Recently I had to reinstall the software due to a system's crash and my monitor dying on me. Managed to pick up a new monitor for free from some friends of mine. I have been having problems installing and registering Windows XP.
Installation seems to work well, but whenever I attempt to register Windows XP online the code I have keeps coming back as an error.
Part of the problem, I fear, is that I am not sure if the original CD's for this computer still exist somewhere around the house. Hence, I had to use the two CD's from my laptop, which may account for the registration problem. So what are my options?
If I take off the Windows XP from my laptop pc, will it allow me to register it on my desktop pc? If I buy a new Windows XP package how would is that going to run me and what happens if I cannot find the original CD's that came with the computer?
