Question about Computers & Internet
If your Aspire laptop has a Microsoft sticker at the bottom with the Product Key, it is not necessary for you to re-purchase CD installer of the Operating System. You could try borrowing from friends their XP Pro CD installers or even an OEM and simply use that. When asked for the CD key, use what is printed in the aforementioned sticker.
As long as the motherboard/entire machine is not replaced, then this would be an acceptable alternative. Should you still wish to purchase an Windows XP Pro SP2 installer CD, it would roughly cost USD 60.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
