ok,so its the original disk that came with the laptop ,and it will not take the key from the back side of the laptop,or is it a different copy, possible miss type of number ,sometime this problem can be caused when using a winxp cd with SP2 ,on a original install that was only SP1.you may need to borrow/use a disk that is SP1

So you are doing the second Repair option where it does a install over previous winxp install !!right ,
You do know that what you've done you were suppose to back up all important data just in case ,you may need to interrupt the install and take the harddrive out to put in another computer as slave and retrieve the data ,and do a fresh reinstall of winxp my opinion anyway .only thing i can think of on this topic i said in my other post about the sp1 ans 2 issue ,sorry
