Hi All, i just received a dell Optiplex GX620 from a friend, because she bought a new one. I brought it home, started it up, and it froze just before the XP log in screen. I started it in safe mode, and I can access everything from there, except the internet. I tried to do an OS restore through the i386 folder, and it says that there are files missing. I don't have the boot disks, she lost them the last time she moved. I tried the <ctrl>+<F11> and that didn't do anything. I have run out of ideas on what to do. Please help!

Your friend can get you the disks for free
