Having problems with your Dell Dimension 9150 (DIM915MIN) PC Desktop ?

When I turn the PC on, some sort of buzzer goes off a few times.

\015 It then checks the disc drives and then sits doing nothing.\015\012Im guessing I need the original dics to boot up with, but lord knows where they are. How do i go about getting them (if I need them of course).\015\012\015\012Thanks,\015\012\015\012Andy\015

Answers :

Well I would look for a copy of windows somewhere. Being that it is a dell you should have your windows key on the back of the computer on a sticker. So it isnt illegal for you to download the exact type of windows. You could technically have made copies of your previous copy. As long as you have the key. You can also contact dell about replacements usually runs around 40$ for most companies.
