Replacement Vista Discs in Canada???

Hey guys,

   I need to re install Vista on my M1210. I however have misplaced the Discs that came with the laptop.  I found a part of the Dell site that offers a one time replacement but there is no way to enter a Canadian address.  Does this service exist for Canada?

The online form that has been floating around these forums is for the U.S. Everybody else has to use Technical Support. Found this for you,

Red Dawn,

I can find no where on that site that allows the input of Canadian (eg. Province) information. It appears that this again is the standard US form.

The default for that link seems to be the USA, but somehow when you click it, if you were previously on Dell's Homepage for a different country, it will bring you to the relevant page for that region.

I had originally searched Dell Canada for that link and when I clicked it in my post above, I was brought to the correct [Canadian] page, but now see after cleaning my computer using CCleaner, the link now brings me to the same page, but for the USA.

 Something to do with cookies maybe??

 

Try this, go to Dell Canada's homepage, then copy and paste the link into the address bar at the top and press enter.

 

Never let it be said that Dell would make anything easy.

 

Thanks Rebel9 for bringing this to my attention.
