It a dell 2200 inspiron laptop. I loaded win XP from an OEM disk, which came with the laptop. Everything was fine until yesterday when I booted the computer up. It asks me to activate windows each time I log on, why is this? Do I just put in the same key that I entered when I loaded XP the first time? Funny thing is, even though I see the prompt to activate windows, when I go to start, run and type msoobe oobe /a, it says windows is already activated.
Do I need to activate windows, or what do I need to do to make that reminder go away?
