Hi mkruis1, If you live in the US, you can order your disc online HERE, if you live outside the US, you have to phone Dell support in your country.

Hope this helps.

Many, though not all, Dell computers built after mid-2004 came and still come with a built-in program called PC Restore that enables you to go back to "factory new" condition with a program on the hard drive, wherein you would not need to do a manual reinstall.  See this as it may apply to you, depending on your computer model.
