Sadly as the next link shows there must but many running around making problems for people like you. Your OS and current CDKEY is pirated so there is no help for that except to install the XP Home you have proper.

To fix your XP Pro will cost hundreds of bucks. Using your XP Home that came with the PC is... free.

Read this link.

I'm always sorry to read posts like yours.

We have two of these at work. Ours have the option to create a restore disk from a concealed partition. You could check to see if this option is available on yours, it should be, unless your tech guy removed it. To find what the current key is use the'magic Jellybean keyfinder' or 'Belloc Advisor' download.

But if you follow the maker's notes about how to reinstall it should be fine.
