Need a valid product code


bought a computer (used,AS-IS). There was no memory on it and i had someone put their copy of XP in it. It works fine, but it keeps saying i have 28 days to activate windows. I've tried to activate but it keeps saying the product code is wrong. My question is will Windows stop working when these 30 days are over? Thanks in advance for your reply.Keep in mind I know absolutely nothing about computers!
