Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 600M Notebook ?

System crashed , no restore partition, origionall had xpsp1, have Dell reinstall Cd with xp sp2....will it have to be re activated?

\015 Have a Dell 600m laptop, origionally cane with xp sp1, system restore partition has been deleted, will a Dell reinstallation CD (xp sp2 work ) system has crashed.\015

Answers :

Yes, first try re installing the Xp sp1. After installation, copy your files in a flash drive or burn it in a CD/DVD. When that's done, re install your O.S. using your Xp sp2. I recommend formatting your hard drive so it will be a fresh install. After installation, re copy your files to the hard drive then re activate your Xp sp2 online.
Hope this works.
Yes, but it will erase any personal data you have. Let me know if there is data to save and I will give more suggestions.
