be careful when doing a reinstall, not every license key works with every XP cd even if they are the same Pro or Home, a lot of makers don't give you a free license with their computer, just their type license that works only with their type cd.

best bet is to contact the maker's site and ask about their computer directly.

Also don't forget that you have other options like system restore and repair with cd. Also the people here can advise you on how to clean up your system and remove old unneeded programs too.
