X P activation

I have bought a new P.C. with X.P pre-loaded.
Upon booting up for the first time I received a message " you have seven days to activate windows X.P" whereupon the seven days reduced daily until I was unable to get into windows at all.

Pressing alt ctrl delete brings up this message,
"windows is allready activated, enter user name and password" as I don't know the user name or password as windows was preloaded, and I am having problems tracing the person who built the P.C.( a friend brought it over to spain for me)I am unable to enter the details to use it.
Any help would be very much appreciated.

I take it that you don't have a Win XP CD right ?

No I don't.

click here does this help you? I'd try and contact microsoft. Surely your friend should know where they got the computer?

I'd get in touch with your friend and ask him, if you bought the pc brand new then you should have both the XP disk and the activation code, or someone is pulling a fast one, and installed an illigal copy of XP on your machine.
