I need the reinstall disc as the original is lost. Do you think I could buy one from Dell?
If not, what are the alternatives? Should I buy a fresh copy of XP from Dell? Just buy a retail generic copy of XP?
The Symantec restore does not work nor any other restore method!
PC new in 2007 but hardware works Goood!

Dell may or may not charge you for them.

Also, you would need to download and install the drivers for your system. Please check the link below which would be helpful for you:
