  • Did your Dell come with XP Home or Pro?

     

    If you're using XP Pro and your Dell came with XP Pro, then you can probably change product keys easily at www.microsoft.com/genuine/selfhelp/comparekeys.aspx

     

    if you're using XP Pro and your Dell came with XP Home, have you taken your computer into a repair shop or had any work done on the PC lately? Chances are you are a victim of piracy and need to format your computer back to Dell factory settings.
