After making a backup copy you may be able to buy a valid copy of xp and do a repair. This should go back and ask you to enter a lisence number(which if you buy a copy you should have) then you would be all set. MAKE SURE YOU DONT DO A CLEAN INSTALL AS THIS WILL FORMAT YOUR HARD DRIVE AND YOU WILL LOSE EVERYTHING, unless you have that backup copy and just want to.
If you plan to go ahead and upgrade to vista I am afraid you will have to have that backup copy to prevent losing your music and pictures. I may be wrong but i am 99.9% positive that upgrading to vista requires a reformat.
Hope something in that helps out!

Be sure that the sticker on the bottom of the computer has the full Windows product key number - that's the most important thing right now.
