Answers :

Contact Dell to purchase a Recovery CD for your model Dell laptop.
\015\012The other way is to do a new Windows install. Use a Windows installation CD, it must match the Windows version on the Windows Product Code label on the bottom of your laptop.
\015\012You will also need to download the device drivers for your model laptop from the Dell WEB support site, make sure the download the correct XP or Vista version of the drivers that match the Windows version you are installing.
If your laptop have not been formatted before, and has retained the original partition tables, pressing Ctrl+f11at boot will bring up Symantec's System Restore for Dell.
This will help you to get your laptop back to factory settings.

If you want to format your computer, (with or without removing the partition tables), you can use any Windows XP installation cd with a valid windows xp product code, and do not have to use only the one which came with your laptop (if they shipped you one).

Remember to download the driver for your ethernet/modem of your laptop to a pen drive. So, when you reformat your computer, you can install your ethernet/modem driver and connect to the internet to download the rest of the drivers directly from the dell support site to your laptop.
