First, I have an Acer Travelmate 2480 - 2153 that was originally Vista Basic and I purchased at Staples and they were able to convert it to Home Edition XP, however they did not provide me with the install CD. The noteook has been working fine until of recent date.
Now I have been having problems and know that when the 'sfc /scannow asks for the CD for the dll. cache it is very likely b/c of problems that I have been having. I know the key number of the OEM cd that was installed on my notebook, however that is all.
I have a backup Acronis image, but it includes the 'sfc /scannow' image.
I don't know where to proceed or how?
I did not think at the time to look for the install CD and now as well realize that I am sp3.
I would appreciate experienced comments as I don't know what to do with the fact that I don't have the OEM cd and of course it is not sp3.
Thank you.
