When you want to perform reinstall using cd, enter into bios by tapping F2 hey when you power on your laptop. Go to boot sequence and change ON board or USB CDRom to be first. Insert the Vista DVD. Save the settings and exit. When your system restarts you will find a quick message "Press any key to boot from cd/dvd...." when you see this message press any one of the key on the keyboard immediately.

Hi, Most dells sold in the last 4 to 5 years are sold with a recovery partition on the hard drive. what this means is you should not need any disc`s to do a recovery, unless you have replaced the hard drive. A little trick that most people dont know is that you only need to hold down the CTRL and F11 for a few seconds. Remember you need to do it a s soon as the laptop powers up, you should be given a menu asking you if you want to do a repair or full recovery. if you choose full recovery the the laptop will be restored to factory settings.... hope this helps
