    Hello,
    I have a compaq desktop that has been acting up for a while, I want to install a fresh copy of Windows XP home edition, on the side of the desktop there is the key for the home edition, but I cant find the cd to install it. Is there anywhere that I can download a fresh copy of Win Xp and install it using my win XP key?

    Reinstall should be a last resort you could try posting a HijackThis log for review to locate the issue. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/help/install-reinstall-uninstall If you feel bound to reinstall make sure to backup any files that you wish to save. Also be sure to download to cd all drivers / firmware / software.. for not only your pc but also for routers and modems... http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/support.html Also I hope this helps you ... http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/...0197/en_us/c00810334/loc:1&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us

    When I lost my cd, I went to a computer technician and bought a cd from them for $25. You might want to do the same thing.
