Generally, yes, if it's the same version, (e.g., "Home Edition, or "Professional", etc.Then the Operating System disk should get you going well enough to start all the necessary updates You may need to go to Dell and download the model specific driver files, updates, etc. to get everything !00%
Make sure you have the right Microsoft Product key for the installation.
Best thing you can do is back up your system and keep it somewhere separate, with all this info. There are many good free utilities for system specs., such as Belarc Advisor. It's easier to fix a broken system when you can automatically put everything right from backups, where ever possible.You are thinking ahead, instead of after a disaster!
Good luck.!

My dell 2400 is infected with viruses. what can i do. i cant set restore point or connect with internet to download fix


In cases like this and you do not have a virus removal disk, then I suggest you format your hard disk and re-install Windows.
Use a Windows installation CD; it must match the Windows version on the Windows Product Code label on the bottom or back of your computer.
You will also need to download the device drivers for your model laptop from the Dell WEB support site, make sure the download the correct XP or Vista version of the drivers which matches the Windows version you are installing.


You can download the drivers from Dell WEB site, the support download page. Make sure you select your model desktop or laptop, better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on the bottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. (If the Service Tag label is missing then go into the BIOS setting and on one of the BIOS pages, the Service Tag number will be displayed). This will open the page where the specific drivers for your model computer are located. Also make sure you select the Windows XP or Vista version of the drivers for your Windows operating system. Click on this link to download the drivers: -

Dell 4600 without operating system disc. How to reboot computer


You need not buy any WINDOWS DISK, if u can borrow the WINDOWS XP DISK from your frenn or relative just for an hour then we can go ahead and help u with the FRESH WINDOWS RE-INSTALLATION and all the spyware infection would be cleaned up .. As far as WINDOWS GENUINE SOFTWARE LICENSE is concerned just look at the back of your DELL PC, there would be 2 WHITE BAR CODED STICKERS one of them will have the WINDOWS XP PRODUCT KEY which we can use and you NEED NOT WASTE your hard earned earned $100 for that disk which u can borrow i believe..


temme as soon as u get the disk......

One more thing that DELL cant charge u for the disk, because when u bought the system or in your case when the system was bought the amount was paid for the WINDOWS GENUINE LICENSE and the disk... so in case they don't provide you with the disk and you don't find the product key then call them and get the GENERIC PRODUCT KEY ATLEAST... WELL WHAT I BELIEVE IF U R LIVING IN U.S.A. THEN call them back and asked for the disk again because i've worked in dell and i have send disk to many people free of cost whose disk has been lost or damaged even if the system is out of warranty..

Dell 2400 dimension


One thing to try is this:

When the pc starts to boot up from the disk, and you get to the point where it asks which partition to install Windows, go ahead and delete all partitions (unless one has the restore image, or you just want to keep a separate partition), or just the main big one. Now follow the instructions to create a partition, and make it as big as desired, again depending on weather you want two, or just one large one. Now tell the pc to install Windows on the newly created partition and see what happens.
I am trying to help, so please don't rate me, UNLESS I fixed it. Thanks!
