Question about Computers & Internet

Deleting all the extra software that came preloaded in my pc.

I bought an acer desktop from The Source preloaded with Vista and a whole bunch of other stuff that i don't want. My hard disk already had 2 partitions. I did not recieve a Windows Vista installation cd. All I want is to install Vista by itself and I will install all of the other necessary software.

Is it possible to somehow burn an installation cd? If so can you direct me where to go to find the necessary instructions. If not, Is it possible to upgrade from Vista Basic to the next level for a fraction of the full purchace price. ( and get an installation disk for that upgraded version?)

I'm not sure if it's Vista or my motherboard, but there seems to be a limit on how much ram can be utilized. I have 5 gigs in 3 slots, (2+2+1) but my system says I only have three thousand three hundred and something mb of ram.What's the deal?

You have to download XP drivers from the manufacturer's website. This normally happens because your harware was designed for the new OS(Vista).

Just go to hp.com and search for the model of your Laptop.

Product Key not valid


I think this is a "Branded code".
In other word is a key code valid only for OS retailed by Acer.
If you use another media CD (i.e. OEM CD) the key is not valid.
You can only use whith a Acer restore CD.
