    long time since since I last contacted.It has been quite interesting what happened since.i bought a dell installation CD on Ebay that was Oct.4 2010
    it never arrived cost was £8.25 was a swindler but got money back from ebay
    however bought another CD from ebay and it worked great did not even put in ID number
  4. Don't even bother with contacting Dell unless you want a headache.
