Option 1: Install "regular" Windows on it, you have to pay relevant price.
Option 2: If your laptop came with Windows (there is hologram sticker on it with Microsoft logo), order recovery disks from Dell.

1) check with dell for a Disk, Will cost.
2) Laptop should have sticker on Bottom with Lic key. Barrow a DVD Installation disk - DO not use the key for that disk, NOR input the Key when prompted. After installation, USE the Key that is on YOUR laptop to activate. If by chance it comes up with a error mesage, just call microsoft to resolve.

YOU DO NOT need to Buy a NEW windows installation disk - You have a valid key for that laptop. You paid for the KEY. When you buy a win 7 installation disk you are paying for the Lic + 5 bucks for the Disk - LOLs

@Chief - Dell sells Windows-less laptops in lot of countries, so it's not clear whether this particular one has a sticket.
