Window XP Home Edition Reinstallation?

I had to Reinstall Windows on my Dell laptop.
Now all my Documents are jumbled. Turns out, I somehow do not have the good old fashioned version of Microsoft Word that I once had. How do I get that back? My laptop came with a WordPerfect disk so I installed that. It only made things worse. I have too many documents to try to fix them within WordPerfect. Can anyone help me?

    Thanks. I assumed that Office was in my PC's OEM Package.
    Looks like I'll have to try out the 2007 Trial Version to see if I like it.
    Thanks again.

If you did a reinstall of the Microsoft Widows XP or Vista and expected Microsoft Word documents to be usable without also reinstalling Microsoft Word you are out of luck. Microsoft Word is a seperate software suite. You can do one of the following:
1. Use openoffice to work with the word docs (openoffice.org for the free download)
2. Get ahold of MS Office from either a store purchase or a friend with a volume license.
3. Download from Microsoft.com the trial version of MS Office 2007 and use it until the trial runs out.

Hope this helps.

I need to reinstall windows xp home edition i have the product code but no disk


I have used full install/ disk from other brands of computers (or other dell model numbers)to reinstall operation system (must be winxphome, dont worry about service pack, you can update). If you use any dell reinstallation cd, most likely you will not have to enter your key. If you use any other computer brand, or borrow someones xphome full install disk (not upgrade), then you will need to enter your key. Only problem of using for example emachine full install disk is that is will have emachine themes. Also you will likely need to down load other drivers. You are not lemited to to using reinstall cd for your model number. Good luck

Will my Dell Windows XP Reinstallation disk work


Usually not,usually hard drives are built with a hidden recovery partition that stays intact even if your operating system is not,and the cd just runs off this. unless you have a complete operating system but they never give you these out .

Cannot complete installation of windows xp home edition


Have you added or changed your computer's hardware since you purchased your computer? Your Dell reinstallation disk will probably only work for the original configuration of your machine. If this is the case, dust off your old parts, remove your newer parts, then reinstall your old ones to get your system back to its original configuration. Once there, try the reinstallation again.
If this does not apply to you (or you can't get it to work), you can always purchase the operating system new (from newegg, tigerdirect or similar) and install from a disk that will have all of the drivers you need. OEM versions are cheapest, but you are on your own for support in the event of a problem. I hope this helps.

Slow boot up for Dell Inspiron 2200 - Celeron


Yes, You should back up all your documents, photos, music, etc and reinstall the OS. Unfortunately, Windows is a fundamentally flawed system, and is easily overcome by viruses and even programs designed specifically for it. Reinstallation is the easiest solution for you at this stage.
