Solved where can i purchase a win xp product code?

June 24, 2011 at 04:28:26
Specs: Windows 7
I have an old computer that is very low on resources so it was suggested that i install win xp on it and was supplied the disk for this but the friend that gave it to me no longer has the unlock code.

He no longer has this installed on any of his computers so i thought that it might be safe to install on my secondary computer.

I checked microsoft but didn't get anywhere.

Hoping that someone can help.
thanks Linda In Australia.

Even though he hasn't got it installed on any of his computers, has he still got the original XP sticker on the side/back of any of the computers? - that has the activation key on, assuming it's the same version. May be worth asking.

Thank You John Rfor your suggestion and that it was what i asked him myself and he was able to give me the sticker. When he installed many years ago he forgot that he peeled the sticker off and put it on the back on the computer.

Shortly after I posted this question he rang me and gave me the code.

Good, & thank you for letting us know how you got on. It really is frustrating when you post a reply and never hear from the original poster as to whether it produced any results, so thank you for taking the effort to do so.

Yes i no how annoying that can be years ago i used to be on another advice forum and it happenen to me so i gave up.....

Some people are so rude they don't bother to let you no the out come or bother to say thanks.

I figured that you took the time to read my dilema and reply and so you should be given the courtesy to be thanked. Same as in real life.
