Badly Need Help! XP Activation Problem??
I hope You'll be able to help me.
Today, I decided to upgrade my video card drivers (6600 GT).
I've downloaded new driver forceware 81.95. Uninstalled my
old driver and... then it all began...
I have rebooted my system and when I tried to login into my
Windows XP account, I got an error saying that I need to
activate my windows xp, otherwise it loggs me off. My XP was
activated, but I'm not sure what happened.
Anyway, I tried to activate by internet, but I connect via DSL,
and I need to use connecting program. XP offers me to automatically
detect my internet settings, but it doesn't find anything. Tried to
connect via Proxy, but no luck either.
I didn't call them for confirmation ID, cause I live outside US. I
hope maybe I'll be able to find help here...
Anyway, tried to repair windows from CD, it reinstalled XP, but still
the same thing. Then I decided to install fresh XP installation, next
to the other. It worked. I can see my C:/ disk files that were on old
windows, but can't access my documents in user account that I had. It
says Docs and Setting/AccName is not accessible. Access is denied.
I could reinstall my windows and format C:, but I have important files
on my old windowses. So the situation is that I have 2 XP operating
systems on my C: disk, one works and is activated (I'm using it now),
other requires activation and I can't access my important files.
I thought, maybe it's possible somehow to get access to that account
from this winXP version by changing something in regedit.
Other thing, find out "50 or 42 digit confirmation ID" somewhere and
enter it when prompted in phone registration option.
Don't know any other ideas...
Please, help if you have any ideas...
