Where the Dell is concerned, it's a remote possibility that entering the Service Tag reference into Dell's website and asking them for the Product Key might work but I have my doubts. Lenovo don't keep such good records as Dell.

That said, the OP would only be to reinstall using a Dell OEM XP CD. It's a lost cause really - and a cautionary tale to anyone considering buying pirated Windows software.

have you checked the event logs?

it might have info to solve the problem.

also have you installed SP3 and .NET, the printer might require .NET

Another thought - if the printer is a Lexmark that needs a Service of its own - LexBCE, I think. Even if a system used to have a Lexmark, that Service will always be required to run its Dependency, Print Spooler, even if the new printer is another make.
