Yes

Once XP is activated shut down and install the New additional memory in the normal way (anti-staic procedures)


Then re start should be AOK!!

Microsoft allows up to three Hardware changes in bettewen activatons
do not seek re-activation unless promted and in any event remember the 30 days that you have to seek activation???

Ok, i get that, but after activation, if you want to reactivate, where do you go inside XP to find the phone number and such to reactivate. Or will you be prompted to reactivate after you install new hardware so that XP wont open. If this is the case, then its not the problem that i have been having because XP wont start and there is no prompt to reactivate XP. After i install new memory, is there anything I have to change in the BIOS to get everything working properly?
