I am currently running windows xp home edition as well as windows 7 on my acer laptop. My computer has slowed down and i want to re-install windows on my pc. But I do not have the windows cd and so when I started looking to purchase one i found a windows xp pro online but i am not sure if it works on my pc. Can anyone help with this?

If your computer can run XP Home then it can run XP Pro. However, you need to make sure any CD you buy on-line has the activation Key (CoA) supplied with it as you XP Home key will not work.

Or you can just use Magic Jelly Bean Key Finder to retrieve the product key that was used to install XP Home, then download a copy of XP Home from the torrents for free. Nothing illegal about that provided the key you use is legit. It would be the same as me letting you borrow my XP disc. The product key is the important thing.
