    Uhm, if it's windows XP you can't install without a CD-Key

    or are you talking about a activation code?

    you can try booting to safe mode with command prompt, and then run explorer.exe from the command prompt to get one last chance. Most of the time when that happens, i boot to the command prompt and SYSPREP the machine, and that gives me another 30 days Just note you can only sysprep it 6 times i think. then you are fubar

    Talking

    I wont post the full thing.

    Is the key code i need:
    G3HWK-YV9JR-*****-*****-*****

    Right, then. I'm as thick as 2 very short very thick planks when it comes to things like this.

    I can reach the screen that shows my user name next to a box.

    And its got a (click here to switch of pc) button in the bottom.

    It caome up with a box asking "Do you want to activete this now" "yes" "no"

    I click "yes" and nothing happens.

    How do i do that sysprep thing?


    Thanks lads.

    I am welsh! Think thats a good enough excuse!!

    Sounds like you have a bigger issue, it should be giving you a activation window, did you do anything funky to the install like n-lite?

    Ive just disconected the hard drive. booted up again waited for it to do a little search and in the process of re instaling windows. should let me begin the 30 day thing again? Should'nt it?

    Hope so.

    google has lots of info on WPA and ways around your particular problem...

    There are also Key testing/generating programs you can DL. Beware though, nearly all will have some kind of Trojan bundled with them or as ActiveX components on the pages you DL them from...

    Format and reinstall is probably the easiest way to proceed if you aren't great with windows...
