If you read my post carefully you'll see it was just the key from MY sticker that didn't work. I know how tempting it is for some people to steal, be it licence keys or pieces of HW. I've download the drivers and backed up important files just need alittle more info to get going. have a peek at these guys Been doing it since I started here with 386 gear running 98 - and 98 was past its prime then.

Microsoft said it's been used on another PC, so clearly, somebody at Dell had stolen and used the key thinking I would never need to use it.
