Trying to reinstall windows 7 on my computer? Help please!?

Okay... so I lost everything on my computer when I was out of the country. Spilled coke on my computer and had to have the hard drive replaced. I got it fixed and the new hard drive has a professional version of windows 7 (in spanish) on it. The version that was put on did not have a license. I planned to come back to the US and reinstall my windows home premium 7 disc on it, but when I insert the disc into the drive, the computer cannot read it. It makes a loud buzzing noise and then ejects itself from the drive. The computer can read other discs. I also inserted the disc into another computer and it is not being read. Any ideas on why this is happening? Did Dell give me a faulty disc? The serial number on it is P/N 00WK4. Any help is greatly appreciated.


The disc is probably damaged and there's no way you can fix it. Either you order a new set of recovery discs from Dell or get a Windows 7 installer. I'll assume you still have the OEM sticker containing the product key for your Windows 7 Professional edition. As you didn't say what version (32 or 64-bit) you have, choose the right one to download: Windows 7 Professional Edition SP1 (bootable) x86 (32-bit) version -- http://msft.digitalrivercontent.net/win/ X17-24280.iso x64 (64-bit) version -- http://msft.digitalrivercontent.net/win/ X17-24281.iso Those are genuine ISO images of Windows 7 Pro w/ integrated Service Pack 1 installer. It comes from Digital Rivers which is Microsoft's official online retailer of Microsoft products. Downloading the files from Digital River is absolutely legal and completely free of charge. As this is an official download channel, you can also be sure to receive a disk image free of viruses and malware. Without a legally obtained Product Key however, any Windows 7 installation will only run for 30 days. Afterwards, it needs to be activated. If you have a valid Product Key, this should not be a problem. If you have at least 4GB of RAM or are planning on adding more memory, plan ahead and choose the 64-bit version. If your product key is not for Windows 7 Pro but for a different edition like Home Premium or Ultimate, convert the ISO image to a universal installer so you can still use the image to install the edition you need. Use this converter: http://code.kliu.org/misc/winisoutils/ Burn the ISO image to a DVD or transfer it to a USB flash drive using this Microsoft USB / DVD Download Tool: http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msst ore/html/pbPage.Help_Win7_usbdvd_dwnTool Use either the DVD or USB flash drive to reinstall your OS and activate it with the OEM product key that matches the edition you installed.

From ur question,it seems ur disc is badly scratched. Try to recover all the data from the CD in any other computer ,Then write a new cd.Serial no. will be the same,License encoder must be turned off,After installation.
Xihu | Jan 04, 2012
I say the disc is faulty since it was not read by other computer. Buy new disc and try reinstalling.
Laurence I | Jan 04, 2012
This is a common problem due to being out of balance the process of creating a flat plastic disc is not the most technically advanced. and there are several easy solutions 1 get dell to replace the disk 2 just DUPLICATE the disk in A N Other DESKTOP pc, use older media(slower speed) if ...possible to guarantee that the media will be recognised.

So recently my motherboard broke so i had to replace the motherboard and the computer is still brand new and under asus's 1year warranty, since the new motherboard does not work with my hard drive and wont boot into windows, can i ask the manufacturer a cd and the code to reactivate windows 7 onto a new drive for the new motherboard? or do i have to either pay tiger direct 80 dollar to re install windows on it for buy new windows 7 disk?


Did your computer come with an OEM sticker containing the product key? If yes, all you need to do is find a Windows 7 installer disc and use the same product key to activate it. What edition and version was installed on it? It could be Home Basic, Home Premium, Professional or Ultimate edition, and it could be 32 or 64 bit version.

    Turned an old XP computer into a new one!

