Dell OS CDs are OEM versions which mean you can not install them on any other systems. Sorry for the bad news.

Try activating using the telephone. Open the Windows Activation and click "show me other ways to activate". Click use the automated phone system and click the location nearest you from the dropdown. Call the number and follow the prompts.

Can't access laptop computer in safe mode, keyboard freeze up


Try booting your system from a LIVE cd like linux, a verson of Hiren's tools, or the UBCD (ultimate boot disc for windows). If your keyboard still freezes with the alternate OS, you may have a hardware malfunction.

Error on product key


your windows is asking for Activation...u have to use telephone or internet to activate, if u don't activate it will be trial for 30days so use telephone give a code which displays on your screen...it will give u a code through which u can activate it. But remember u have to activate every time when u format it. Previous key will not work. Another process is to use crack and keygens but they r illegal. You can activate many times no limits if u have an original operating system.
All OEM packs of operating system will ask for activation.
full versions are costly but no need to activate. 
Don't use on more than one computer...every OS is made for only one computer.

Cannot activate legitimate xp on eee pc


Have you tried the "phone in activation" yet? Microsoft seems to think that there operating system is infallible therefore only allows a few automatic activations.

Victim of software counterfeiting


If you believe you have a legitimate Windows XP pro. Meaning you have the original disk, and Product Ket on a Windows sticker on your PC. or maybe a retail purchased copy out of a box, then its legitimate, however you just need to activate the software. If when trying to activate it, it says something like "unable to activate....", then you will need to use activate by telephone, in which you will have to selct your country and you'll have a phone number to cal the aactivations dept. follow the instructions, and when you get someone on the line they will get it activated for you. And that Non Genuine message will go away.

The os is to frustrating linux is not for me ..xp is what I want .need to get linux out then install xp.


The particular model of Asus is apparently pre-loaded with Xandros Linux operating system.

It appears that you are not familiar with Linux and hence the apprehension and feeling that a shift to XP would be easier.

Why not give Linux a try ? There are a good many websites out there which go through the basics of using a Linux PC. Try them out, by spending some time in learning - you will get far more satisfaction and become more productive in using your laptop.

Some websites which might be of assistance to you are listed below:-

How to reformat ASUS Eee PC 900 notebook?


I have the linux version, not sure if you have the windows version or if it really matters. If you are looking to "reformat", you can go with the other suggestions with the USB stick. However, if you are reformatting to get back to the default settings, power on the computer and immediately hold F9. This will bring you to a screen that gives you the option to "restore factory defaults". You will lose all your previous settings, but if you were reformatting anyway, that's probably not a big concern.

Hello please i would like to get from you a windows xp home sp 1a product keys


Dear princebaraka,

I believe that kind of question isn't allowed. We can not offer you/give you a legitimate Windows XP Home Edition Serial Key. The reason is simple, it's illegal. There are plenty of websites that store serial keys but the thing is, those are probably already blacklisted and do not allow you to update your computer. Which off course is a big security risk.

There are alternatives though to get Windows XP pretty cheap.
1. Buy a new PC with XP. Usually you'll get an OEM license.
2. If you are still a student, maybe your school has some interesting offers for it's students.
3. Use a serial key from an older PC. Install XP using the software disc you have and if it cannot activite because of the hardware being to different from the PC Windows was activated on you'll need to call Microsoft (phone number is on the Activation Utility)

That's all I can do for you.

Greetings,

DarkNeogen
