windows 8 download for inspiron?

Jump to solution

I have an inspiron n5050 laptop, and it is now officially a "brick".  I need to restore to factory, but dont have a recovery disk.  Also dont seem to have the win8 install cd.  How can I download one, so that I can get my laptop going again?

The N5050 is too old to have shipped with Windows 8 -- it came with Windows 7.  You can purchase a recovery flash drive from Dell (as long as you're the registered owner) for about $40.
