no software with pc!!

  simongy 18:51 20 Oct 2003

I have bought a pc: all its has is the cd for motherboard and drivers for hardware. It has no o/s etc installed on the hard drive. what is the cheapest/best option for getting a version of windows, and some office or wordprocessing software??

For a copy of Windows try e-bay. For freeware versions of almost anything else you may need click here

What you have may limit what you can install.

For OS click here if you phone them you could ask if they have any Win98 left. For free Office software and some other click here although they look like Demo?s they are not, and do not have a 30 day date bomb. they just keep working
