This is a problem with all the Laptop makers. How do you prove that the computer is really yours.
If you have the original purchase reciept or sales order send a copy to Dell with a letter explaining that the original CDs have been lost. This worked for me.

Currently Dell provides a replacement CD if the computer is less that 21 days old. From what I see on the Dell forums, attempting to buy one may result in 12-15 hours on the phone to India, mostly waiting in line after being transferred. One thing they don't do is make anything easy in Customer Service.



Check this Dell forum, you might find some help:
