Hey recently I tried to install a sound driver for my onboard audio(wasnt working), when my pc crashed and wouldnt boot. From then i installed ubuntu and "bought" a copy of windows xp OEM. it installed alright and everything seemed to be in order but then i couldnt go to the internet. I didnt even have an IP according to cmd -> ipconfig. I'm pretty sure its not the hardware because im using the internet on the same computer with ubuntu on a partition. I called my ISP only to learn they couldnt help me. :whistling:


Any help would be appreciated tnx!

I don't think its necessary where I got it from but I'm pretty sure it's legitimate.


I fully support the company and have purchased their software before, however I couldn't find my original disk so I had to find it elsewhere.

It's essential to establish where you got it from as GeeksToGo only provides assistance with legitimate software
