So I recently built a computer and installed Windows XP. I validated it and it ran fine for 3 weeks. Now when I boot it up there is a prompt that says I have 7 days to validate product and asks if I want to do it now. I hit yes and it brings me to my desktop and a prompt that says this product has already been validated. That is a pain but doesn't hinder me. However, now neither of my mice work. When I try them in other computers they work fine. When I plug it into my new computer it beeps and says new hardware, and the mouse is able to move for like 2 secs then freezes up. Could this have something to do with the whole validating thing. It is very frustrating. What can I do?

Not knowing exactly what your problem is, I'd try a repair. Or, if you don't get a firm answer here, you can always email Microsoft. I've had good luck with them. Go figure.

you most likely will need to contact microsoft; the process is usually painless and takes about 10-15 minutes to verify your product as genuine; that will take care of the activation issue.

as you already have a thread going about the mice, let's keep this one about the activation issues so as to not duplicate answers.

thanks,