    With Microsoft ending its support of XP on April 8th, I knew I had to do something about one of our older Dell computers that's been running XP for the last -- wow maybe 8 years? A little voice told me I should just spend $400 on a new computer instead of $100 on a new OS but the old computer works fine and was pretty fast on XP, and the Windows Upgrade Advisor (free download, google it) told me that the unit would have no problems with Windows 7.So I copied all of my picture and document files off of the computer onto an external hard drive and booted this DVD. It only took about 10 minutes to install Windows 7 and yes, the hardest part is reading the micro type on the password key to unlock the copy of Windows. I took a picture with my iPhone and then zoomed in to read the numbers but even with that one number was VERY hard to read. After activation I spent the next hour or so configuring the computer, and I used Windows Easy Transfer (another free program from... 5/5 Goldengate "Goldengate" (San Francisco, where else?) - See all my reviews, March 9, 2014

    Windows 7 beats Windows 8 In My eyes

    I purchased a brand new computer that came with Windows 8. I'm thinking cool, I can tinker around with a new OS. I couldn't get passed the login screen. No joke. As soon as the computer boots up its asking for a password. Come to find out it wants my Microsoft email.pw from like 20 years ago which I have no access to anymore. I literally couldn't get to the desktop. I have Windows 8 on my phone with no problems so I don't know what the problem was.Needless to say I purchased this Windows 7 Home Premium. Now I compared the differences between the versions but apparently not well enough. Turns out this version limits you to using 16GB RAM. My new computer had 8GB x 4 for 32 GBs of RAM. Under computer properties its says 32GB memory(16GB usable).I then proceeded to downloaded a cracked version of Windows Ultimate x64 which uses all 32GBs.

    How do-it-yourselfers do Windows.

    If you've reinstalled Windows just once in your life, you've learned enough to tackle a full virgin installation of Windows 7 from an OEM copy. Microsoft has finally created an operating system with so much built-in support and maintenance technology it practically does all the work for you, so if your current Windows XP machine is labeled "Windows Vista Capable" or "Windows 7 Capable," this is the way to go. Just to be sure, install and run Microsoft's Upgrade Advisor.You can't upgrade from XP to 7; you have to wipe the drive or partition and perform a clean install, but even an upgrade from Vista to 7 is fraught with peril, so you might as well do the same if you're running Vista.

    OEM Microsoft product

    I love the system builder version of Windows 7--- it installs the operating system only--- no junk, no ads, no nonsense. Instead if me having to spend hours deleting everything I do not need, I spend that time reinstalling my applications and being productive. What still surprises me is how fast it installs compared to all previous versions of Windows. I had the system to the point it was starting to update itself in less than 30-minutes which is awesome.I have installed both the 32-bit and the 64-bit versions without a hitch. The only [minor] gripe is that I wish I could set it on autopilot to install ALL of the updates without any intervention back-to-back-to-back. It seems as though it goes through the motions of updating this group which then triggers that grouping. I know I can just leave auto update on and let it do it over time, but I want it all done now. So while doing some other things I would go back every 20-min to see if I need to do anything. After a few... 5/5 The Goat (Maryland) - See all my reviews, January 20, 2012

This review is from: Windows 7 Professional SP1 32bit (Full) System Builder OEM DVD 1 Pack [Old Packaging] (Software) Using this disk produces a Win-7 system with OEM as the character part of the product ID. Thus if you need support from Microsoft, you can not get it for free. They tell you to contact the computer manufacturer, who would presumably be the OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) who installed Windows. You do have the option of paying for Microsoft support or asking questions on the Microsoft Forum (I have found that to be pretty useless).Also, this disk can not be used as a repair disk. It only has two modes: upgrade and install. "Upgrade" actually re-installs the operating system but supposedly saves your files and settings. Using either option requires registering the installation with Microsoft again, and the papers included with the disk indicate that, except in special circumstances, it can only be used once. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 12, 2013

    If you have XP, this beats buying a new computer.

    I have a 6 year old Dell with a quad core processor and 3 Gig of RAM. With the demise of XP coming up in April, I had to come up with a solution. I require a supported operating system for work. My alternatives were to buy a new computer (with Win8), or upgrade the old XP machine with a new OS. I picked this Win7 OS because it uses less resources than Win8 (which was actually a few bucks cheaper) and would be a better fit for an older machine. I was right. This is just the right solution for extending the life of an older computer. Win7 runs on my old system just as fast as the old XP OS and the user interface is intuitive and very easy to grasp if you're coming from XP or Vista. Another plus is that Win7 supports Office 2003, which I already own. Win8 doesn't. That saved a couple hundred bucks.Installation was very simple.

