Does you computer have a restore partition on the hard drive? If so, you may be able to start the computer then press (I think) the F8 key and see some restore and repair options. Note that if you updated from a previous version of Windows to Windows 10 this option may restore the original OS. I don’t know if a Windows 10 update updates the restore partition.
 
You can also visit the Dell support website where you may be able to download a restore image for free. You will have to provide your PC’s service tag number (which should be on a sticker on the CPU box) and some other information, but it may save you some time and money.
