My daughter has a Dell inpiration laptop that is about 2 yrs old. There was so much **** on it that she took it to Best Buy to wipe the hard drive. They did but now she cannot find the Windows CD to reinstall the OS. She did not make any recovery discs either.

Apart from purchasing a new operating system, is there any way to recover from this SNAFU?

Best Buy should have made sure she had all the required items to reinstall before wiping the hard drive. I wish it were me boy there would be a lawsuit here   Angry


You can call the manufacturer of the laptop, be it Dell or HP and request the media to reinstall. You may have to pay but at least you will have it.

OR

You can install the OS using someone else's cds and cds only. With this I mean use the cds but use the license off the bottom of the laptop when it asks you to type it in. Then go the manufacturers website and install the drivers.

Here is another option go download a free copy of fedora and use it as your OS. I am sure you will be surprised how easy it to setup and use. even has a live disk to try it out first=)

You can use data backup software to recover the data if hard drive is not damaged, or you can call ontario computer support specialists.

Thanks
