I called Microsoft once for a new product key and a second time for a replacement xp cd. Both times they wouldn't give me what I asked for, not even the price of a replacement cd! I think they wouldn't do it because I don't have a product id, which I told them clearly, I can't get because I can't get onto the pc and access it. They say the same thing every time, call compaq [who won't help me anyways besides telling me to use the recovery cd and delete all of my data or call microsoft] or buy a new $200 cd. It seems Microsoft doesn't want
to help anyone who has windows preinstalled on their computer. They really make me not want to buy anything windows again.
