Computer down!
    #2210070 - 12/30/03 04:06 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

I have myself a little bit of a problem ova here.
My computer is broken, and has been for about 10 months. not only did I lose the power cord in a move, it was already broken before that!!
Anyways, a few computer proficient individuals informed me that I would need to reload xp to fix it. My comp is a hp pavilion laptop.
But how exactly would one reload this system

I heard that most computers come with a refresh disk, but I bought mine at one hell of a discount since it was a floor model, so I didn't get the box or disk, or the upc code which would have given me 250 more bucks back in rebates.

So exactly what needs to be done here and how might I best go about it with little financial resources?

Would any copy of XP work, and what is the best way to get one?

Throw it away. If it has been broken for 10 mo. and your just getting around to fixing it, it is obvious tha you don't realy need it anyway, :smile:

How bad is it. Are you unable to boot at all, even into safe mode? Have you checked the bios and reset to the fail-safe default?

While there may be laptops that just take a "cord", I've never seen one. I've yet to see one that didn't take a power supply, so don'i go plugging in just any cord.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers
