Question about Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop
If you have the restore disk run it and it will format your computer then install fresh version of XP then install Office XP.
You can download XP if you don't have the disk.
Is it legal to download XP (YES) as it does not have any keys to hack it, there should be product code on your PC.

If your dell has the complete system restore option (it should if the system is original), the easiest thing to proceed is selecting the restore option from start menu/dell/.. .
If you do not have dell tools it means that the system had been already reinstalled after purchase. In this case you will need to use a generic Windows setup disk.
To install windows from the disk you will need a valid license, check the sticker at the back of your pc and install same windows version (eg. Windows xp home, windows xp professional etc.).
After installing windows from cd you will need to download and install drivers. You can download drivers from dell website.
Best solution is using Dell tools, this will reinstall everything at once.
