I have an old desktop PC running Windows XP that I am formatting back to factory settings in the hope of selling it for a few quid.
I have the Windows XP CD but I have lost the manual with the key on. I used a piece of software that recovered the key for me and so I reformatted the PC and started to reinstall windows. However, when it came to entering the key, it said it was incorrect (I triple checked that I had wrote the key down right)
Anyway, after a quick google search, I found that I can retrieve the key from the actual CD. So I followed the path and I did find the key (which was differet to the 1st one I had), however, upon enter the key, I recieved the same 'key is incorrect' message.
So two keys, but still no luck? Anyone have any suggestions?
