If computer tuning on desk top I get no message screen goes blue with White writing as when installing windows. It happens so quickly I cannot read the screen

Hope this helps

Ok,

 

Can you tell me if your copy of XP is a full version, Not an OEM from another machine or an upgrade disk?

 

Thanks

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
It is an oen version I did not realize this when I bought it. I have mac book pro running on similar and no problems.
Maybe Inac is more sensitive. Please advise what I should do next - thanks

Sorry Nick,

 

I am usually here from 6pm onwards.

 

Now can you tell me what type of machine this OEM version is for?

 

Thanks

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
On one version it Sony on the other it doesn't say. I used the Sony version on mac book pro and then again on iMac because no problems with MacBook I used the serial no of unmarked version to register. So I guess the short answer to your question is Sony

Regards nick

Ps thanks for letting me know your times are you in Uk or us ?


Expert:  Claws224 replied 5 years ago.

I am in the Eastern US.

 

How did you activate these copies of XP and did they activate properly?

 

Thanks

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Yes they did on line in the usual way automatically. I should have realized this own business. I was being driven by price and wasn't thinking too much about microsoft intracacies of licencing or even that it might be bespoke for a particular machine. Hope you have a solution monat v tight at this time.

Look forward to hearing from you later

All the best

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
