To start what operating system are you running? Dell's website has manyy troubleshooting and restore proceedures but you need to know your operating system(XP,Vista, or Windows7). Laptops with newer versions such as vista or windows7 automatcily back up your data to a second partition in the hard drive. There should be a complete copy of your original configuration from the factory which is used to reinstall the operating system and then alowwing restore of data from the same secondary partition so you will not lose you data. I can help you with this but I need whioch operating system your runing. In case your wondering Dell and other maufatcurers stopping sending operating systems discs with the ;laptops when you buy then, instead as mentioned before they install the oprating system on a seperate partition in your hard drive. they did this to stop the bootleggin of the operating discs. You can also contact Dell and give them the information from the servie tag on the bottom of your computer. The service tag # is like a serial number and contains the configuration of the laptop. You can purchase a copy of this disc from Dell for no cost if laptop is under warranty or for a small charge of about $30 if out of warranty, but if reinstaling from the disc all old data will be lost unless you can copy it before reinstallin the operating system.
