need help fast. lost windows installation disk.

hi, I was having problems with my laptop being very slow and was trying to do a full system restore. I didnt have the battery in when i tried to do the restore and unfortunately half way through the charger came out and switched the laptop off. i turned it back on and it says i had to insert my windows disc which i dont have. it wont let me do anything else now. ive tried downloading windows to disc but when it gets back to the restore page it says i need to have the windows installation disc and wont let me restore from an earlier time as these have all been erased. its a dell inspiron n5030, with windows 7. what do i ask dell for if i have to ring them. please help me!!!!
