Lost xp cd

by wpoldake / September 23, 2008 7:55 AM PDT

I have a purchased copy of XP that I have lost the disc from (I believe the girlfriends' grandson may have helped here). I still have the sleeve, COA etc. Is there a way to get a replacement disc without spending for new copy?

OS version

If this was a "retail version" you can plead your woe to MS, call them or inquire via online at their support website. If an "OEM version", plead with the vendor if it came with the system. Since, you didn't state what XP version you had. In most cases though, you're pretty much SOL. But, it doesn't hurt to ask, many times the OEM version can be replaced and/or for small cost, but since XP is outgoing OS, it maybe harder.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
