Problem validating windows xp
I have a Dell Latitude 131L that’s perhaps two years old. I’d loaned the machine to a friend for a while who’d recently returned it.
Each distribution is Linux, but they are not necessarily binary compatible with each other (i.e.
When you activate over the Internet, your copy of Windows checks in with Microsoft and reports its product key.
If your Windows product key is non-genuine (in other words, a pirated key) or is being used on another computer, the activation process will fail. Windows provides a code you type in over the phone, and you’ll have to enter the code it responds with into your computer.
And after an hour and a half on the phone, I was no further along. Operating systems are the software that control the operation of a computer and provide a consistant interface, or API, that programs use to access the features and functionality of the operating system and computer.
I used it as a testbed and installed Ubuntu Linux Linux is an operating system, just as Microsoft Windows or Apple’s Mac OS are operating systems.
I’d recommend you try the first set of instructions to begin with, the second set is provided in case you can’t get the first working.
If you bought Windows XP and have been unlucky enough to fail the validation (which isn’t uncommon) then you might just want to remove it altogether.
If you’re a raging software pirate then I’m going to have a tougher job convincing you to keep it.
You can also talk to a real person, which is useful if the activation process is failing.
For example, if you’re moving Windows to a new computer, you may have to talk to a real person and explain the situation before they’ll allow Windows to activate.
