I have a HP laptop with XP home and I have reinstalled at least three times and never have I had it validated. My PC I have to have Validated every time I reinstall.

I have a HP laptop with XP home and I have reinstalled at least three times and never have I had it validated. My PC I have to have Validated every time I reinstall. There is nothing easier than having it validated on line as all that you do is to click a button to "Validate Now"

Go to Start, Run and type oobe/msoobe /a and a windows will open telling you what the status of activation is.

It will tell you if it needs validating and give you plenty of time before the 30 days is up.

The procedure is dead simple. As long as you're on line then it's as Phphred says. If not, then there is a number to ring - the procedure is easy.
