but you would need the full version unless you had an older version of windows to install and upgrade that to XP. If you want to do that and reflect the new xp version in the cost and can get your money back then go for it.
My girlfriend has a Dell Inspirion 8000 laptop that she doesn't use because it is horribly bogged down and slow. She got an iBook a year or so ago so the Dell has been gathering dust. I offered to look at it and fix it so she can sell it to a friend. I was planning on just cleaning everything up. Getting rid of unused programs, running disc cleanup and defrag, and installing Adaware to get rid of any bugs.
What I REALLY wanted to do was just do a reinstall of Windows XP, BUT she doesn't know where her install disc is. Is it possible to reinstall Windows and just start from scratch if I don't have any of the discs that came with the computer? I would probably need the discs to reinstall the drivers also, right?
