I don't understand the question. What do you mean you "got WGA"?

Hi newcomer and welcome to the Tom's hardware forum.

@FALCON: I think that he refer to Windows Genuine Advantage.

Call to Microsoft, since ur OS are legal they can give to u a solution.

I get that part. I'm not sure what he is asking. This could be activation, the nag, windows update not working, etc. Or something else he is attributing to WGA. More info on the symptoms would be helpful.

Though its likely, a call to MS would lead to the solution as well.

WGA usually appears saying that ur OS isn't legal, I think that is the problem that he have.

Seems unlikely that a new hard drive would trigger that though. Wasn't may of 09 , or thereabouts, that last update to XP WGA?

I'm not sure, but I think that was released on March 24 2009 and June 26 2009.

The WGA have problems reporting many legal OS as note genuine, in that case u should contact to MS across e-mail, phone, or forum and they give to u the solution for the problem.
