It would depend on what make you computer is. I have a friend that owns a Dell, and they were able to verify through her registration information that she was the original owner, and they sent her the disks for the price of shipping.

Have you contacted the manufacturer of you computer to see what they can do? You paid for that operating system when you bought the computer.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Hi,

How much would it be? Does anyone know?

Its around a few hundred canadian dollars.($200-500)
Not exactly sure.

Have you contacted the manufacturer of you computer to see what they can do? You paid for that operating system when you bought the computer.

My computer had a promblem a while ago, and I reinstalled XP and fixed the promblem. However I had to get an XP cd as well because when I bought the computer they didn't give me an XP cd. My friend however got an XP cd from the company he bought his computer...

Regards,
Extremeboy
