It's the product key that you need, is it on the back of your tower unit by any chance?

Is XP installed on the computer righ now?


Did you buy XP or did it come with the computer?

if ya copy of XP is already installed on ya pc, you can find out what ya product key is with a prog called aida32. open the prog click on +cross next to operating system, click on operating system and all on ya copy of XP is listed including product key.

heres link to aida32 click here if ya aint got it.

ya may have problems getting help to get the key from people on the site unless ya can prove its a genuine XP and not pirate.

Keyfinder is good for this and Office XP as well.If you want a copy I can e-mail it in a zip to you.

download productID from click here it reads the registry at HKEY_local_machine\software\microsoft\windowsNT\current version\productid
