You can go to dell.com and ask them for the disc needed. Expect to have to pay at least $25 for it. It could cost more for a recovery disc. Does the computer have a recovery partition on it already? When the computer first starts to boot-up do you see an option for Recovery listed along with Setup & Boot Menu? If yes, then press the key displayed for entering Recovery. If you don't see that option, then start tapping on the F12 key at boot. It should take you to Boot Menu. Do you see anything listed Utilities or Recovery? If yes, then choose that option to try to access your recovery partition. If you don't see anything useful for you there, then reboot and start tapping on the F8 key. A black screen with white text should be displayed with Safe Mode listed at the top. Look in this list for Utilities or Recovery. If you don't see it listed there, then it most likely means that the computer doesn't have a Recovery Partition or that part of the hard drive has malfunctioned for some reason. You could always try choosing LastKnownGoodConfiguration to see if that resolves your issues. Other than that I would just get the disc from Dell and use that, or take it to a computer shop and have them reinstall Windows on it. That may cost between $65 - $80.

Try booting into safe mode (F8 on boot) and using some of the built in disc checking utilities, If that does not help you may have to do a "Repair instalation"
Google that for more information

SOURCE: very slow boot on 660 inspiron
The first thing you can try is to start up your dos shell, Inside the dos shell type chkdsk /f this will run a check on your registry etc and will fix any issues that it may have, Please note that it will get so far and tell you that it could not perform an action as windows is currently being used do you wish to run this check the next time windows start, Tell it yes by typing y press enter and restart it will perform it's checks and if it finds any problems it will fix them and generate a report at the end to tell you what it fixed. If this does not work, Try updating your BIOS from the Dell website this can be found under the driver and support section you can download it or do it on line ( Best Off Downloading as it will restart your system into a setup type screen and you will loose your internet connection. If after all this and it is still very slow at startup contact Dell support for further technical assistance. I hope this helps.
