You should ring up MS again and explain the problem. When they give you the new code, enter it before you close your communication so that any typos can be ironed out.

You should stay on the phone until you have inserted the code you have been given and proved that it works.

"thats what i did i stayed on the fone while i typed it in one handed and it still didn't work"

And what did they say when you told them the code didn't work?

they said for me to fone up the technicle support for the manufacturer of the computer

So is your XP an oem version? If it is then phoning the manufacurer is a good idea!

i did and the manufacturer said the best idea would be to format the pc and to start afresh thats what the manufacturer said
