Restore CD's are generally customized to the specific PC. I hate that too, believe me. You can certainly try it, but there is a good chance it will not work, as the drivers/files on the restore CD for one PC are tailored for the hardware in it. Your best bet is to contact Dell directly for a copy, providing them with your PC information. It may only cost $20-30. The alternative would be to take a CD with only the OS (operating system - e.g. WIndows 7, etc., and use it to reformat and reinstall your system. If you do reformat, however, there is a good chance that you will lose all personal files, documents, pictures, etc., on your PC. If you know a computer geek (friend or family), it may be a good idea to seek their assistance. I've helped mine many times. All the best ~ JD

SOURCE: Memory stick pro not recognized any more by dell inspiron 6400

try your memory stick to any other computer check if memory stick still working. if yes then update the BIOS of your computer by downloading the latest BIOS from the dell support site. If memory reader still not working after updating BIOS then have that part replace or if it is integrated with motherboard have your motherboard replaced.

You need an original Windows 7 installation CD to change from Vista to Windows 7.
After purchasing the installation CD, simply install it and Windows Vista will be replaced by Windows 7.

There is something wrong with my sound when there is a CD in the drive.

First try doing a system restore to a point that you remember the sound working properly. If this doesn't help, get back to me and I'll see if we can narrow it down further.
