Ok guys... I have a problem...

I had installed vista on my gaming PC and it kept crashing when I would try to run several of my games...

Since then (several months ago) I have not re-installed XP...

NOW i can NOT find my product key which I purchased seperate from my PC...

I am NOT asking for key codes... what I am looking for:

How do I go about getting a valid key code?

Or on the flip side... if someone no longer uses their XP I would be willing to trade old games for a legal copy of XP with Key...

Mike A!

belarc advisor should dig out a product key for you.

Correct me if I am wrong, but isnt that one of those apps that digs it out if you have the OS installed on that machine?

If so, that won't work as I formatted the harddrive, and installed vista, and I never re-installed XP...

If the software isn't installed Belcarc won't do it. Is it possible to go to the vendor you got it from and try to get a key? Other than that, not sure what you could do.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
