[access-uk] Re: Net Book Thread - Tosheba NB 100

Hi George,
I doubt this is the case, I've found that I've never had to activate Windows if 
it is an OEM copy, as the maker of the PC has always incorperated the serial 
number or activation key into the install of Windows. This is usually because 
popular manufacturors of PC's like HP, Del, Samsung etc only supply you with a 
recovery disk, not a full Windows CD. I could be wrong, but something tells me 
that XP will not require activation by the user on the NC10.

It's very likely to be either the Windows Registration for or the
Windows Activation form.

Pity the guy in the shop didn't follow this through.

Hi I decided not to go for the Tosheba in the end but for the NC10.
Last 
night I was very disappointed as I could not see a power light on and 
decided I would have to take it back to the shop today.  I did this 
afternoon and immediately the man plugged it in and showed me where
the gren 
light was.  I could see the light.  I then asked him if he would go
through 
the set-up bit and he very kindly did.  It took about 15 minutes or 
thereabouts so I went off and did my shopping and then it was ready.
Now I 
have it back home I still cannot see that green light but have tried
without 
the battery and yes indeed the power is coming through.  Now there is
some 
form or something coming up after Windows has booted up.  What would
that 
be.  I tried using the voice thing, I forget what that is called,
Chris 
recommended it to me but it was and is not making enough sense to me
to know 
what to do now.  I will have no problem once someone who can see is
around 
but if anyone can tell me about this then I can move on another pace.
In 
the meantime at least I can leave it  charging for the next 6 hours.

Eleanor
