I just build a new pc from nothing. I've got everything running, I installed XP and when I try to login for the first time I get an error "A problem is preventing windows from accurately checking the lincense for this computer. Error Code: 0x80004005" I don't understand this because it is a full version of XP. Please help as I need this pc up and running ASAP.

Thanks

Have you activated that CD yet ?  Is that a new windows xp CD that you have not installed on any other machine

If it is a full install and you havn't done anything yet, do a repair install or format the drive and do a full install.
