    I have an acer travelmate 370 laptop... it came preinstalled with windows xp professional (oem version).
    few days ago, i formatted my system and had to reinstall the OS (pirated one) coz i didnt get any cd with the lappy.. but i have that sticker pasted on the back of lappy (with serial no.) saying microsoft windows cp 1-2cpu acer incorporated..
    this copy of windows is not activating(why would it!!!)
    i tried changin the key but the key which i have is not working...
    what should i do????

    Rewrite the product key with the s/n in sticker (for this, there are a few tools available on the net, one was even recently mentioned in the forum) and reactivate legally... If that does not work, contact acer...

    get a copy of the oem cd (pirated would be enough, or get it through a p2p) and use ur own serial, itz legal.