    Easy to install. My old hard drive died, so i installed a new hard drive and used the Windows 7 System Builder successfully

    The 500Gb hard drive on my Dell XPS 420 died and I struggled with how to get the machine up and running again without too much expense. First, I knew I needed a new drive and since I have been running Carbonite (on-line/off-site backup) on this machine, I purchased a 1Tb SATA drive and replaced the failed drive. After reading a bunch of license notes on Microsoft's website and a bunch of user comments, I figured out that I could use the "System Builder" version of Windows 7, because I was essentially building a system (for me). The only downside to this version of Windows that I can tell is that it does not come with support. I suppose the support is me, since I am the system builder. The second issue could be a downside, but I don't see how, really. The "System Builder" version of Windows 7 is locked to the machine I installed it on, so I can't move it to a new machine. Here is the workaround , from what I have read. If you purchase any upgrade, you now have a movable,... 5/5 Scott Somers "Scott" (Detroit, MI USA) - See all my reviews, September 10, 2011

    An Amazing Compact FileHub!

    The RAVPOWER FileHub came in a neatly packed small box. The RP-WD02 surprised me with its solid feel and well laid out compact design. It appears to be very well constructed, nothing flimsy about it. They weight of it in my hand assured me that it meant business without being too heavy! I appreciate the attractive design of the unit with its clean black look and with the grey rubber port covers. The various ports were easy to access and solid in the way they held the plugs. My IPhone 5 battery was at 35% and I plugged in to the USB port and was up to 100% in 90 minutes and that was while it was being used. Plenty of power left after the charge. The FileHub also provided a strong Wi-Fi signal throughout most of my 3,500 sq. ft. 2 story house. With the unit in my 2nd floor office signal strength was strong on the 1st floor. I made use of the IOS FileHub APP and that worked as described in the manual. I streamed music to my IPhone 5. So far I am very happy with this device and recommend... 5/5 Zonajoe - See all my reviews This review is from: [All-in-1] RAVPower FileHub Wireless File Media Transferring, Travel Router, 6000mAh External Battery , Wireless Micro SD TF Card Reader, HDD/USB drive wireless accessing, Wireless Storage For iOS/Android Devices, WLAN Hot Spot & NAS File Server.

    Little guy packing a big Punch

    0 5/5 Dat Hoang - See all my reviews This review is from: [All-in-1] RAVPower FileHub Wireless File Media Transferring, Travel Router, 6000mAh External Battery , Wireless Micro SD TF Card Reader, HDD/USB drive wireless accessing, Wireless Storage For iOS/Android Devices, WLAN Hot Spot & NAS File Server. (Personal Computers) This little device is pretty amazing for what it does. I initially had know idea what it was or what it can do. After reading the manual and using the device to its potential, I have to admit it worked flawlessly. I travel a lot for my job and some hotels that I stay at has no wifi but instead just a LAN port. This little guy here definitely came in handy when I needed wifi for my tablet. File transfer from hard drive and micro sd was a breeze with the app for my Android and windows devices. The bonus of it being a external battery was just the icing on the cake with this guy. In the end, I high recommend this device for what it offers to people who are extremely mobile in their daily lives. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 25, 2014

    This is a very good product that worked perfectly with our iPhones and our iPads! This device allows you to plug in a SD memory card, a USB memory stick or a USB hard drive and then connect to those storage devices using a built in WIFI network that is in the device. The RavPower WIFI Disk contains a rechargeable battery that will hold up to 3000 mAh of current charge to either operate itself for over 5 hours or it can be used to recharge your smart phone. I say smart phone because at 3000 mAh it will recharge your smart phone (Like an Apple iPhone) about 1.6 times but it really does not have enough power capacity to recharge a power hungry tablet like an Apple iPad 2, 3 or 4. Its output is 5VDC at 1 Amp current output.The built in WIFI system can connect simultaneously to up to 5 devices and stream music, movies, store files or audio books that you can listen to. This is perfect for power users who need more memory while on the road.In order to use the WIFI... 5/5 desktopsbyduck "Richard E. Moore" (Ellijay,Ga.
