Well that would be a question as to whether you got the disc as a retail purchase or bundled with your PC. If you got it as a retail purchase(Bought seperately at a store) then Yes you should contact Microsoft and after verifying your liscense they should be able to send you a new disc( They'll probably want to charge you a fee for the cost of the disc and shipping. but thats small in comparison to the cost of buying the OS all over again.

If you got it bundled with your PC you need to contact the Manufacturer of your PC to find out their media replacement policy.

Hope this helps you

Hi.

You need to reinstall the system using the licence number on the sticker usually placed at the bottom side of the laptop.

Microsoft does not distribute replacement disk to reinstall OEM licenced Windows, so that you will need to find a disk.

If you want to purchase a new licence, you can get one from the Dell store.

A common way to proceed is downloading a disk with the operative system corresponding to the version on the sticker (eg. Windows XP Home), and reinstalling the system.

This practice is not endorsed by Microsoft, but it is not illegal, providing that you use a genuine licence number valid for installation on this computer.

THis is the operation performed also at local computer shops to reinstal OEM operative system.

The operation is done for a small fee at computer shops. A good option would also be having the job done at a local shop.

If you want to DIY, you will need a Windows install disk of the same version printed on the licence sticker.

A way to get the disk is by downloading the disk. Please be aware that most persons making the download available are breaking the law by also providing invalid licence numbers or programs to disable Windows Validation procedure. If you decide to download the disk, also be aware that software distributed in this way may contain viruses.
In no case use a licence that does not belong to your computer genuine license, or does not come from a genuine Microsoft system COA sticker that can be installed on your computer.

To download the disk you will need at least three programs:

1) a p2p downloader: µTorrent

2) a p2p search utility: Convivea - Bit Che

2) a CD/DVD burning utility: Free CD/DVD burning

Install the downloader, then the search utility. Search a Windows disk for your same version. Choose one that does not offer crack or validation cheating. Download may take over one day to complete.
When download is complete burn a CD by installing CD burning software.

Start the C610 with the Windows disk inside and reinstall Windows.

After installing the operative system you will need to download and install all the software drivers listed here.

The operation is quite complicate, and system reinstall is suggested to an advanced computer user.

If you have not done anything similar before, better taking the laptop to a shop, or contacting Dell to arrange a repair. This will also exclude the risks related to download of not verified ( and often non-legal) software using P2P.

Repair cost at t shop starts at about $50.

Regards.

Lost xp home edition os disks...


You can request a copy from microsoft but they will charge you. Do you have a recovery CD came with your PC? if not the best way is to ask your friends for the CD but use your own product key, it should be on the label on the computer. Good Luck :)

Can I install windows xp home edition to another computer


No.
OEM CDs are locked to the computer.
If you do install XP, it will ask for activation and you cannot activate it because an OEM licence is only for the computer it was sold with.

Microsoft office


If your version of Microsoft Office 2003 came from a legitimate CD, then re-run the CD. If it is not taking your product registration key, then call Microsoft and have them override the blockage. I had to do the same when I wiped my hard drive clean - I found their tech support in this area to be most helpful.
