    Hi There!

    The first thing you will want to do is check Dell's Website and download all the drivers they have available for your system.

    Next, you'll need to find the operating system CD that came with the laptop or BUY a new one.

    As a suggestion, Call Dell and see what they'll charge ya for replacement restoration software. might not be that bad and should definately be cheaper than buying a Windows CD.
