Hello, I have a lap top that I tried to fix with xp pro but the key on the back is for xp home so now I can not even get the computer to start up. What is the best way to fix this? I also bought this lap top with pre loaded soft ware, so I didn't get a restore disk. Do I need to buy another disk to install and start over?

You can't use the windows home key for the XP Professional

Here is the easiest way for activate your windows pro:

Go through the following steps:

*Buy the license first.

*Download Key Update Tool, a utility provided by Microsoft to change the key of the Windows version installed.

*The download address is http://download.microsoft.com/download/8/3/7/83712767-395c-4327-8e87-38be7b0cf75f/KeyUpdateTool_enu.exe

*Double-click the utility will then check the system files.

*Enter the official key and click Next.

*Accept the license agreement and click Next.

*The key is legalized.

*Click Finish.

*Windows restarts.
