I need window vista home basic product key
If you purchased the laptop with vista on it, the key should be on the underneath of it's case. If you are upgrading, when you buy the product, it comes with a product key. If you are upgrading, why not try windows 7 which is quicker, more stable and less memory hungry.
Dell PP29L pwers on but screen remains black
If all the answers above do not work, it is possible that your video chip is failing. Laptop video chips are embedded in the motherboard. Over time, too much heat becomes an issue and begins to warp the chip and it begins to lift up slightly from the motherboard creating issues with blank screens when powered up. I've had the same problem with several laptops brought to me for repairs and 90% of the time it was the video chip. For this problem you may need to replace the motherboard with the same exact motherboard which you can find on ebay fairly cheap, and then if you don't feel too comfortable opening your laptop take it to a computer repair place and have it replaced.

A couple things can cause this to happen....
1. While you're typing, your hand or thumb might be hitting the mouse area near the keyboard which causes the mouse to move around.
2. You could have some heavy resource program running in the background which slows the system down.
3. You have an infrared mouse without a proper mouse pad so the infrared causes the light to bounce around causing issues.
4. A virus :(
