Well, I'm not to good with small talk so lets get right down to it.
I'm going to be ordering a new laptop next month, but all of the systems I've looked at only come with vista. Now one of the things I'm going to be using this new laptop is to play an mmorpg on it(not to mention that my current laptop is ancient). I've been playing this game on a console for the last few years and wanna try it with better graphics/framerate, but the problem is this game and vista aren't sopposed to play well together.
Now I have an oem disc for windows xp, but I used the product key on my current laptop when I upgraded it from 98(like I said, ancient). I'm going to be erasing this current laptop and giving it away to be refurbished, will I be able to re-use my oem disc to downgrade my new laptop and use the product key to activate it or am I gonna have to feed ms more of my money for a new oem disc(or is there away to get just a product activation key cheap)?
Sorry if this is the wrong place for this kind of questiong and thank you for any answers.
