I baught a laptop from PCWorld few years ago, now I receintly had alot of software errors/problems with allmost everything, so I was told a reinstall of windows will fix 99% of it, so I uninstalled XP using my friends XP Home CD. I tryed to use my Product Key which is on a sticker under my laptop. No Joy!
I phoned up PCWorld and they told me I shouldave backed up my harddrive when I baught this laptop... therfore its all my fault(even though they didnt tell me that at the time?!). anyway.. Its my fault, If i could go back I would.
I have a legit product key & *HAD* a legit copy of windows... but I dont know how to get it back
I am just wondering how I get round this?
(I have contacted Microsoft, but because its the weekend, Im unlikely to hear a reply untill monday at the earliest & Thought someone might be able to come up with a sugestion on here)
