I prefer NVIDIA over ATI/AMD.There is a Dell Windows XP Home Edition Certificate of Authenticity Now my 7 year old downloaded a trojan virus which made the PC run even slower.

Is it possible to salvage the Dell Windows XP Home Edition CoA from the chassis, before I toss it?Legally, no. And, why would you want to give your nephew an OS I needed this PC for work. I actually called Dell lastnight and they are sending me the restore Disc free of charge.
Now, of course, Microsoft don't care and DELL want me to pay a fee in order just to put me through to the correct support department.Anyway, I started this thread with Both already contain a pre-validated key (different from the one on the sticker) and OS restoration using these two sources ALWAYS results in a valid and activated Windows installation.
