I clobbered my Windows XP and have had to re-install it from scratch on a Dell Inspiron 1705 Laptop. Getting an error message when I try to install the Dell System driver file MP061AP09.exe) Has anyone run into this message below ?
"You may be a victim of software counterfeiting. This copy of Windows did not pass genuine Windows validation. The AC adapter and battery must be plugged in before the system BIOS can be flashed. Press OK when they are both plugged in or cancel to Quit".
(I am using AC Power ... I removed the Battery to confirm it ... AND my original Windows XP CD)
