My daughter's computer will not boot at all. It's running XP Home Edition. I brought it home to try to help fix it. She said her anti virus program ran out and it had become disabled from viruses. She could open it in safe mode but when I tried, all I got was this message: This version of windows must be reactivated. To reactivate press OK or Cancel. Then it froze. I don't have a disk to boot it from. Now it powers up but the screen is blank. It's a new monitor, so it's not that. Is there a downloadable bootup CD for XP? It doesn't have a floppy drive. Been on this site and others for hours looking.

Hello carolinem,

Wow! What a mess you've got there. I'm going to move this topic to the Windows XP forum.

You can try some of the programs offered on Bootdisk.com or you can download UBCD which has many programs that will help you diagnose the system. These can be burned onto a CD and booted from on your daughters computer.

Thanks. I forgot to mention, I do have the original XP code taped to the computer, so I'm not just trying to acquire an illegal copy. Thought I'd better mention that.
