This might seem easy to some of you, but please help....
I have a used laptop pc several years old, and I had xp on it, but it crashed!!! It powers up, but I can't even get to the desktop! I want it to work again, I don't care if I lose everything on it.
Okay, here are my questions.....
I don't have the system recovery discs, so how do I get my laptop to work again? Can I buy the XP operating system software and just reload it again?
If so, do I have to get the same xp version that was on it(I forgot what version that was on it) or can I get any xp version?
If so, do I have to get the Full version or will the upgrade work?
What if I decide to just try to put Vista on it instead... will it work?
If so, do I buy the Full version of vista or upgrade?
