    If you need the operating system to flash the BIOS reinstall the original OS.

    What's the model number of that Dell Inspiron laptop?

    What's the 7-character "service tag" number on the sticker?

    I assumed that before you tried to install Windows 7 you were using another operating system (Vista, XP, etc.) and also assumed that it was one that came pre-installed (the "original'). Probably that's too many assumptions. :(
