justin lee,
Unfortunately, that will not work.You will need to purchase a product key number from Microsoft. You can also try searching the internet and purchase a license copy of Windows with a product key code.

Desk top background loads properly but my icons are very slow to load, or don't load at all


This will work if the computer hesitates while windows "refreshes" all of the Desktop Icons. This is because the ShellIconCache file has reached it's limit of 500 entries. To stop this, run Regedit and open the key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer and create a new string value. Name it MaxCachedIcons and then set the value to 2000

Bios setting problem


This happens because Windows is corrupted.

You need to start the computer with a windows install disk, or a factory recovery disk inside to reinstall the system.

Get a windows install disk and reinstall the system.

Common practice when vendors sell thousands of machines. They clone the systems. This is legal, and common practice. Take your system back to them for help.
