If dell will sell you the restore media. Try them first.
When I purchased my computer from Dell, it had a System Restore program pre-installed. I immediately contracted a virus and had to reinstall my XP system, which apparently whiped out the System Restore, although my computer states it is still there -- and I can start the system restore but get no results. Is there a way to resinstall the Dell PS System Restore or purchse the program so that I can reinstall it myself?
I have a Dell Inspiron 530 with an XP Operating System. I also have the option of installing Vista.
