Default windows xp pro

i have a 100% legit windows xp pro and i reformatted yesterday.
It keeps asking me to activate windows but i can't because it says i have an invaled key.
i installed with a dell xp pro so how can i have an invalided xp pro disk and what can i do to fix it?

use the key on the side of the dell


My computer uses 1.5A-load, .8A-idle, .65A-standby, .05A-turned off on 125V.
