Dell oem cds don't need a cd key for a dell computer. The one that gets captured by belarc or magic jelly bean (on a Dell anyway) is usually not the same as what is on the sticker. They activate automatically too.
I have used the same dell xp cds on a wide variety of desktop and laptop dells spanning nearly a decade. The driver cd's are separate and the updated drivers can be downloaded. Just locate the network drivers and burn to cd or usb before you reload, then go to dell support and plug in your service tag number (if the tag is gone, just look in the bios screen main page)

The OEM's are getting away from this as some people are getting good at "hacking" bios code, and working around the BIOS-lock. Thus being able to install on any machine as long as you can hack bios code. The oem's also ran into problems with bios-locks when a bios update was completed on a computer and the original bios lock information was gone. These bios-locked cd's would tell you "you cannot use this cd on this computer".
