Ok so I bought a dell pc this week. It came with Windows XP. My old computer has windows xp on it, but I wanted to reinstall it to take out some of the bugs in it. So can I use the cd that came with the Dell, on my old pc, which isn't a dell. or is this a no no? and do I need to just go buy another at a computer store.

Thanks for any help in advance.

nope, it might not work because the dell cds install drivers and lots of other things that are only made for a dell pc

also, you cant have 2 computers using the same serial number

If you old PC didn't come with recovery disk(s) contact the computer manufacturer and buy a set of recovery disks for that machine and reinstall Windows.
