Hi my pc has had alot of problems recentley and wouldnt load up to windows,
so i decided to reinstall xp by booting it up from the start.
However when i get to the stage where it asks for the product key it says
the code is invalid when i know its the correct one, Is there anyway around
this because i really need to get this pc reinstalled and dont want to have
to buy another xp cd.
Thank you in advance

Are you using the Product Key that came with that CD?
There are several different types and they are not interchangeable.
If that key worked with that CD before, it will work now.

Look very carefully, O-0. B-8, G-6 and others look alike.
Have someone else try, sometimes another set of eyes and fingers can get it.
