Yes, if what you are inquiring about is the original Operating System, and all softwares that you received on purchase that may have come pre-installed on the computer etc.
Some of the newer computers that you buy may not come with any CD's at all, and they have special products installed that allows you to fix problems with your computer from them, rather than having to use the CD's like earlier computers. However if these products are not helpful the Manufacturer will send you the original softwares on CD or DVD to assist in repair your computer.
