Well on my gaming pc, a virus got in and i had to reformat my pc. When i went to reinstall xp, it said the cd key (which is on the side of the computer) is invalid. Is there a way to fix this?

Hi joeeyyboyy,

I suggest you contact Microsoft directly and tell them what happened. Here are a few links:
XP Home Support
XP Pro Support
XP Media Center Edition
XP x64 Edition

They are easier to work with than you think :thumbsup: Good luck...
