overwrote XP with win98.

  1. Hi my kids had a problem with the laptop and put my old win 98 disc in and overwrote XP with win 98. I do not have the XP disc but I have the security password sticker and the bottom of the laptop. Any ideas of how to get XP back?
    Thanks.

    You can try contacting the laptop manufacturer - short of that, buy it

    You might be able to borrow someone's XP OEM disk. It has to be the correct kind disk for your CD key.
