I just had to reinstall Windows on my Dell 2400. I didn't have the disc because it was installed when I bought it. I went to Microsoft support, had to pay $99 to get a disc sent to me and get the "premium repair" done. I had to buy an external hard drive to save my data, reinstall Windows XP sp2 from the disc, transfer the data back to my hard drive, upgrade to sp3, and install drivers plus all my programs from discs or downloads. I lost most of them and will have to buy or download them as I need them. I had to go to my friend's computer to download broadband drivers before I could even get online! Not fun at all and it took about a week to get it done.
