yeah, just find an XP CD and reformat. it doesnt matter where you get it, if you got your computer from a major company, the CD key should be on a sticker somewhere on the case. plus, you shouldnt even really need to CD key unless you register with microsoft.

itll help a little, but the best way to increase the performance is to get a new processor (but you gotta have the $$)

Microsft ftl.

Either reformat or buy one of those cheap dells, your comp is prettymuch useless for most stuff right now.

If all you do is web browse and stuff, may I suggest Ubuntu Linux. Faster than windows. No spyware or viruses, and its freeeee. Plus its easy to install and run.

yes Microsoft ftl.... they are such jerks for adding a part in the code that stops you from stealing 80 dollars plus all in one download. oh and ftl too if you'd suggest that being the most used OS as deserving a loss. the whole hating microsoft thing is retarded. you see problems in microsoft's products? fix them. and sell the fix. jesus people learn economics and quit whining.

i cant buy a dell cuz my dad worked for hp for 15 years and is a stone cold suporter. and i dont get my new computer until college (im a junior).

not ALL i do is webbrowse. i use dreamweaver, ps cs2, flash 8, and lots of modeling but recently i havent been able to... nor have i had any ideas since ive been sketching up stuff for halloween preperations (yes next year)

i need to fix THIS, and i cant find ram since the chips i have are some wierd number of pins. i will be getting a new hard drive soon i think.

Yeah my laptop does the same thing, it takes about 20 min to start up and 30 minutes just to get the internet explorer started and you cant run any programs without it taking like 2 hours to start.

Thats the exact problem I had with mine. Your hard drive is probably damaged. I got mine replaced and the computer is back up to speed.

are you sure its non-registered? i know the site says that it checks for authenticity when you try dl'ing WMP10 and stuff but it still works everytime my friend or i tried.

because it's the professional version, you can use it on as many computers as you want, as long as its for education, and teaching yourself to build pcs is pretty educational IMO
