I was to receive a copy of 8.1 for a clean install of 8.1 pro, and was given the codes. However the disc has been lost in the post and the supplier is loathe to resend. Can I get a clean install from

I have built yet another computer for us at home to replace the old Vista machine that I built some 6 years ago. The new machine is 8.1 mobo only. A supplier gave me the offer of a 8.1 as a thank you as they are a big company with many machines as part of their group units, sent the disk and numbers each under separate cover but the discs have got lost in the post. Is there anywhere I can d/l 8.1 and put my numbers in. NOTE MS only have upgrade see so do NOT quote that.

SOURCE: my p-2 wont read anything but one disk

Your PS2 is equipped with a cooling fan which keep it nice and cool, the only problem is that it sucks up dust in the process.

Take your PS-2 apart, you will see the "eye" or laser, this is something you NEVER touch!!!!

Do not use a air compressor, it will spray moister and it has to high of a PSI!!

Get a can of compressed air and hold it upright (do not tilt the can of air or shake it or it will spray nitrogen, freezing your PS-2) and spray the PS-2 with the air using 2 second burst, moving the PS ,not the air. Be sure to spray the "eye" and the housing.

Reassemble the PS-2 and it should work fine.

If not, you need to replace the laser.

My Egypt copy does not install in my Windows xp sp3

If your code is not working then there is only a few things that will cause this problem.

1) the code is invalid or pirated
2) the code is not compatible with the version you are installing
3) the version you are installing is not to correct language encoded disc
4) you are typing the code in incorrectly, this usually happens with B and 8
5) the edition is incorrect (home and not pro)
6) The disc type is incorrect. Retail, upgrade and OEM codes do not work interchangably. OEM only works with OEM, Retial with retail cd, etc. This changed in Vista and Win7 but still remained with XP

Installing windows xp into acer aspire m1640 need help the computer is falling to boot intead is showing a blue screen

The blue screen represents your Windows XP hasn't failed to install but has crashed and given you an error. The only way to fix this is to restore it to the original Windows and than try again. This mostly happends with boot leg copies of Windows XP and speaking from experience your better off buying the disc from the store so if this ever happends again your covered. If you DID buy the disc, then talk to your supplier and they should give you a new copy or install it for you.

Hope this helps ^^. Please don't forget to rate, Thanks
