Old Jul 10th, 2007, 07:17 PM        I need a Windows Operating System
Here's the ting: my harddrive on my ENTERTAINMENT/RADIO STATION computer died so I bought a new one. I ransacked everything I own to try and find the restore discs but can not find them. Its no fair that I would have to spend 100 bucks on an OS because well just because

So I am looking for a solution that will not cost me money or make me go into untrustworthy websites where I may end up downloading something sketchy

Does anybody know of any reliable places where I can make this happen? I am looking for windows XP or Vista would be good as well.

My problem with Ubuntu and Linux in general is that web access is a must. You can't add or compile programs without it because you need to download the compilers. Agh. And I can't get any of the audio codecs, either.

I'm left with .ogg and no video functionality on my upstairs computer. It doesn't have a network card.

So yeah.

Hey guys

Turns out emachines will send me new restore discs even though the computer isn't registered under my name. I just have to pay for shipping!

It costs 20 dollars to ship it!

Shit, that twenty bucks is probably for meth or some shit man.

Expect a bag of flaming dog shit once they get your money. You might see one of them tripping onto the ground when you come to answer the door.

Seriously though, 20 to ship a friggin' CD/Floppy? Probably the mail guys who do the meth then. Not enough fucking disclipline in this world man.

I don't think eMachine restore discs work on any computer but the one for which it's specifically designed. BUYER BEWARE!

Why am I seeing you post everywhere? It's not that I'm reading anything that's worthwhile or that is relevant.

Just asking.

You are correct. I've been waiting for important and interesting people to post, and all I've seen is you. I'm upset at these forums.
