It seems that you have XP professional installed on your computer. Previously I asked you to borrow a home edition. Can you get xp pro installation disk? If yes, repeat the procedure mentioned in my previous post.


I tried with both CDs. I wasn't even aware there was a CD number 2 to begin with.

As much as you don't like it I think that your best option is to restore Dell's installation. This way you can return the system to it's original state, you will have the original drivers and you are free of the trouble of having a product key. Backup your data before.

If you wouldn't have Dell's option I would recommend an XP repair job. Frankly, I dont like this procedure and quite often you end up with more troubles then you started with.

I guess it's time to burn the [bleep] out of some DVD-RW's and backup all my things. At least I'll feel clean when I'm done. :whistling:
