    I installed Windows XP (on a different machine than I'm using now). The 30 day activation grace period expired before I got hooked up to the internet, and now I can't start up anything. Is there a way to register now that I have the internet so that I may use my good CPU?:confused:

    You can't use a single XP license concurrently on 2 PC's. With that disclaimer, go to start>all programs>accessories>system tools>activate windows.

    You may have to activate over the phone. It's a bit tedious but it works.
