No,,if you do not have the original windows operating system CD
you cannot just download them, if your Laptop had an origional CD at one time,,and the software (WindowsXP) on the Laptop was registered with Microsoft, then you can contact support at Microsoft and request a replacement CD.
In most cases they will just send you a new copy.

Where to get virus protection to burn onto a cd

You can download the free Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) program from the internet, and then burn the program onto the CD. This will allow you to carry it to another computer to install it, so long as that computer has a cd or dvd drive to be able to read the disc.

I also like to use Dr. Web Cureit as a secondary virus removal program. Both of these are free for personal use.

You can download them here:

Microsoft Security Essentials (be sure to choose the correct version - do you have a 64-bit computer? If you don't know, then right click on the My Computer icon on your desktop or on your programs list, and select properties from the list of choices that opens up. This should show you if the computer is 32-bit x86 or 64-bit.)

Windows won't let me into my account says tried to many times tried resetting it did't work help

Hey there, You can remove your windows password by using Hiren's Boot CD, which you can download online. Unfortunately I can't give too much information on this right now since I don't have the CD actually anywhere near me but basically you just burn the software to a CD, restart your computer, boot from CD and go to the appropriate categories and follow the instructions.
You can download Hiren's boot CD: link and here's a guide on how to do it: link

Lost password can;t get in


Improve the experience for everyone by voting!

I'm assuming that you don't need a BIOS password. If so, please read no farther because this will not help you.

Unfortunately, I would either have to be in the chat mode or on the telephone with you to fully analyze your problem and provide a coherent answer. But don't despair because there is a little FREE program that may solve your problem.

Even if you are only moderately computer literate, you will find tat the following will solve your problem at no cost to you:

The freeware Ophcrack Windows password cracker is the best free Windows password recovery tool available. Ophcrack is fast and easy enough for a first time password cracker with basic Windows skills.

Here is a current review and download instructions for OPH Crack. Just follow the link at the end of the review:

How To Use Ophcrack LiveCD

• "Below is a summarized how-to for Ophcrack. However, I highly recommend my step by step guide with screenshots if you're not familiar with Windows password recovery software and need a more detailed walkthrough.
• "To get started, visit the Ophcrack site by clicking on the link at the end of the summary:
• "Once you're there, click on the Download ophcrack LiveCD button. On the next page, click on either the XP or Vista link to download the correct ISO image file for your operating system. Choose the Vista version for Windows 7 as well. This file may take some time to download.
• "An ISO file contains everything that should go on a CD or DVD in a single file. The Ophcrack LiveCD ISO file contains SliTaz (a Linux distribution), the Ophcrack software, and other files needed to recover passwords. Don't worry about the details - the Ophcrack LiveCD is fully automatic - no Linux experience required.
• "Important: Some antivirus programs unnecessarily identify one or both of two files included in Ophcrack as a Trojan or other kind of malware - samdump.dll and pwservice.exe. Both of these files are part of an open source program called pwdump which is included with Ophcrack and is necessary for it to work. The pwdump program is classified more or less as "evil" since it can be used to extract passwords... which of course is exactly what you're trying to do.
• "So don't worry about your antivirus program's flagging of these files (as long as it's just these files). Ignore it and continue on with the process:
• "After downloading, burn the Ophcrack ISO image to a CD. Burning an ISO file is a [sic] different than burning a normal file. Check out How to Burn an ISO Image File to a CD or DVD for more on that topic.
• "After burning, boot to the CD by rebooting your PC with the disc in the drive. Linux will load, Ophcrack will start, and the password recovery will begin.
• "Ophcrack will locate the users on your Windows system and begin cracking their passwords. The process is automatic - you don't usually need to type or click anything. When the passwords are displayed on screen, write them down.
• "Remove the CD, reset your computer and then log on to Windows with your newly recovered password!
• "Once you're back in to Windows, change your password to something you'll remember this time and then create a password reset disk to avoid ever having to do this again."

Click on the following link for the download site: OPH Crack Download

All the best,

My computer crashed so I installed windows xp. The USB ports don't work and neither does the DVD drive

It sounds like you have not installed the chipset driver. Find your cd that came with the pc and install the chipset driver or go on line and download the latest driver.

I have a new comptuer. We have a Samsung Digimax 420 camera We don't have the CD to install the program Is there a free download or another way to get the program installed on our new computer

You don't need any special software. The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as iPhoto on Mac or Windows Photo Gallery on Windows.

What to do,computer is full of viruses wont let me in anywhere,system locked up,

In cases like this, you have no alternative but to format the hard disk and install Windows again.
You need your Windows installation CD and product installation code. After installing Windows and the Service packs, plus the computer's device drivers, then activate Windows, and install your programs.

Cd driver don t work

This is the best way to download the drivers of all your devices which are connected to the system for free.

But you have to be patient.

First, i want you to download a ree program called "Orbit download manager" from the link below,

And then you can download a program called "Driver genius" from link

it is a trial program for 15 days

dont worry we only need it for 5 minutes

Install & run the program & in the windows click on the update the drivers

Itwill check & it will give the window with the drives that needs tobe updated & it will not update a it is a trial one.

So youjust right click on the driver name, you will get a message called'copy url address 1' copy that & open the orbit downloader &click on the create new download & paste the link the drivers willbe downloaded for free.

Some sites give these drivers only forthe money & we cannot be able to find them from the free sites, soi think this would be a nice trick.


go to and download the enet cam driver.otherwise buy the driver and install it.

Lost CD Rom for my Axim x30. Anywhere I can download it?

You need ActiveSync from Microsoft. Unless you're using Vista which uses Windows Mobile Device Center. Connecting to the Axim to a Vista machine should automatically download the Windows Mobile Device Center software.

ActiveSync for XP and older systems can be downloaded here:

You'll proabbly still want to update your Axim's firmware and drivers if possible.

Good luck!
