Installlation disk for Dell Inspiron 1720

How can I get an Installation disk for my Dell Inspiron 1720?  My LapTap computer is asking to put in the Installation disk - which I don't have.

Any help very much appreciated since my computer expert past away.

That system shipped with Windows Vista and has long passed its warranty period you will need to look for a Dell Windows Vista Reinstallation DVD on the likes of eBay.

Its not recommended to install an obsolete version of Windows however. If you are fast you can use the Windows 10 Insider Build 10130 (which expires in about a week) as a stepping stone to get Windows 10 Pro for free:
