change the serial number

  Spr 16:06 11 Feb 05

My machine has been away for repair, I was told they had too re-install Windows XP. I now find my own copy of Windows XP is now not recognized. I would like to change it back to my own Serial Number. I think I once saw a programme on Helpdesk how to change the serial number.

If you phone Microsoft they will give you a new serial number, don't know if they can give you the original one though. Might be worth asking them.

On the other hand, have the repairers installed a new copy? That may well be more complicated.

Received by email (not a good idea because it can take a while to get answered and others who might be able to help can't see it!)

They put a new version of Windows XP I have my own copy of Windows XP with a different serial number

My suggestion would be to do a re-install of YOUR copy.
