Do you need any operating system software?


When I purchased my PC about a year ago,I did not receive any OS start-up software

No Windows XP Disc. this was all pre-loaded so I was told. Do I need this software?

How do I get it?,Will it cost me money now? Sometimes on your advice pages I se you say to

re-load your OS,How could I do this without my installation disc? Thank You LARRY K

Well when you purchased your pc, you should have gotten alot of software that comes packaged with the pc You might want to double check and make sure it isn't lying around somewhere Yes, you do need an os disc wether it be windows 2000, xp or whatever It is always good to have it because any time a computer can go bad and you might need to re-install windows It will cost you money to buy a windows OS or unless you know someone who has windows xp so until you run into a problem you are safe for now but i would go and get a windows OS as soon as possible.
