You have to validate your product key with Microsoft.
It should be a simple matter it you have a valid unused "product key" the 25 character key that is printed on the COA sticker. If your key is a pirated copy or was registered on another computer then Microsoft will require you to buy a new copy of Windows.
If the key was registered a year or two ago, you can call the number Microsoft gives you on the validation screen. It will ask you to enter your product key and then ask you how many computers this copy of Windows is installed on. You answer ONE and it will give you a new series of characters to enter on your computer. The result will be the final re-verification of your Windows XP product key. Good Luck
