Windows XP SP3 activation product key not valid..
Jun 1, 2012, 5:26 PM
I recently re-formatted my HD and reinstalled my original copy of WinXP SP3.
However, I am unable to get my WindowsXp Product key to work.
When I go to activate the 25 digit key, it keeps telling me that it is invalid.
I do not have the original paper with the key on it. I had to use a key-finder program to get the key from the registry.
Is Microsoft still activating Windows XP product keys? I only have 29 days to re-activate the product key and windows XP.

I just activated an OEM XP license yesterday so it's working.
The question is, is your key a legal one or did it get blacklisted?
You can always try the phone support if it's a valid key.
