Well... it's not exactly the most legal way of doing things, but in your case there doesn't seem to be one. So: on your PC there should be an adhesive with Windows XP's original product key. It's the same bulk XP OEM version, I don't expect Aries to have had a specific OEM version such as Dell, Acer or HP. So if you can get your hands on any XP OEM disk, that will be good and your PK will be accepted. Your license is bound to the adhesive and the PC system hardware, not the physical CD.

Legal problems might arise in those countries where the license is bound to the hardware "assembly" (France I think, but not sure). In such cases the installation of course works, but you're in violation of the license even if you have the proof of purchase and receipts (fiscal problem, not technical).

System keeps freezing NO TASK MANGER OR POINTER OR KEYBOARD, also event viewer shows no sign


It could be that your Hard Drive is almost gone, or, that the system file is corrupt (but you would get a system error with this, pls advise if you do). In the case that your HDD is dying, I would recommend that you try and backup all your data asap to an external USB Hard Drive.

If you do happen to have another working computer around you can try this, but first you need the following:
1 external USB Hard Drive case that matches your PC Hard Drive fitting, ie. IDE or SATA.
2. A Windows XP cd with serial key.

If you do, then carefully disconnect all power to the problem PC, and carefully remove the Hard Drive.

Open your external USB drive case, and carefully remove the HDD, be careful not to drop any of the HDD - treat it with care.
Now insert the problem HDD into the fitting/connection that is either IDE or SATA, matching your case's fitting.
Close the case, dont have to insert the screws at this point, and hook it up to your spare working pc.
It should pick up on the screen as an external USB drive.
First, scan it for any viruses and clean it if any picks up.
Now locate all your data from Documents and Settings/Username/Desktop and My Documents and Favourites too.
Copy these files to your spare PC's Desktop with a New folder created and labeled.
After you transfered all your data, then disconnect from working PC, remove case of external usb drive, remove the HDD of the problem PC and insert it back into the PC body.

Insert the WinXP cd into the CD ROM drive and wait for it to boot from CD, then attempt a repair. Else, reinstall XP and follow the instructions on the screen - they're user friendly, and dont be scared:)

Network Boot Windows XP?


Put the HDD in any other computer , creat a folder called XPbackup and copy the XP cd to the folder, Start the XP install from the other computer  , when the install stops for CD key , turn of the computer and remove the HDD and put the HDD on the laptop and turn it on , Mostly the installation should start from where it stoped. If the Xp install askes for the source files , browse to the folder created and point to the files. Most of the time XP will install a generic HAL so no need to worry.
