I have a Goodmans laptop which crashed, Ive reinstalled Windows XP home but Microsoft will not accept my Product code, they tell me I must contact Goodmans, Could you please help me with this. Thanks


The Windows product installation code is on the Windows label on the bottom of your laptop. If the label is missing then you need to contact Goodmans to get this information, you will need your receipt as proof of purchase.
Otherwise you will need to purchase a new copy of Windows XP or Windows Vista or the latest version Windows 7.

Check your Windows label that has the product installation code printed on it. On the label it will also have the XP version number it will be X08, or X10 or X11 etc.
You can use any Windows XP installation CD PROVIDED the CD Part No. matches the X08 or X10 or X10 version that is printed on your product label.
If you install XP using the wrong version CD then the installation process will not accept your product installation code and Windows will not install.

I have recently purchsed a toshiba a500 03p with vista home premium, how do i roll back to xp? I have xp rollback discs


In order to switch from Vista to XP, you will need to basically erase Vista and install XP.

I'm not exactly sure what you mean when you say you have XP rollback discs but, you will need an actual Windows XP installation disc and product key.

First make sure the BIOS in your pc is configured so that the first boot device is your cd /dvd drive.

Insert the XP cd in the cd /dvd drive and reboot the pc. Your pc should then boot from the cd and enter the text based portion of the XP setup program.

Press the F8 key to accept the licensing agreement and then wait for the setup program to load the files it will need to continue the installation of XP.

Once the necessary files are loaded the setup program will check for an existing installation of Windows and will identify the partition where Vista is installed and ask where you want to install XP.

This is where you want to pay close attention to the information provided on the screen. What you want to do is to delete the partition where Vista is installed and then create a new partition. This will remove Vista from your pc.

After the new partition has been created, you can then install XP onto it. The setup program will copy the files needed for XP to operate and will reboot your pc so it can enter the graphical portion of the setup program.

The graphical portion of the setup program is where you'll enter the product key and then the installation will continue installing the necessary files until it get finished.

Once completed, Vista will be gone and XP will be your operating system.
