First of all, go to http://utorrent.com/ and press Free download. Install the program/software. After you have done that, download the torrent from http://thepiratebay.org/torrent/3580548/Windows_XP_Media_Center_Edition_2005_OEM

Save the file to your desktop. Right-click the torrentfile, then press properties, press change next to opens with, locate uTorrent (C:Program FilesuTorrent by default - it's in the uTorrent folder) press OK, check the "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file" box, click Apply. Then double-click the torrentfile on your desktop, press OK on the box that pops up.You can see a green square in the taskbar (lower right corner), double-click it. There you will see a "Completed" tab on the left side. When the torrent is downloaded, right-click on it and press "Open containing folder". And there you have it.. Download a freeware burning software, and burn the file to a DVD. Remember to use 4x or slower write speed.

Hope this helps.

Download this torrent http://thepiratebay.org/torrent/3580548/Windows_XP_Media_Center_Edition_2005_OEM, burn it to a DVD on 4x or slower speed, and just use your licence code.

Your screen probably is dark and has the Windows Genuine Advantage message. You may need to reinstall a genuine windows software to resolve this, but in the mean time you can remove windows genuine advantage message by installing RemoveWGA 1.2. Go to this site http://www.softpedia.com/get/Tweak/Uninstallers/RemoveWGA.shtml
to download it. Install it and you will have your computer running well again.

I have no backup or restore systems. I need to restore to factory settings. Please help.


There are only two ways to restore to factory settings.

1. use existing disks or purchase the original Aspire restore disks.

2. buy a new copy of Windows XP and then download any missing drivers from the Acer website.

with Item 1, if you have the original sticker under the computer showing the License Product ID code, then the replacement disks from Acer will be inexpensive. If you need a new licence as well, then the price goes up a lot!

You may be victim of counterfeiting the genuine microsoft


Hi.

This happens when the serial number used on installation is not recognised as valid, or when the serial had been used on more than one computer.

If you have installed the system with serial number different from the one printed on licence sticker, then reinstall the system using a valid licence number.

If you purchased the computer with system preinstalled , and you are not sure if system was installed with valid licence, then contact Microsoft.

You can also temporary get rid of the problem doing a system restore to a date before you got Genuine Microsoft Validation message.

Regards.

Hi.

If she did not format the hard disk, then the Windows XP startup option will be present in boot option. When computer startup you will get a choice like this:

1 Microsoft Windows Vista Home Edition.
2 Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP2

In that case you can restore XP, starting on XP and editing the file winboot.ini, that is an hidden system file located on C:/ drive.

See:How to edit the Boot.ini file in Windows XP.

If instead Windows XP does not start, or if you do not get the boot option, that means that Windows XP system file had been deleted.

In that case the only way to get back Windows XP is reinstalling the system from scrap, using a Windows XP install disk, and the number listed on the licence sticker.

Regards.

MY WIDOWS XP WONT BOOT IN ANY MOOD


Hey,

you will need a copy of the windows installation cd or the recovery media that comes with the computer.

Ones you have that you have to reinstall windows or restore from the recovery media to get your computer working normally again.

You can also take the computer to a local professional who can install it for you if you don't have the disc.


Let me know if you need anything else.


Thanks,
Ekse

I need to get a recovery disk for my acer laptop


If it is a newer one you may have onboard if not and you have a licence sticker still ring acer and give them the licence number they will send you a recovery disc/s not sure if they charge for it or not, or if you have a licence sticker you can just go buy xp or whatever you have and use that you should get a new licence for the program to. Or you could get a freind to burn a copy of their recovery disc/s if same as your laptop only thing is you could not use it online.(as is concidered a pirated copy for obvious reasons) Best bet would be to buy new copy of program and do a system restore

Installation


If you have a genuine version of Windows with a licence key, then download and install XP Service Pack 2 from the Microsoft website. You can also request a CD copy.

If you do not have a genuine copy with a licence key, then you will not be able to re-activate Windows XP once Sevice Pack 2 has installed.
