Missing Windows XP Product Key-Need to Reinstall/Repair XP


I'm assuming you have quite a lot of computer savvy??? You'll need to access that drive and get the original key off it. Try connecting the drive to another pc and see if you can get to the Windows folder. Once there, use Jellybean Keyfinder to navigate to the Windows folder in that drive and take note of the OS key. From there you can reformat and use the existing key.

I had to reinstall windows xp. Now I cannot connect to the internet.


Make sure the driver of the Ethernet Card on your computer is installed. You check it under Device Manager

Right-click My Computer > Properties > Hardware Tab > Device Manager > Network Adapters (click the +). If you see Other Devices with yellow exclamations like Ethernet Controller, that's it. You need to run the Motherboard CD to automatically install the ethernet driver.

No windows xp


Hi Dean,

I can Understand your situation.when this happens it means your system restore files have become damaged. This could be because you don't defragment your computer regularly, you have a virus or malware or your hard drive has just aged a little.

You can either repair or reinstall windows. Windows System Restore isn't actually that good in XP as the problem is still there, just the system restore masks it.

To reinstall please visit www.lopezwebz.com for a guide.

You may want to "repair" windows...

Basically it pretends to reinstall Windows by replacing all the broken Windows files... it will NOT erase your drivers, software thats installed or any documents so is 100% safe.

You can find a guide on how to do that at http://www.windowsxphome.windowsreinstall.com/installxpcdrepair/indexfullpage.ht...

Can't find Network Adapters


Are there any "!" marks under device manager?

There's a possibility you installed the network adapter driver, but not the chipset driver.
