Try Ubuntu, its free

You would have to call the PC's manufacturer and pay money for them to send you a recovery CD - Otherwise, a local PC shop may let you install XP using a CD of theirs and using your Product Key.

I picked up a computer at a yard sale, and the operating system isn't good. I don't have another one, and I can't afford to buy one it's Windows 7, can anyone help? And tell me what I can do.


If you're looking for a operating system to run and it's an older computer i'd recommend using a freeware like ubuntu. It's a distro of Linux but easy to pick up and web browse etc. if you burn the disc you can also try it free without installing prior to fully commiting.

Windows crashed total so installed new windows vista pro now my dvd say its only cd and will not write dvd or and tells me no disk in drive when i insert blank dvd


It sounds like you need to upgrade the DVD-ROM drivers on your operating system. You'll need to go to the manufacturer's website to get the drivers for Vista.
1) Determine the manufacturer of your DVD-ROM drive. If you bought the drive separately from the computer, you need to go to the website of the company that made the drive (such as Samsung, Toshiba, etc.). If you bought it as part of a desktop or laptop, go to the website of the company that built the computer (HP, Dell, Lenovo, etc.).
2) Look for a link titled "Support" or possibly "Downloads" in the menu at the top of the webpage.
3) How you find the specific driver for your device will vary depending on which website you are on. Normally you have to enter in the model number of either your computer or DVD-ROM drive and it will show you what drivers are available.
4) Download the driver for Windows Vista (make sure you get the 32-bit version or 64-bit version, depending on your version of Vista)
5) Install the driver, typically by double-clicking the downloaded file and then following any on-screen directions. You'll then most likely have to reboot as well.
Everything should work after this. If you need specific help in finding the driver file to download, you'll need to provide me with the brand and model of your computer or DVD-ROM drive.
Hope that gets you up and running!

My ms office got deleted wen my laptop got crashed can i download ms office 4 free as of now i don hav de ms cd now..


Did the MS Office (full version) come pre-installed on your computer when you purchased the computer ?
If yes, then you had paid for it, when you paid for the computer, so contact the manufacturer of your computer for it's product key, after which download the trial version of it and use your product key to get it activated.
If did was not pre-installed on your computer and you had it installed after you bought the computer, using it's disc and you have lost the disc (and product key), then the only option is to buy it again, either a disc version or a downloadable version.
