    I just install new hard drive an just cloned first drive for the aforementioned problems.

    NOW this is funny I can put in reinstall disk, to hunt for things not installed no problem I can hit install an it works to the key product number, I just moved and remmber last 3 set of numbers etc. but my book that has it written down in in a bob or boxes market pc goodies, I have them all way back to 3.1 win. but that does me know good I am disabled so I NEED those numbers, so I do not  have to buy win 7 or mce if it is on one disk or so

    PROBLEM HOW DO I RETEIVE THOSE NUMBERS, DELL DID IT ONCE AWHILE BACK ? I DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY THEY DO NOT PUT NUMBERS ON CIRCLE INSIDE OF CD/ CAN ANYONE HELP ME GET A NICE CLEAN NEW INSTALL.

    TY ALL IN ADVANCE

    If you have a Dell Dimension 5150 running XP MCE, use the product key that is printed on the Certificate of Authenticity sticker that is affixed to the top surface of the computer' case.
