hey dudes,

i have windows xp (oem), however ive just had one or two issues with my computer which ive decided to format and start again.

when looking at my windows xp cd, i realised in the case that i've lost the activation code, and after spending 8 hours searching.....im now very upset

any body have any clues on wether i can gain the code from a different source....is it burried in the computer somewhere (windows xp is still on the computer) or will i have to buy a new windows xp cd.....

thanks
simon

westdudes, Do you still have the system running?
If you do, you can find your current product key from the system registry. 'Run' "regedit"...

Get Belarc... as that will give all your product keys.
