      That's correct , there is no longer any operating system installed . Either you or your cousin will have to install the operating system of choice. Go into the bios, and change the boot sequence to cd-rom first boot , exit bios,
      put the bootable operating system cd into the cd -rom and reboot the machine ....... follow the instructions.

      If you don't know the answer, it isn't a dumb question.

        gqgq69x ....All you need is the nice shiny MS XP ( either home or pro ) cd and the serial code which should be on the laptop somewhere. Look on the bottom ....... for a label ....with a 25 digit alpha numberic code.
