okay so before anyone give me the "search" answer, ive beeen reading over a dozen threads trying to figure out this whole slp nonsense and i just cant get it. i have a gateway laptop that came with MCE 2005 preloaded, it crashed and i couldnt find my resore disk so i downloaded an untouched "OEM" version instead of paying gateway for a new disk. now im at the product key entry page, i tried putting in tthe key stuck on the bottom of my laptop but it wont work, ive tried several slp keys listed here and they arent working either. am i missing something? i shouldnt have to mess with the bios if my laptop already had MCE on it correct?
