She bought it at an auction at the Bank at where she works.
As per legal procedure, of course the Hard Drive was wiped out.
I already have the link to where I can fill out the form for ordering the Dell Recovery Disks for my particular computer.
The big question is: How much will the Recovery Disks Cost?
I've read here and there that "If one QUALIFIES," one can get them for FREE.
Given that I am obviously NOT the original Owner of that computer, what are the odds that I'll be getting the Recovery Disks for FREE?
If I'm NOT likely to get the Recovery Disks for FREE, how much AM I likely to have to cough up?
I've seen the amount of $15.00 be tossed around here and there.
Is THAT what I can expect to pay? Does that sound about right?
And would that be TOTAL ... or is Shipping & Handling extra?
If it makes any difference, the OS that computer had before was Windows XP Professional.
So, of course, that's the OS that'll be on the Recovery Disks.
