Dell Inspiron 1545 64 Bit Windows 7 reinstall (no cd). Help please

Hello, 

I've had my Inspiron since the past 5-6 years and have never had any problems with it, but since it has started to become a bit slow so I was hoping to do a reinstall. 

The issue I am having is that I donot have any of the CDs or original media that it originally came with. I know that my other HP laptop (that came preinstalled with Windows 10) does not require external media for a reinstall, but since my Dell is so old, I am not so sure about it. Also I am currently running Windows 10 (free upgrade) but it came preinstalled with Windows 7.

How do I go about reinstalling Windows with a CD? Any help will be appreciated!

The system will already have a digital entitlement to Windows 10 - you simply need to download an ISO of the same version of 10 you have now and write it to a DVD or flash drive to reload Windows.
