Activating Windows XP
Well lately I have been getting quite a few customers asking me why they can’t activate their Microsoft Windows XP?! Questions like:
“I’ve gone past my 30 days and now I can’t logon to Windows XP because it keeps asking me to activate”
“I’ve tried to activate Windows XP over the internet and it keeps failing.”
Okay so let me make this simple for you all. Basically for you to be able to activate over the internet, you would need:
- An internet connection – Make sure you are connected to the internet at the time
- A valid version of Windows
So when you try to activate over the internet, it doesn’t work right? It’s not the end of the world. So what do you do now?
Some people never notice the part that says “Yes, I want to telephone a customer service representative to active Windows now”
Select that then continue on with the steps as all of them are quite basic.
Now say you have a problem where you do not have any digits in your installation ID, what then? Well to resolve this issue all you need is your Windows XP CD and do the following steps.
*Note* You have to make sure your computer is showing extentions for known file types.
Now after you are done with this step, restart your computer and try to reactivate your version of Windows and you should get an Installation ID.
The above solution usually fixes most of your Activation problems, some include:
