    Thanks for the quick reply. Yep, got the CD. As for the Microsoft instructions- had already tried them all. Problem is whatever method I attempt;when I click "Activate Windows" all I get is a blue screen; No message whatsoever. Any further advice would be welcomed
    David.

    do you have a lot of data stored already? if not try first try running sfc /scannow (start > run) you need to put the windows cd... if it won't work try repairing your OS.
