    Operating system XP?

    Trying to locate a cheap full version of windows xp but all the student sites seem to be windows 7 upgrades.

    The pc used to have windows xp on but no recovery disk with it.
    Not fully sure what I am looking for !!!

    If you still have the COA sticker on the computer all you need to get your hands on is the specific CD-ROM - which version of Windows XP is it?

    Is it Home or Professional Edition? Is it SP1, SP2 or SP3 integrated? If you can confirm those details then hopefully somebody can provide you with a copy of the CD-ROM to allow you to do a reinstall from scratch - does your place of work have an IT department you can speak too, to see if they can provide you a copy of the CD-ROM?
