Vista, type in the Confirmation ID given by the phone system into the wizard boxes after the "Step 3?, and then click on Next button.
  13. The activation should be successfully done with Activation was successful window appears. Click on Close button to quit.

> 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.

I need key to activate my windows


You should purchase a genuine license key from Microsoft in order to activate your windows. I would advice that you just don't ask for it on the internet for free because it would mean software piracy that is punishable by law.

Microsoft logs all IP addresses that uses cracked microsoft licenses and would definitely detect you if you will use unlicensed keys. Please save yourself from trouble and purchase a genuine key for your own use.

Hello stercrzee.

I'm not quiet sure what your question is, however the message you are receiving means that the copy of windows on that PC is illegal. Someone installed it and reused someone elses serial key to activate it.

Windows will still work, you may have problem's downloading updates.

Basically you can report the person or company you bought the PC from, altho they will not do anything for you it will only get the seller in trouble. (They wont give you a valid copy of windows) so really it's upto you if you want to or not.

Post back if you have any question's. Thank you for choosing Fixya!
