My lap top was loaded with a suspended os recently and I was given a link to use to change to a new (they verified this new key as okey) replacing the XP key that is bad and leaves my computer locked up.


Does anyone know this link or a Freeware program I can use? :tophat:

To be able to activate a valid installation, you need to be using the OEM product key attached to your laptop (COA label) or a retail/upgrade product key supplied with a product you own.
