Worked with dell tech support, they said i needed to find the original operating system disc and re-install it, however even if i did find it, my cd-rom is not working properly.

Well a CD-ROM is only $15. [bleep], I have a box full of them.

The more troubling thing is you say it cant find a hard disk. Does it show up in the BIOS?
