I crashed my dell and need to re-intall windows

\015 I crashed my dell and need to re-install windows xp, where do i get the back up cd wn? Is it possible to download it from a separate computer on a usb or cd then insert it into my dell. The only thing that comes up on the screen of my dell is white print saying re-install windows 32\015

Answers :

There should be a hidden partition on the hard drive with the recovery data information on it. When you first turn on the computer hold down the Ctrl and keep pressing the F11 key. It should take you into the factory restore.

If it doesn't then that means that the factory restore partition is gone and you'll have to restore the computer with the windows xp opeating system cd and a drivers and utiities cd to get the drivers installed for the hardware.






There is a particiam on your dell that has all the restore data on it do you have the restore disk insert it and go. you will loose all the data that is on the comp when you do it. if you need that data pull the drive and put on another comp and copy it off. the reinstall it and then restore it. if you dont have the disk contact dell for a replacement.
