compaq presario cq40-151tu with original xp

The problem with the original windows XP professional is the following prompt on startup (this copy of windows must be activated) after I press enter the activate windows appear but it is prompting that windows is already activated and this goes on in an infinite loop. This laptop was bought from global solution co ltd Thailand. Global solutions did not provide windows cd , sticker or key. I am finding problems in reinstalling window XP after the laptop tries to load from the CD it will prompt a blue screen with the following error: stop: 0x0000007B (0XF78D2524, 0XC0000034, 0X00000000, 0X00000000 )

Please note that the original windows is XP professional and i am still finding problems in re-installation

First of all I'm not microsoft or HP employee.

If you were using genuine XP, you must be given with COA, see it here 


About XP instalation errors, you need to use ICH9 sata driver, see futher detailon how to install XP in this thread
