If your laptop have not been formatted before, and has retained the original partition tables, pressing Ctrl+f11at boot will bring up Symantec's System Restore for Dell.
This will help you to get your laptop back to factory settings.
If you want to format your computer, (with or without removing the partition tables), you can use any Windows XP installation cd with a valid windows xp product code, and do not have to use only the one which came with your laptop (if they shipped you one).
Remember to download the driver for your ethernet/modem of your laptop to a pen drive. So, when you reformat your computer, you can install your ethernet/modem driver and connect to the internet to download the rest of the drivers directly from the dell support site to your laptop.
