    Hi, I am building a new computer and need help with reinstalling XP. I installed XP and all the drivers, then I did the activation. After I activated and restarted it, when I clicked on my name to log on it would say the product is not activated and I would have to activate it. So I clicked yes to activate it and did it again. Then, I restarted it again and the same thing came up, so I clicked yes again and it took me to a screen saying my activation was complete and to push ok to continue so I did. But, After I hit ok it took me back to the login screen and the same process over again. It is just doing the same thing every time I try to log on. I need help, please any thing is appreciated. Thanks

    Hi and welcome to TSG.

    I would be inclined to give Microsoft a ring and explain the situation.
    There used to be finite number of times that you could re-install your O/S ( 5 I think ) not sure if that still applies ?? - but after explaining your validation problem you should be given a different key which should get you sorted with bit of luck :)
