Answer

To properly analyse and solve problems with Activation and Validation, we need to see a full copy of the report produced by the MGADiag tool (download and save to desktop - http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 )
Once saved, run the tool.
Click on the Continue button, which will produce the report.
To copy the report to your response, click on the Copy button in the tool (ignore any error messages at this point), and then paste (using either r-click/Paste, or Ctrl+V ) into your response.
 

The report will give the license type, and we can make an (highly) educated guess as to hether it's genjuine or not here.

If you want details then post the report to the Win XP Genuine forum here....

http://social.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/genuinewindowsxp/threads

where Darin, the forum owner, has tools which can discover the activation history of your Key.
