Default I used my windowsxp serial too many times. Now what?

I have clean installed windows xp many times successfully except for this last time. When I entered my product key a message saying that I have used my serial number too many times popped up. Is there any way around this? I have not been giving out my serial number to anyone and shouldn't be restricted from my own software.
