Ok, my windows XP that i put on my computer was never "authentic" so it gave me a 30 run of it and now it's up and says that i have to type in an authentic cd key, but it doesn't work.

How do i Uninstall windows xp if i can't actually run windows? or how do i reset my stuff so i can install the new OS I got?

If the 30 day time frame has expired, you need to either activate the current install, or reinstall windows with a genuine version of windows.

To install windows, set the CD/DVD drive as the 1st boot device in the BIOS. Then restart, and press a key when you see the prompt. This will start the format/install process.
