What OS came with the laptop? Is it the same OS you are using right now, or have you installed Windows again yourself?

You don't seem to have a recovery partition.

Did you make recovery disks?

If not, your only choice may be to download an ISO of your Windows version from mydigitallife.info, burn it to a disc, and reinstall.

Or order recovery disks from Dell as TheOG says.
