Unvalidating a Copy from Genuine Windows Advantage

HELP!!!

I had installed windows XP on my desktop, then accuried a used laptop with Linux, so updated it to my older copy of windows XP.  I had thought I had already "Genuinely" validated my desktop system, but i guess I hadnt, so I validated the laptops copy.  Now, I cannot install IE7 Beta 1 or anything else because it cannot validate.  How do I "un" validate the laptop?????


Thanks.
