I hope you can help, my husband has been given a laptop for work use, it is mainly for diagnositc use, and so an old model is fine. It came with Windows 2000 installed and had not really been used at all, and as it turns out not connected to the net for updates for ages....
My ever helpful son connected to the net and allowed windows to update, and we believe it installed service pack 4. Upon restart we are now required to add the product key.....we have entered in the one on the bottom of the laptop, but no joy! It tells us the key is not valid.
It seems to have completely installed a new program, and seems to be going through a new full setup! We have no new product key, and have no idea what to do now.
All help greatly apprectiated, as we cannot get into anything on the lap top at all!
Thanks in advance, Annabell
