Having problems with your Dell OptiPlex GX270 PC Desktop ?

I bought a Dell Optiplex gx270 off Ebay. Where can I find a full restore disk?

Answers :

If it is still under warranty you can go to the dell site www.dell.com and order one. Other wise you will just have to pick up a new copy of Window and load it. And download the drivers for it by going to the dell support/drivers.
All dell computers come with a restore partition. If ever needed hit ctrl + F11 while the computer is starting to launch into the Norton restore utility. Takes about 5-10 minutes and will restore it to factory settings. Make sure you back up all data first as this will cause a full loss of data.
\015\012You can also contact dell support for a copy of all disks that wouldve came with the computer. For some models they are free and some are a minimal cost, it was around 10 bucks when I was working there.
