If you try your local small shop, it is likely that they have a trade in and will check it over and reinstalll Windows for you. I did this three years ago when my old machine packed up. He had a trade in with 64 RAM. He upgraded it to 256, transferred my relatively new hard drive and CD Rom, reinstalled windows, checked everything over, and gave me a years warrenty. All this for the princely sum of £140. He has since built me the all new, all singing and dancing machine that I have since been able to afford.
