Does HIV Virus Revive Within Fresh Blood??

I know that, the HIV virus(or infected blood) become inactive when it is outside the body.As the virus is outside of its host,rendering it inactive and no transmission.
But  the virus which has been exposed to air and become inactive,contact the fresh blood inside other's body.Does the virus revive again?Become active again?Making the new guy infected??

I am sorry for this question,but i am really anxious! Because my Vein(left arm) was hurt by a solid needle maybe with positive blood !  Please help me,please.

No it can't become active again. Lancets and solid needles cannot sustain the virus like syringe needles.
