I need help. I was given a Dell Studio 1558 laptop, it has a slot drive for CD/DVD's and it does not work, so I cant install an OS on it. It gives an error message at the black screen...PXE error, Operating system not found.. I bought a new HD and still get the same error.
Please help me.. I need this laptop to be working for my job.

you could always pickup an external USB CD/DVD drive, and install the OS using that. Or depending on what OS you are using you may be able to download it online, and install from a USB flash drive

What's the "service tag" number and/or "express service code" number on that Dell Studio 1558 laptop?

It appears to be designed for Windows 7 64-bit and has a TSST TS-T633C 12.7mm Slotload DVD+/-RW drive.
