You will find the serial number on the base of the Laptop or on the rear of the PC - there is usualy a hologram label with the unit / serial number and software license number.

I need to find the driver for a Dell Monitor E172FPt. I am running Windows XP on my computer

first i would ask why running XP? anyway, XP is no longer supported but you may find the drivers by going to the Dell website, find download support link page, put in the model/serial number? of the monitor when it asks you to identify it(or a tag #), it will search and then ask for the OS you are using, etc. Drivers will be displayed, choose carefully.

I lost my product key is there anything i can do

About only thing you can legally do is contact Dell if you have registered your computer with them and ask for it. They will ask you some information and if it matches they might be able to give you the one you registered. If you haven't then nothing you can really do. Except an illegal method would be ask you friends or family if they have "windows home edition" installed on their computer and if they know the key. As long as its "windows home edition" it should work. Again the 2nd part is against copy-write laws.

Hi there.
you have a Win32 virus active on your computer, there is nothing you can do about this apart from recovering the system with a cd or the recovery partition.

Dell poweredge 1600 sc XP install

I believe you would need to install the Serial ATA card driver before installing windows. When you first start Xp it asks if you have any ATA drivers that need to be installed first.    My guess,since it is used, that you have not the driver for that card?    Give us the make and model of that card and we can help look for the driver,or take it out all together and use an IDE hard drive.

How can I change operating systems

Buy the XP UPGRADE. It is around $90 and you can find it just about anywhere thjat sells software. You need at least 512 of memory for it to run smoothly. Once you install the upgrade ME will be gone.
