Reinstalling Windows XP on a Dell Optiplex 760

Nice day

I reinstall Windows XP on a Dell Optiplex 760.
The system came preloaded with it, even if the certificate of authenticity (COA) indicates has a license for Windows Vista professional.
I'm reinstalling provided factory recovery disc.
My question is, what to do when it comes to enter a product key? Of course the key to Windows Vista Business will not work. There is none on the system or on the cover of the CD.

Well, I found the answer, it does not require a product key.

    If the machine came originally with Vista, and you charged it with Win 7 disc by the same manufacturer, it will go into a grace period and the non-genuine end - the key used for this installation requires data appropriate to the SLIC table in BIOS in order to activate it.

  • Form factor of the graphics cards that work with the Dell Optiplex 760 desktop computer?


    So I recently got this Dell OptiPlex 760 desktop form factor that I really like and I would get a video card for it.

    It's the desktop form factor. The second largest next to the mini tower. There a 240W (or 250?) food I don't want to change. I would like a GPU that works with a supply of 240 w.

    I wish it were less than 60 dollars. I do some light games (Minecraft) and want to join a substantial amount of FPS with this game. Suggestions of the card?

    I'll give you more information.

    It fits into all THE MODELS except the USFF because USFF has no slots.  You will need to remove the flange size and use the version of low profile.

    Maximum power allowed is 25W on low profile units.

    It is also why they Print 25W max on the 16 X video slot.

  • Dell OptiPlex 760 ultra small form factor possible to add ddr3 ram?

    Hello world

    I have an old OptiPlex 760 ultra small form factor, and I just installed 10 windows, which runs most of the time without a hitch.

    This OptiPlex 760 has a processor Intel Core Duo E8600 in there. I've been googling and if I understand correctly, this processor supports ddr2 and ddr3 ram. Does this mean that I can put ddr3 ram in this machine?

    I also wonder if I add more than 4 GB of ram to it. I know officially it says max ram supported is 4 GB, but if I look at my MacBook it says max supported ram is 8 GB and I have 16 GB in it.

    So I wonder if this is the case even with my OptiPlex.

    Thank you.

    I put ddr3 ram in this machine?

    It depends on the chipset and since Crucial offers only DDR2 RAM for this system...

    It may or may not work with more than 4 GB. Look so all about these forums to see if anyone succeeded with more than 4 GB. At the very least, buy it from a source so it takes 8 GB does not work.

  • Need help to reinstall Windows XP on a Dell Dimension 2400 desktop

    I bought this desktop computer Dell Dimension 2400 in 2003 as a wedding gift for my daughter and son-in-law.  They are busy and it was not much used, but it just got to the point where he needed the reinstalled op.  I've done it before on my computer so I suggest you to do it for them.  When my daughter went to recover the disks supplied with the PC there is no House of windows xp included reinstall op edition drive and I don't think I ever had one with the PC.  Other CDs were there.  I decided to try to use reinstall windows xp edition drive family of my Dell Dimension 2200 op.  I was told that it was OK to do this when I spoke with a Dell technician.  When it finished formatting and installation of the op I found that I did not set up an internet connection.  In Device Manager, the Ethernet hardware has question marks by them and are highlighted in yellow, even though I had put in the resource CD and downloaded that and everything on all the other drives right after the installation.  If I could get on the internet I could download the drivers and other necessary things for other minor problems, I'm having too large icons, etc.  The only difference between the Dell Dimension 2400 and my Dell D 2200 is the 2400 internet ready came from the factory, and I added the ethernet card in my Dell Dimension 2200, Linksys.  Otherwise, they both use the same broadband, Roadrunner, which is always on cable modems.  What can I do now?

    The product key is the 25-character code on the sticker on the computer case.  Keys for the home edition are not compatible with other editions (Pro, Media Center, etc.).

    I am looking to buy a new motherboard, of course I prefer not having to buy another copy of Windows 7 so im asking if its possible (and legal) to use windows 7 key product that came with my Dell Inspiron 570 to install in a new motherboard.
