A lot of people look at a topic to see what the problem description is and then move on because they do not feel they can make a positive suggestion. Very few of us know the answers to everything - and I don't trust that person !

 

I think the simplest thing for you to do is to give MS a ring, you should find a local free phone number if you google for it, and get them to sort it out.

Activation is still available online for XP, but I don't know if Microsoft would help you over the phone since support has ended and they are not under obligation to help you.

 

Simply, you can click the Start button, then Run, and type %systemroot%\system32\oobe\msoobe.exe /a
 

This will allow you to re-enter your product key on your machine sticker and reactivate it. Otherwise you'll most have to purchase a new license.
