Wow windows 7 is pricey, does anyone recommend another OS. Being 14 and all I need something in a affordable budget.

Ubuntu is a really good OS in my opinion and is free.

Also, does the computer have a product key sticker on it?

But does it have a sticker that says some thing like "Windows 7 Professional Dell OEM Product Key". Followed by a 25 random numbers and letters, and have a bar code?

It sounds like you do not have a product key, so you will have to buy either a full copy of Windows 7 (not an upgrade copy) or user a version of linux, like Ubuntu.

If you can borrow or make a copy of a friends OEM installation DVD, or download an ISO file to burn, you can try this.
Clean Install : Factory COA Activation Key
If you can't find your exact version you can do this.
Windows 7 Universal Installation Disc - Create
Just install the version listed on the COA sticker. The product code is good for 32 bit or 64 bit, its your choice which one you want to use.

There are plenty of download spots available, so if you search for MyDigitalLife, you'll find them....and they are legit, as they are right from Microsoft. Download the version and language that your product key is for, and then you can wipe the drive and do a clean install.
