Get Windows XP Product Key for Free
Sign in to vote For the past 7 months I’ve been running a small computer repair operation out of my house to make a little extra money. So far it’s been hassle free. Reported a few pirated keys, a shifty Kijiji ad, and fixed everyone’s computer along the way. Well, during the set up progress it wouldn’t accept the Product Key from the side of the tower so I figured “Well maybe it’s because it can’t connect to the internet because I use a Belkin Basic Wireless USB adapter for the PCs I fix so I went through the rest of the install without a hitch.
Installed the adapter and went to activate Windows using the key and it says that it cannot validate and “activate by telephone” so went through that crazy process of reading off the numbers and it tells me the Product Key isn’t genuine So just out of curiosity I used a known pirate key and it said to activate by phone again.
Did the crazy number reading and, go figure, it validates. Went to the WGA site and it said it wasn’t genuine, naturally. So I reinstalled Windows again without a key and tried the process again with the genuine code and still received the same message to “Activate by Telephone”. This person is dead set on keeping this product key, and this version of Windows.
So, any suggestions? I’ve tried everything I could imagine to no avail. Figured actual Microsoft Reps may be able to help me. I refuse to pay HP for a couple of recovery disc. Also, on a side note. I recently bought an XPS M used off a customer who was planning on throwing it out. However, the sticker is ripped and a small portion of the code is missing. If you think you can help me, I’ll message you with the portion of the code I have. There are exactly 4 characters missing, and I can even provide a picture of the sticker if you need.
Since I want my repair business to be taken seriously, I wanted to be absolutely genuine. Saturday, May 7, 8:
