That tells me his XP even though it may have been the same version as yours may have been a retail copy and not a OEM copy. The product keys will not work on the other.

OK but is the product key on your system or not on your system?
Does the product key you are using match the version of XP you are putting on?
OEM or Retail?

OEM Original Equipment Manufacturer... This comes with systems that are prebuilt like HP, Dell and Compaq.
Retail is one you buy in a store that has all the documentation with it. Oem doesn't have anything but the disk.
Since you need internet then we need to find the network driver for your system.
I need more information so I need you to do the following.


Download and install Free Everest Home Edition
Open it.
1: In left pane expand Computer folder.
2: Click once on Summary
3: In upper menu, go Report
4: And then to Quick Report-Summary
5: Save it in text file, and paste it in your next post.
Click the + by computer, click on Sensor. Get a screenshot and post it so I can check your temps and voltages...


DO NOT INCLUDE ANYTHING UNDER THE LINE THAT SAYS "DEBUG- PCI"

I'm still waiting on the Everest log so I can see what network adapter you have. Then I can find the correct driver for it so you can get online with the system in question.

So go HERE and get the second driver named Via Lan 10/100 Drivers dated for 2008-06-13. This should be your network drivers.

I sent my pc to a technician,he said it was all about dust and some wrong steps on format(bullshits).He installed win 7,added more ram,and did an upgrade,set up internet for me and my brother,router,wireless cards,shits etc.
All that costed me 150$.
Thanks for your help!I know the right place to come the next time i have a hardware related problem.
Cool off with the water,have a nice summer :)
