post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So I reinstalled my windows xp pro and was going to activate it.... but it won't give any numbers on the activation window. When I called the customer support # they told me my cdkey was for a OEM and my maching wasn't the right machine........ I purchased the xppro with this custom built comp... Customer service told me they couldn't help and that I would have to pay $35 dollars to talk to someone that could. ***???

Help please... So.. Confused.....

Look at my signature and run Belarc Adviser. It will give you the CD key for that copy of windows.

Did you do any upgrades before the reinstall? Some times windows will think you are trying to install it on another computer if you change your hardware, and not let you install it.

Thank you for the help. I was able to resolve my issue by trying the over the phone activation from the start instead of the internet one.
