How to Factory Restore Inspiron 530 Desktop without Windows Vista Installation Disk

Hello, Everyone!

I have been trying to factory reset my desktop Dell Inspiron 530 with Windows Vista Home Premium for so long. I have tried the "Repair Your Computer" option in the F8 Advanced Boot Options when I restart it, but it just resumes normal start up. I have also tried to restore to an earlier time but it doesn't have any saved! I would really like to restart fresh without having to buy the Installation CD or anything else. Help?

You can't do either and your drive is likely bad enough that you need a new one.

Finding the reinstall dvd will be a pain because they are no longer available.
