First get the owners manual from Dell web site. If the service tag is still on that will help. Then find out how one is supposed to recover the system. A hidden partition may still exist.

If not then contact dell and see if you can buy an OEM recovery disk. Some are pretty reasonable. I have heard other companies that charge like $20 for a disk.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

How much RAM does your laptop have? Ubuntu may be the better choice.
