Dell restore disks are sold online. (Google for vendors.)

You will need the product key off the sticker on your Dell. The Dell site shows where to find those.

Here is the support and downloads site for the Dell Dimension E520 desktop.

You might want to add and save this site in your browser favorites/bookmarks list so you can readily refer to it when needed.

------------------------------------------------------------

Here is the on-line owner's manual for that desktop.

Click the + in Troubleshooting Tools

Select Restoring Your Operating System

You will then see the various options for doing it.
