Restoring Original Operating System

Recently I dropped my laptop, Dell Studio 1535, which resulted in what I believe to be a damaged hard drive. I got a message no bootable device found. I did F12, I think it was, and it found no errors though. I since have bought a new hard drive and installed it, and still get the same message, but also something about a sector not found.

I was told I need to put the operating system back on before they transfer the data to the new hard drive. I can't seem to find the original discs that came with the computer when I bought it to be able to put Vista back on. Is there another way to get them on my computer or can I buy new discs?

Thank you!

Dell contact information
Contact them and ask about purchasing a set of original recovery disks for your model.
They should cost 50 USD or less depending on where you live. :D
Let me know if they could help you.
