    If you call them it will most likely be less then 30 dollars 15 for cd plus delivery

    I found this on the Dell site you may not need a CD restore, there should be a recovery partition, unless you have wiped it

    Using PC Restore in Windows XP or Media Center

    Restoring the original factory image erases ALL existing data. This includes files, folders, programs, drivers, E-mails, photos. Before performing a PC Restore, back up all personal files. If you do not back up your personal files, the data will be lost.

    1 Turn on the computer.


    2 When the Dell splash screen appears during the computer startup process, press and hold <Ctrl> and then press <F11>. Then, release both keys at the same time.
    NOTE: Some systems like Inspiron Mini 9 (910) do not support System Restore as they do not have <F11> nor any substitute.


    3 In the Dell PC Restore by Symantec window, click Restore. Alternatively, press <Tab> to highlight Restore, and then press <Enter>.


    4 When a warning message appears stating that all data will be lost, click Confirm, or press <Tab> to highlight Confirm and then press <Enter>.

    The Progress window will appear. Once the restore process starts, Dell PC Restore by Symantec usually takes about 8 to 10 minutes to finish.

    When the restore process is complete, the following message will appear:
    The system recovery process was successful.


    5 Click Finish or press <Tab> to highlight Finish and then press <Enter> to restart the computer.

    The software is now installed as it was when the computer was first received.
