How to Reinstall Windows When Missing the CD

Manuel writes in with a software question
Question:How can I restore Windows XP without buying another set of discs?

Answer: If you want to reinstall XP or even do a repair installation of XP then you will need to have the XP CD to do so. If you still have your key you can use that with someone else's CD. You can find your Windows key using the Magic Jellybean Keyfinder if you don't have the original sticker. Some computer manufacturers put a sticker on the case with the Windows key as well.
