Question about HP Pavilion a710n (PJ508AA) PC Desktop
This may work for you, but then again, it may not... Get your system up and running normally, don't boot from the OS Install disc. Once your system is on, place the OS Install disc into your optical drive.
As Auto-Run tries to initiate, Cancel the operation. Open up "Computer", right click your dvd-rom, and go to "explore" or "open". You will have to find a hidden text document with the title of "unattend". Inside that text document, you will find the OS Product Key for that particular disc. Try using that key for the Activation of your Windows OS.

If its not a Dell motherboard the original restore disks wont work. See if you can borrow a XP disk or download one free from http://thepiratebay.org/ and do a complete reinstall. Cheers and please vote
