"Error Code: 0x80004005? error message when you install Windows XP
You may receive error code 0x80004005 or other error codes when you try to start a Windows XP-based computer
This error can also occur if the computer is using a pirated version of XP. The Service Pack update blocks the bogus product key and tells you about it.
Hope this helps.
Okay, so I'm having this problem.
I am running on Windows XP and one day I decided to Start Using Service Pack 2. I installed it and everything seemed to be working fine and then it asked me to restart my computer so it could work. I restarted it and ever since then when I turn on my computer it goes to the screen where I would type in my password and I click Administrator and type my pass and then it says "A problem is preventing Windows from accurately checking the license for this computer. Error Code: 0x80004005"
If someone could tell me how to get my computer to work again that would be great and if you can please try to keep it simple becuase I'm only 17 and dont know a whole lot about computers.
