My computer wont log on!

By sebblucas ·
Hello TechRepublic,

My name is Sebastien Lucas. I am experiencing a frustrating problem with my computer for it won't let me log on! I activated Windows a while ago, and now when i tried logging on, it says that windows must be activated. So I click on YES, and it takes me to the Windows Product Key Activation wizaard, but it simply says: "Windows Has already been activated." I clicked on the only button ("OK") and it simply logs me off again! So, if you look at it one way, I can't log on at all! Maybe a boot diskette that edits window's registry would help fix the problem alot... Please reply soon. I am really concerned about this issue. Thank you.

Call Microsoft Support and get a new Activation Product Key.

Try starting it in Safe Mode and see if you can get into the OS.

Lets know how you get on.

Hi,

The cycle of register / logging out sounds like what happens after the period of grace to register ( 30 days).

Try changing you system clock in BIOS to a date near when you first installed XP and see if you can now enter the OS

You should be prompted to activate at which point you can contact Microsoft to obtain a new activation code. You say it's not that easy, but it has been in the past.

It's either that or wipe and re-install.
